The Angel Tree Prison Fellowship Program nurtures a meaningful connection between incarcerated parents and their children. As in past years, Broad Streeters are invited to purchase and wrap Christmas gifts that are given on behalf of a parent in prison.
Each child will receive two gifts costing $25-$30 each; one clothing item and one fun gift. Tomorrow is the last day to pick an angel off the Angel Tree in the narthex.
Monetary donations help purchase identical shirts and water painting kits for members of the God’s Treasures class for developmentally disabled adults.
Volunteers to deliver Angel Tree gifts are still needed for Sunday, December 17 at 11:30 a.m. Sign up at church or email firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a very meaningful activity.

Seeking Peace at Home: Central Ohio Faith Leaders Speak
December 4, 2023, 2:00PM - 3:30PM
Featuring Amy Miracle, this webinar brings together three central Ohio religious leaders who are experienced in interfaith dialogue. They'll talk about how the current violence in Israel and Gaza is affecting us at home and how they are trying to care for both their immediate congregations and the broader community. Imran Malik (Noor Islamic Cultural Center, Dublin/Safe Alliance of Interfaith Leaders/Abraham's Tent), Sharon Mars (Temple Israel, Columbus), and Amy Miracle (Broad St. Presbyterian, Columbus) share their thoughts on how to foster peace in communities at a time of general anxiety, divided understandings, and differential vulnerabilities. The webinar is free but registration is required.
