God can use you to bring joy to a lonely child this Christmas. This Sunday, November 20, you'll find paper ornaments on Christmas trees set up in Trinity's link room. Each ornament represents a child whose parent is incarcerated. All of these children live in our area. Each ornament has the child’s name, gender, age, the parent’s name and message, and a wish list.

Last year when I talked to one of the children’s caregivers, she said that her stepdaughter would like to have an American Girl doll for Christmas. I know how pricey these dolls are, so I was hesitant to put it on the child’s wish list. But I also know that with God all things are possible. Fast forward to all the Angel Tree ornaments hanging on the trees, surrounded by members of our congregation reading the different wish lists. A woman with a big smile on her face came over to me holding the American Girl doll wish list ornament. It turned out her daughter’s grandmother sent the dolls even though she had outgrown them, so this mother had prayed there would be a child on the Angel Tree who wanted an American Girl doll.

Please choose a child or children. All gifts for these children need to be new items. After you have chosen an ornament and purchased a gift(s), please wrap it and affix the top portion of the self-adhesive ornament to the present. Gifts are to be returned to the Angel Tree table no later than Sunday, December 11.

Another way to show God’s love (and receive a blessing as well) is to sign up to help with delivery on Saturday, December 17, from 9:15am to noon. There will be a clipboard for signup on the Angel Tree table, or contact Bob and Fran Fleischman: call 434.295.8355, email ffleisch@efleisch.com, or text 434.960.4068.

Participating in Angel Tree is one beautiful way you can “punch holes in the darkness,” as Robert Cunningham spoke of in his message this past Sunday.
