DON’T MISS THIS GREAT OUTREACH OPPORTUNITY on August 3. We will have the opportunity to show the love of Christ to those who come to our church for our 13th Annual “Community Backpack/School Supply Give Away” for school aged children in Alliance, Marlington, Sebring and West Branch school districts. We will be giving away supplies to the children, playing games with them, witnessing to the adults, and feeding those that come.
There will be jobs for youth and adults so please see the sign-up sheet in the lower foyer July 21 or 28 or call the church office to say you want to help. Last year we gave away over 1500 backpacks and supplies and fed over 600 people.
You can also help in the following ways by:
Donating cookies - we need 80 dozen to serve with lunch. (Please drop off cookies to the church office no later than July 31).
Donating backpacks - NO WHEELS PLEASE! Drop them off in the box in the lower foyer.
Monetary Donations – It would be so appreciated! Mark your envelopes “School Supply Give Away.” If you have questions, please call Outreach Pastor, Roger Meir.
