Angel Tree Presents

When Mom or Dad goes to prison, a child may feel lonely and forgotten, especially around the holidays. Share the hope of Jesus with a hurting child in your community as you provide a Christmas present and a personal message of love on behalf of their parent in prison. It starts with a gift, and leads to restored lives.

What is Angel Tree? 
Angel Tree is a program of Prison Fellowship that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts and the gospel message in the name of their prisoner-parent. Our fellowship has been given a list of children who are in need of a gift this Christmas due to one or both of their parents being incarcerated.

How can I help?

CCCV has been entrusted with a list of children to partner with the Angel Tree program. This list of names will be at the gazebo after Sunday morning and Wednesday evening services where you can choose who you would like to provide a present for. The name, child’s gender, age, and a gift suggestion specific to that child will also be made available. All gifts must be turned in at the church no later than Sunday, December 2nd, and gifts must come unwrapped.
