St. Francis Episcopal Church

Bringing Christ to Denham Springs and beyond

Angel Tree Program

Angel Tree is a ministry outreach program at St. Francis that provides residents of nursing homes or assisted living centers, who are alone and without family visitors, the delivery of Christmas gifts. St. Francis volunteers purchase and deliver gifts of small personal items and the Gospel to lonely senior citizens. 

St. Francis Commitment

St. Francis makes an annual commitment to this highly rewarding program, We recognize it as a way to care for some of the most overlooked members of our communities.

The Process

Angel Tree Christmas begins when a church member registers their church for the program with the support of their pastor or other church leader(s).

Once a church is registered, the process works like this:

 

Receive Angel Tree Names

Sometime in the fall, Angel Tree coordinators will receive the name, resident, and contact information and a list of favorite personal items which are needed.

Display Angel Tree Name Tags

Angel Tree tags are completed with the name of these seniors, along with gift suggestions, and are displayed in your church.

Angel Tree Announcement

Church members need to be notified of the program —bulletin, pulpit announcement, bulletin board, etc.—and invited to select names from the Angel Tree display.

Gift purchase and delivery

Church members purchase, wrap, and deliver a gift for each senior who is alone—and in the process, share the Gospel.
