Angel Tree * Willow Creek Health Center

Angel Tree is a program of Prison Fellowship and a ministry of the local church. Angel Tree seeks to transform the lives of the children of prisoners, their incarcerated parents, and their families and to reconcile them to their heavenly Father and each other.

At Christmas, Angel Tree provides a specific opportunity to connect with families and begin to minister to them. People from Clovis Hills purchase and provide gifts to the children of inmates in their parent's name. With each gift delivery comes the opportunity to share the love and hope of Christ. The cost of Angel Tree Christmas is minimal, approximately $40 per child reached. Each child is to receive a minimum of two gifts. When we send you the children's names we will include a suggestion for one fun gift and one article of clothing that the prisoner picked out using our gift guide. When you contact the children's caregivers, you should get their approval of the prisoner's gift suggestions and find out if they have anything more specific to add to the request. Each gift must be new and valued at $15-20.


Many elderly people live in nursing homes, assisted care facilities and extended care centers for the remainder of their lives. Some are fortunate to have family and friends visit them regularly. However, many suffer through loneliness and no one around to visit them. Hence the mission of ministry of Clovis Hills at the Willow Creek Center. Folks from Clovis Hills visit residents at Willow Creek Health Center and participate in a Worship Service. This happens every month and there are various ways to serve. All elements of a typical worship service are available such as music, singing, teaching the message and fellowship. Prayerfully consider serving the elderly in our community by sharing the love of Jesus.
