If you’d like to participate in Angel Tree, stop by the display after any of FAITH’s services on November 26‑27 or December 3‑4 and pick up an Angel. Purchase the item listed on the card and a $20 gift card, and return them in a Christmas bag on the weekend of December 10‑11.
Several years ago a man was serving time in prison. He found out that he could give a gift to his daughter through the Angel Tree Program and stay connected with his family through the generosity of a local church. That year, he signed up for the program and had his girlfriend bring their daughter to FAITH to receive an Angel Tree gift. After this, she started attending FAITH with her daughter each week and they both made the decision to give their lives to Jesus!
When this man was released from prison and reunited with his family, he started attending FAITH with them and also made the decision to give his heart to the Lord. That Christmas the man and his family served at Angel Tree and had a chance to give to other kids who were in the exact same scenario they had been in just a year before.
Fast forward several years to today. This mother and father are still attending FAITH and are now married! Their daughter is going to college and is a recipient of a Faith Foundation Scholarship given by FAITH to hard-working, deserving college students. Last year she served as FAITH gave out the Angel Tree gifts to kids who had a parent in prison.
