Angel Tree Christmas is a Prison Fellowship program that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. In most cases, local church volunteers purchase and deliver gifts and the Gospel to children in the name of their prisoner-parent. Many churches make an annual commitment to this highly rewarding program and recognize it as a way to care for some of the most overlooked members of our communities.
Summer Camps for Children of Prisoners: Angel Tree Camping
A good way to extend your Angel Tree ministry throughout the year is to arrange for prisoners’ children to attend Christian summer camp. Camp can be one of the most life-changing experiences that children of incarcerated parents can have. Camp gives the child an opportunity to have fun, fellowship with their peers, build relationships with caring camp counselors and to experience the love of God in the great outdoors. The camping experience gives the children the opportunity to strengthen their relationship with God.
Sycamore Tree Project
The Sycamore Tree Project helps repair the harm caused by crime by bringing together victims and prisoners to discuss issues related to crime and its consequences.
The Prisoner’s Journey
The Prisoner’s Journey is a transformational, evangelism and discipleship program that challenges prisoners to learn for themselves who Jesus said he is, why he came to earth, and what he calls them to do.
Week of Prayer
The Annual Week of Prayer can be observed at any time during the year. The week is designed as a special occasion for Prison Fellowship to communicate and connect with churches and the community in order to focus on ministry among prisoners, ex-prisoners, the families of prisoners, and victims of crime.
