Pack a Gift • Deliver Hope

Willow Creek's Prison & Jail Ministry helps thousands of incarcerated people and their families find hope behind—and beyond—bars. This year is no exception. COVID-19 has left inmates even more isolated as most facilities are allowing no visitors, even family members.

We want every incarcerated person in the state of Illinois to be seen and cared for this Christmas, so we are packing "prison pack" gifts to send this December! Bring your family and friends to a packing event at one of our seven locations this October! 

Select your location and time to register:

*Please note: All events are held outside unless otherwise noted. For safety measures, masks will be required for the duration of each serve. 

Not able to join us in packing?

We still have opportunities to support our Prison & Jail Ministry:

Sponsor a child of an incarcerated parent through the Angel Tree. 


Angel Tree is a special holiday initiative organized by Prison Fellowship that blesses children of the incarcerated by reaching out to them and their families with the love of Christ. Angel Tree mobilizes volunteers to deliver a gift and a personal message of hope to children on behalf of their parent in prison. 

This year, Angel Tree is going virtual! You can sponsor a gift package for an individual child, and Prison Fellowship will send sponsored gifts directly to Angel Tree kids. Each gift package costs $22 and includes a gift card, a personal message from the parent, and an opportunity to receive an age-appropriate Bible. Learn more and get your tag here. Use code JR78O.
