Adopt-A-Family is an outreach ministry that partners with families, local businesses and the community to help families in need at Christmas time. Each year hundreds of families are touched in a personal way, either by adopting a family for Christmas or by being adopted. During the Christmas season, families, groups and individuals express their desire to adopt a family. They are matched with families that are struggling to provide Christmas for their families. Those adopting provide a holiday food basket (or grocery gift card) and gifts for the children.

I want to...


Adopt A Family- To adopt a family click here or fill out a form at our Mall Table at Timberline Church in between services. The Adopt-a-Family volunteer matching team will prayerfully consider a family for you to adopt and will call you once you have been matched to share the details of the family with you and answer any questions you may have.

Donate- Many kinds of donations are accepted! We accept cash, check, credit card, toys, and Walmart and grocery gift cards. Click here to donate or bring your donations to Timberline church.

Be Adopted- Contact a local agency you are connected with or your child's school and have them refer you to the program. Most agencies and schools have the referral form, but if they do not, have them contact the Adopt-A-Family office. If you have any questions regarding the referral process, please call the Adopt-A-Family office.

How can I help?


Volunteer- There are many volunteer opportunities for you to get involved in. Want to organize gifts in our Toy Room, call adopters about their adopted family, meet our local families in the Family-to-Family room as they meet to give gifts? These are all options and more!

Giving Trees- If your business or one you know would like to provide gifts for families this Christmas, Adopt-A-Family can deliver you a Giving Tree. Giving Trees have ornaments with gift needs written on them that your employees or customers can pick and return with the gift to your business. Adopt-A-Family volunteers will routinely pick up your gifts. Gifts will go to families in need who attend the Christmas Family Festival.

Contact: For any and all questions please do not hesitate to contact us at aaf@timberlinechurch.org or come to the mall table between services.
