Backpack Ministry

When you bless a child, you bless a family. When you bless a family, you bless a neighborhood; when you bless a neighborhood, you bless a city and when you bless a city, you bless the nation”.

As the new school year begins, we try our best to help children whose families are unable to provide the necessary backpacks & school supplies for Backpack 3them.  Our church  organizes a Backpack Ministry fundraiser in support of these families, and collection bins are set up in the Gathering Space.

Any backpacks and/or school supplies you are able to donate may be dropped off at the church Tues.-Fri between the hours of 9am-3pm through Sunday, August 3rd.  Feel free to call the church office at  462-4946 with questions.  Supplies needed are as follows:
