Angel Tree Prison Ministry


Angel Tree a ministry of Prison Fellowship allows parents in prison the opportunity to give their children a Merry Christmas.  Names and caregiver information is shared with the churches participating in the Angel Tree program.

The mission of the program is to deliver Christmas gifts in the name of their incarcerated parent/s.  However, the most important part of this mission is to share the gospel with these children and their caregivers.

Coordinator:

  • Calls caregivers for gift requests.
  • Fills out the Angel Tree gift tags.
  • Coordinates delivery of gifts.

Volunteers

  • Buy Christmas gifts for the children and return to the church.
  • Deliver gifts to the children before Christmas and the gospel is shared with the children.  They are given a gospel bead cross and a Bible.

Meridian Food Bank


Summary: The Meridian Food Bank ministry is dependent on the generous donations of our church members and visitors.  Donations assist in feeding and supporting those individuals and families which need assistance and depend on our generosity.  I've been blessed with the opportunity to transport those donations to the food bank for several years.

Donate: Food items primarily, canned, boxed and infant diapers.

Where is the tote located? It has had several locations.  But, most recently as you enter the church on the west side entrance, close to the coffee bar.

When are donations delivered? The donations are delivered when the bin is full.

Contact: The church office and we will put you in touch with Jim Johnson, our Food Bank coordinator.
