Church Ministries

Angel Tree Ministry

MISSION

To provide gifts for children whose parents need some help

GOAL

To show families in our community the love of Jesus at Christmas and always

RESPONSIBILITIES

We collect the names of the individuals that need some help purchasing gifts for their children, send a letter and forms to these families, and create the angels for the tree for the congregation to take to do their shopping. When the shopping is done and the gifts have been brought back to the church, the gifts need to be sorted and accounted for before calling the families for gift pickup or delivery.
