Angel Tree

Angel Tree, a ministry of Prison Fellowship, works through local churches every Christmas season to provide gifts for children with incarcerated parents.  You will have the opportunity to “adopt” an angel at the end of November/beginning of December, but we also need “behind-the-scenes” people now!  To find out how you can help, contact Anna Valentine at 598-0273. 


Alive & Ten31 Trip Fundraiser

Alive and Ten31 are headed to Ireland!  Help support them by purchasing a King Soopers reloadable gift card for $10.  Every dollar reloaded on the card earns 5% back.  Drop by the church office during the week to pick up your card!

areas, including running games, serving food, donating sealed bags of candy (labeled drop-off chest located in the foyer), making baked goodies for the cake walk, and set-up and tear down.  Visit the info booth today!
