ANgel Tree 2020

The Angel Tree Ministry provides local children in need with Christmas gifts.


This year the Angel Tree Ministry will look a little different due to COVID-19. We have a virtual Angel Tree this year. The one thing that will not change is that this is our opportunity to serve as the hands and feet of Jesus by providing clothing and Christmas gifts to children in our community.


Please be in prayerful thought about how you will help with the Angel Tree Ministry this year. The biggest need is for you to adopt an Angel (or two or three or more) off the virtual Angel Tree. If shopping is not your thing, please consider financially sponsoring some angels. 

  • To sponsor an Angel, you can write the check to the church and put angel tree ministry in the memo line or write it to UMW and put angel tree ministry in the memo.


The second biggest need is for people to help with the present pick-up.
