Angel Tree

December 10

DELIVER A GIFT, THE GOSPEL, AND LOVE

Available on November 20th

One in 49 children in the U.S. has a parent behind bars. You can help children know they are treasured and loved. The choices that lead to a prison sentence, as well as the distance created by incarceration, can strain a prisoner’s family ties to the breaking point. At Christmas, the emotional pain of a loved one’s incarceration grows even more intense; the distance is felt by children and parents alike.

Angel Tree Christmas gives incarcerated parents a way to provide a Christmas gift and a personal message, delivered by caring, local volunteers, as a tangible representation of their love. Every Angel Tree family is also given access to a free, easy-to-read copy of the Bible. And the church, which embodies the hope and grace of the Gospel to prisoners’ families, may continue to minister to the family all throughout the year.

Volunteers (Individuals, Families, or Groups) are needed to assist with Gift Delivery on Saturday, Dec. 10, Gift Collection and Organization on Friday, Dec. 9, and/or baking cookies for children’s gift bags. To volunteer click here.
