Angel Tree is a ministry of Prison Fellowship. Applications represent children who live in the Asheville area whose parent or parents are incarcerated. Prison Fellowship recommends that $25 be spent per child. This hands-on ministry provides an important bond between parent and child. You will contact the caregiver of the child to make arrangements to take the gift to the child before Christmas. If you want to sponsor a child, call Norma Melton at 828-252-1864, or email email@example.com.
The Christmas "Red Box" ministry project is sponsored by the associational women's ministry. The red boxes are here at the Resource Center. Please call 252-1864 to reserve your red boxes.
