Angel Tree Mission
‘Angels’ adorn a tree in the church lobby at Christmastime. Each of these very special angels represents a child whose parent is incarcerated. Inmates have the opportunity to send messages with the gifts we purchase, on their behalf. Angels are selected and gifts are purchased by our members. After the gifts are wrapped the angel is attached. We then deliver the gifts to the children in their homes. Help let the love of Christ shine on these precious angels. (Mercy, Serving)
