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.
