Missions and Outreach Ministry
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
The mission of Project Backpack is to have backpacks full of necessities readily available to hand out when we come across someone in need - whether it be someone that comes into the church office, or someone you see on the street corner. Not only will these backpacks contain food and hygiene items to help meet physical needs, but also a Bible and Gospel track to help fulfill spiritual needs.
There are tubs at each entrance of the church where donation items can be dropped off and used to pack backpacks by our Young Adult class. With each tub, there are also shopping lists available of the items we are collecting, but those items are also listed below.
If you would like a backpack to keep in your car, or to deliver to someone you know that could use one, stop by the church office during the week to pick one up.
"But if anyone has the world's good and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him? Little children, let us not love in word or talk, but in deed and in truth."
