AS OF December 7th, 2017



Foothill Church Prison Ministry has been writing and visiting inmates since 2008, and for the second year, we have decided to also focus some of our love to the innocent children that are suffering because of their parents incarceration. 

Angel Tree is a program that connects us with those children in our area.  We show them God’s love buy purchasing gifts for their parents and delivering them.

So, how can you help?  It’s simple.  Please take a name of a child or a type of gift, and bring the unwrapped gift back to church.  That’s it!!

Other ways to help are:

·     Donating a gift for any child

·     Donating a specific gift

·     Donating money to purchase a gift.

The women in our Prison Ministry will wrap and deliver your gifts along with the message that Jesus loves them.

Any questions please contact



Our church’s ministry at Village of Hope is bearing fruit in so many ways. Women are getting to know Jesus and women are becoming disciples of Jesus! They are becoming much better moms and wives and people through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Their children are blossoming and getting to know that they are loved, not only by their moms but by God and by people who take a couple hours out of their week to spend time with them. God loves these children, these women and He loves this ministry.

We are still in need of volunteers to go on Wednesday nights from 7:00 to 8:00 to watch the children while their moms are learning about Jesus and growing in their faith.

If just 12 of you sign up to go one Wednesday night per month, then those who go wouldn’t have to go every week like they have been. Please sign up to be a part of this amazing, fruitful, ministry. You can sign up by emailing Rita Thomas at and let her know which Wednesday of each month would be best for you.

We are blessed to be a blessing, but the awesome thing is, we get blessed when we are a blessing, too.
