Angel Tree Volunteers Wanted!

Calling all Angel Tree Helpers!

The Caldwell Angel Tree will be up in the Dyer Hall hallway on 11/20/2022 ready to adopt our Angels. We have been given 300 Angels that need to be adopted! If you could help members adopt, complete the sign out sheet, and give out trash bags on 11/20, 11/27 and 12/04 between all services, please email Ann Spaight.


This is a great opportunity for a family to do before a service or for a Sunday School class to do before or after class. Be an elf!

We are asking each volunteer to decorate the trunk of your vehicle with a fun theme (and possibly wear a costume to go with your theme), provide 3 bags of candy for your station, and stay to pass out candy to the children of our church and community. We will have people coming around with extra candy if/when you run out.
There will be PRIZES… Most Creative Trunk, Most Creative Way to Deliver Candy, Best Costumes, etc. Let us know what theme your trunk will be, and how many parking spots you will need (in case you want to spread out your set-up). We hope you will join us for this fun event. GET CREATIVE and Have Fun!!
