Backpack Ministry

This year we are doing things a bit differently with our backpack ministry!  We are collecting school supplies and backpacks individually, and then giving the children who need a little extra help the opportunity to “shop” for their new supplies from what has been donated.  We will collect supplies and backpacks from now through August 17.  On August 18, we will take the donated materials to Candler Elementary School and the parents and children will come there to pick out their supplies and fill their own backpacks.  Listed below are the supplies that we are requesting.  There will be a donation barrel in the sanctuary clearly labeled for school supplies.  Please let Melissa know if you have any questions.
