Ask most children and they would probably say that the Christmas season is their
most favorite time of
the year. For children with an incarcerated parent, however, Christmas can be a
very bleak time of year.
The Angel Tree Project helps these children by having church members purchase

restored dignity and hope. You may sign up to help sort presents on Saturday, December 14, or to
deliver presents starting Sunday, December 15. Contact the
church office for more information.
