Christmas Outreach: Angel Tree

Provide a Christmas gift and Bible to a child whose parents are incarcerated. Through your gift, each child and parent will be connected with Prison Fellowship for ongoing relationship and discipleship. Prison Fellowship serves incarcerated parents by providing a pathway for strengthening and restoring their relationships with their children and families.

As a church, we hope to provide gifts for 300 children this year.

  • To sponsor a child, click here: Virtual Angel Tree and enter the code: ELGNJ
