Have questions about the Angel Tree program? We have tried to anticipate issues that pop up. If we have not covered your issue, please drop us a note

Where and when can I drop off my gift at the church?
As you can imagine, we are trying to minimize in-person business at the church.  We set up these drop-off times to ensure someone from the Angel Tree mission is there to assist in handling the gifts in a safe way.  Please do NOT drop off at the church office.  The church office team, during the limited operating hours, is not set up to handle this.   Please abide by the schedule we have set up below. Someone will be at the entrance to the church sanctuary and will come out to your vehicle to take the gift(s) from you.  Please make sure your gift is clearly marked with the associated Angel number.
  • Thursday, December 3rd 2:30-4:00 pm
  • Sunday, December 6th 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
  • Friday, December 11th 2:30 – 4:00 pm
  • Sunday, December 13th 11:00 am – 12:30 pm
  • Monday, December 14th 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm
The last day to return gifts to the church is Monday, December 14th.

Are there gift suggestions based on age group?

Choosing a gift for a child you don’t know can be hard.   Here are some recommendations based on the age groups we are supporting:

  • Infant to 4 years old – a toy with a blanket
  • Ages 5 through 11, toys or games
  • Ages 12 and up a $20.00 gift card or board games


What do I do to prepare the gift?

A couple things to keep in mind:  No wrapping! Wrapping or putting the gift in any  kind of special bag is unnecessary because this year the gifts will be placed in the traditional white shopping bags in Trenton.

Secondly, it is important to indicate the Angel number on the gift.  When you bring it to the church, please tape a sticky or note to your gift with your Angel number clearly legible so that we know we have received your gift and who it is for.

Can I use Amazon or other buying service?

If for any reason you are uncomfortable shopping in person and would like to order  from Amazon, Walmart, etc. and have your gift shipped, prepaid, Pastor Rosemary Rentas is home with her kids learning during the day and has offered for you to ship direct to her home.  Here is her addresss:

Pastor Rosemary Rentas
101 Cornwall Ave.
Trenton, NJ 08618

The last day to return gifts to the church is Monday, December 14th.

I can’t find my angel number and/or other data from my puzzle piece.

Not to worry!   Just email us at angeltree@medfordumc.org and we will give you all the information about the child/children you are sponsoring.

Can I take more than one Angel/Puzzle Piece?

Absolutely.  After taking your first piece and entering your contact information you should be able to simply click on the “Return to Puzzle” button and select another.  You will get a separate acknowledgement email for each of the Angel pieces you take.

Ooops, I made a mistake entering my contact information. How do I correct it?

Not a problem!  Just visit our Angel Tree Contact page and let us know what happened.  We can update the database.  We can also re-confirm the information associated with the Angel(s) you chose.
