Research Triangle Park, NC, December 08, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Senior Pastor Andy Thompson, founder of World Overcomers Christian Church (http://www.wocconline.org), a nondenominational church serving worshippers in North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park community, has announced that the church is sponsoring more than 600 local children for the CARE Ministry’s Angel Tree project this holiday season. For more than four years, World Overcomers Christian Church has provided clothing, learning materials, toys and other goods during Christmas to area children in need. Members can pick an angel from the tree and then purchase the child’s requested and recommended gifts. The church collects items during its Sunday and Wednesday services, and members volunteer with the Salvation Army to sort gifts before delivery. Besides the Salvation Army, World Overcomers Christian Church partners with local schools, social workers and Operation Breakthrough, an organization that provides low-income families with the means to be self-sufficient, to receive names for the church’s Angel Tree children each holiday season.

“World Overcomers Christian Church strives to be a light in the local community, especially through our care and provision for those most in need during Christmas,” said Thompson. “This time of year can be incredibly difficult for the children who have to face the reality of poverty. We hope to make Christmas special for our Angel Tree children through our time, service and the giving of gifts.”
