what is angel tree?
Angel Tree is a program of Prison Fellowship. Goal is to strengthen relationships between incarcerated parents and their children and support the families of prisoners year-round.
How can I help?
Buy a Gift
Each holiday season, we partner with Prison Fellowship to supply gifts for children of those who are incarcerated. Click here to learn more about Prison Fellowship.
How it works:
Angel Tree provides us with names and ages of children who are in need of a gift. On Sunday, November 5th, we distribute the “Angels” and you get to buy a gift for a child.
Bring the gift to church on Sunday, December 12th, and we will distribute them at a Drive-Thru Pickup event on Sunday, December 18th.
Help with Collection and Distribution
December 5th through the 18th we’ll need help with collecting gifts, coordinating with families, and distributing them at the drive-thru event. Learn more about the specific needs below.
