Angel Tree, a ministry of Prison Fellowship, flows naturally out of our In-Prison Ministry. It is a ministry where individuals and churches purchase Christmas presents for the children of inmates. Last year Bereans generously purchased gifts for 50 children. The Angel Tree families are invited to our Christmas Cantata, which is followed by a luncheon and Christmas party where gifts are distributed to the children from their incarcerated parent. It is our hope that relationships are made between the families of Berean and the Angel Tree families. At the party, the Gospel is shared through the telling of the Christmas story. 2016 will be Berean's 4th year of participating in Angel Tree Christmas.
It is our hope that relationships will be established with Angel Tree families, and we hope this will lead to opportunities to share the Gospel. Our prayer is that the families will feel the love of Christ, join us in worship, and involve their children in our children's and youth ministry programs. Angel Tree children are offered scholarships to attend summer camp with Berean's children. Last year, six children went to camp and one boy made a profession of faith; winning souls is the ultimate goal of Angel Tree!
