Angel Tree Project
Saturday, December 23, 2017, 9:00am
For more than a decade, the First Pres congregation has participated in the Angel Tree Project. We sponsor 107 children who have a parent in prison. Each child receives two gifts, one article of clothing and one personal item or toy. No single gift may cost more than $25.00. Each Christmas Eve, members of our church deliver the gifts to the children with two messages; the first message is from the imprisoned parent, and the second message is that the love of Christ is given to them.
