Toy Drive leads to New Believers!

During the month of December, Arlington Avenue held a toy drive that provided Christmas presents for over 40 families in Riverside!

"Through the Lord's help and the generosity of our members, we were able to reach out to our community with a Toy Give-Away. All the children received gifts as well as a free lunch for them and their families."

Of all the families that came into the church that day, 2 stood out. The couple in the picture below, Hector & Araceli Valdez, decided to accept the Lord into their hearts that day! Since then, they have been faithfully attending church and even joined a discipleship class! They recognize and express that a transformation has happened in their lives, praise be to God!

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!" 2 Corinthians 5:17
