Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. When a parent is in prison, their children often feel forgotten. This Christmas, you can purchase a gift for one of these children, and let them know they are remembered…by their parent, and by God. Crossroads Angel Tree ministry shares the love of Christ by providing Christmas gifts to children in Ozaukee, Washington, and Milwaukee Counties on behalf of their incarcerated mother or father. It is easy to participate. Many hands are needed for this special event, please sign up here or in the narthex to shop, wrap, or deliver.
SELECT & SHOP: On Sundays, November 10, 17, and 24 select one or more paper angels from the Angel Tree in the narthex. Immediately complete your contact information on the white attachment on the back of the angel, returning it to the Angel Tree attendant. When shopping for your Angel Tree child, please keep your gift amount in the $20–25 range based on the wish list. Return your purchase(s) to the Angel Tree, by Sunday, December 1, unwrapped or gift-bagged, with the green or red paper angel (child’s name) securely attached.
DONATE: Christmas gift bags, shirt boxes, ribbons, tissue paper, and bows are also needed and can be placed under the Angel Tree at any time.
WRAP: Sunday, December 8, from 10:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., everyone is invited to the Angel Tree gift wrapping party in the upper level Great Room. Many hands are needed to help wrap all the 300+ Angel Tree gifts!
DELIVER: Deliver gifts to the Angel Tree families between December 8 and 24. You arrange the present delivery with the children’s caregiver at a convenient time based on your schedule.
