Millerstown and Little Clifty United Methodist Churches in the Owensboro District gathered presents for children whose parents will be incarcerated during the Christmas season. 

According to the Pew Research center, more than  2.7 million minor children  have a parent in jail or prison. In other words, 1-in-28 American children (3.6%) have an incarcerated parent. 

What a wonderful ministry, reaching out to children who will be separated from their parents during this season of celebration!
