Angel Tree

 

At Easter and at Christmas, our church joins together to support the children in our community.  This very popular ministry gives to a local mother's day out program and to our nearby elementary school.

For Easter, we deliver Easter baskets with stuffed bunnies, candies, crayons, coloring books and a story book about the First Easter to the children at the Montopolis Friendship Center Mother’s Day Out program.  Look for the Angel Trees located in the Narthex and Family Life Center entryway during Lent to help sponsor this ministry.

At Christmas, we deliver Christmas Story books and toys to the children at Montopolis. And, we often are able, thanks to monetary donations from the congregation, to give a "Holiday Bonus" to the very special teachers there.
AND...
We coordinate with the counselors at Menchaca Elementary School to identify children and families in need.

Using the Angel Trees located in the Narthex and Family Life Center entryway, we offer the congregation and our guests the opportunity to sponsor a gift or needed clothing item for each child. In addition, we collect money to purchase HEB gift cards to give to the families, along with Holiday Food Bags from our Food Pantry.

Each identified Menchaca Elementary School family receives an Advent packet with special advent activities, a story book about the First Christmas, and an invitation join us in upcoming events and worship at MUMC.

We hope to make Easter a little "Hoppier" and Christmas a little brighter for each of these children and their families.

To join in this ministry, look for the Angel Trees after worship services during Lenten and Advent seasons or call Sandee Setterquist at 512-750-8921.
