Angel Tree Opportunity

In Milwaukee and hundreds of other American Cities this Christmas, forgotten victims of crime will receive gifts from people they’ve never met. These victims are the children of men and women in prison. They will benefit through Prison Fellowship Angel Tree, a program sponsored by Prison Fellowship, an interdenominational Christian outreach, and FUMC of West Allis. The Prison Fellowship Angel Tree at our church opens Sunday, November 20. Our church members can select one or more angels from the decorated tree in the church narthex. The requested gifts need to be purchased, wrapped, and returned to the church by Sunday morning, December 18. Judy Affeldt is the coordinator and she will need volunteers to help with phone calls, addressing envelopes, and delivering the gifts. If you can help, please call Judy or the church office and volunteer for this wonderful project. Look for more information in the coming weeks.

2022 Advent Study Opportunities

The Advent season gives us the opportunity to delight in the promises we celebrate at Christmas: the HOPE that Jesus will return and make all things new; the JOY that comes from worshiping Him today and always; the PEACE we experience with God today and we long for our world to experience; and the LOVE of a God who sacrificed His own Son. You are invited to participate in one or both of the following Advent Book Studies as we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus. Click here to review the offerings.
