Chicago’s historic Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church, affectionately known as “The Ship”, and Pastor Charles Jenkins host their annual holiday community outreach,”Christmas at the ‘Ship” on Saturday Dec. 19, 2015.

Registration begins at 6 a.m. and Distribution of food and toys begins at 9 a.m.


Throughout the year, teams of supporters work to secure monetary donations which are used to purchase food and toys for distribution in the community the Saturday before Christmas. These items are packed and distributed by church members, donors, local politicians and other nonprofit organizations, such as Chicago Lighthouse for the Blind and Toys for Tots Foundation. The community gets involved by attending and engaging with the outreach at Fellowship MBC, and by registering to receive food and toys. This annual event was started in 1997 by Fellowship MB Church founder and Pastor, Reverend Clay Evans with 100 recipients. To this day, this outreach continues to grow and this year Fellowship MBC is expecting to serve 2,000 guests.
