The Angel Tree Starts this Sunday!

November 19 - December 10

This holiday season, Hennepin members are invited to be angels and purchase gifts for refugee children new to the United States. The Angel Tree will be up in the East Entry on Sunday, November 19.

Please follow these steps:

1) Choose an angel from the Christmas tree.

2) Go to the SignUpGenius using either the barcode on the angel ornament or by going to the web address. 

3) Sign up for a child or children, and then bring your unwrapped gifts to the church, along with a label that has each child’s name, age and family number, by Sunday, December 10 and place in the bins in the East Entry

Refugee Services recommends buying only 3 gifts per child: something warm (hats, scarves, gloves, warm socks), something fun (toys, games, soccer balls, cell phone chargers, ear buds), and something educational (games, books, puzzles). For religious reasons, please avoid buying stuffed animals that are pigs or dogs. Thank you for giving! You all are amazing!!!

If you have any questions, please contact Leslie Wille at
