Church provides presents for disadvantaged children

Published: Thursday, December 20, 2012 at 02:47 PM.

“We had more people wanting to buy gifts than we had children to distribute to,” the Rev. Lisa Ausley said.

The church invited the children and their legal guardians to a Christmas party to distribute the gifts. Each child also received a PFI-donated Bible designed for children 7-15 with incarcerated parents.

The church will continue to reach out to these families after the holidays, Salazar said.

“We have invited the families to our church and we will stay in contact with them throughout the year,” she said, noting plans for birthday and other holiday cards.  

“We just want them to know, that we are still here for them,” Salazar said.

“Were hoping to make lasting connections with these families and have the opportunity to minister to them,” Ausley said.
