As part of the PCUSA, being "missional" is in our DNA. We're attempting to connect with our community, our city, and our world in all that we do. To learn about current projects and partnership and how you might get involved!
VOA invites you to be an “angel” this Christmas! Our Angel Tree program is done in partnership with Prison Fellowship, giving us the opportunity to buy gifts for the children of incarcerated parents, in the name of their parent. For 2.7 million children in the U.S., Christmas can be a hard reminder of the loneliness, abandonment, and sense of shame that is associated with having a parent in prison. Through this program incarcerated parents sign up their children, ensuring they will have presents for Christmas. We have the opportunity to provide hope, by communicating with caregivers to find out what is needed, buy gifts, and deliver them directly to the children. Paper angels will be available beginning Sunday, Nov. 19th in the Narthex. Each angel will have a child's information and gift suggestions (based on our conversations with caregivers). You’re invited to take as many as you’re able, purchase a clothing and toy item, wrap and attach the angel to the gift, and return to church by Dec. 10th. Delivery drivers also needed for Sunday, Dec. 18th! Sign up to drive below, and be in worship Nov. 19 to take an angel!
*There is no online sign up available for gift buying! Be in worship Nov. 19 to take an angel in order to buy a gift!
