UP Angels

UP Angels is our Christmas angel tree mission. We provide toys, clothing, and necessities for families in Argyle and Denton. You can adopt a child or family! This sweet mission provides Christmas blessings to many families.

UP ministry adopts angels from Argyle and Denton each Christmas. This year, we are hoping to bless close to 200 kids, so we need your help! You can adopt one or two kids or an entire family. We can also take monetary donations if you don’t have time to shop.

You will be able to pick-up a tag in the church foyer starting on November 19th until December 3rd. The tags will be on the tree after Thanksgiving, but will be available the week before in case anyone wants to take advantage of the deals after Thanksgiving. Return all gifts, unwrapped, by Sunday, December 10th no later than 11am. Please include your tag so we know which child your gifts are for.

Thank you for blessing these kids during the Christmas season!

Gear UP Fall Coat & Snack Drive

Borman Elementary students wear uniforms every day to eliminate the distractions and insecurities kids sometimes associate with what they wear to school. UP ministry provides these uniform items each year at the beginning of school and then, again, when the weather gets cooler.

This November, we will be providing the uniform items along with new coats and socks. We are also providing some pantry items that the kids snack on when they get hungry.

UP ministry is collecting monetary donations to help purchase the required uniform items since they are very specific. We have also included a sign-up link below for the other items if you prefer to shop on your own. All donations will need to be delivered to the church by Noon on November 19th.
