The Angel Tree Store is a Christmas ministry at Christ Church that provides many opportunities for our generous congregation to get involved.
For the second year, we will be setting up a one-day temporary toy store in the Elementary Gym at Legacy Early College and we will invite the parents of 150 children to come shop for their kids. Parents pay $5 per child for admittance to the store, where they select a small, medium, and large toy plus stocking for each child. Members of our congregation with shop with the parents, assist in wrapping the gifts they choose and praying with and for the parents and their families. This approach to the Angel Tree concept empowers parents to select gifts which are both appropriate for their family as well as desired by their child, and allows parents the dignity and joy of selecting gifts for their own child.

Last year’s inaugural store was a wonderful success and we were able to provide Christmas for 100 children. This year we are excited to share that we have committed to an additional 50 children!
