Angel Tree Sign-up


Believe it or not, it’s time to start thinking about our annual Angel Tree Outreach! Angel Tree exists to provide Christmas gifts to children in our immediate area who may otherwise go without. The process will be a bit different this year. Please fill out a form on September 11, 18, or 25 and place it in the Angel Tree Box in the Gathering Lobby. On this form, you may choose to sponsor a child in one of three ways: by purchasing gifts for them, by giving financially, or by volunteering to go and shop! Packets will be handed out in early November for those who opt to sponsor. Thank you for being the heart of the community!
