Back to School Book Bags

This once a year ministry involves collecting new book bags and school supplies for all ages.  The book bags are then donated to a local school and are distributed by the school officials as they deem necessary.

In August of 2017, we filled 26 new book bags with composition notebooks, pencils, pencils cases, pens, markers, crayons, loose leaf paper, glue sticks, hand sanitizer, erasers, and a few other goodies.  The bags were blessed at a morning worship service and received by staff from the school where they were donated.  We continued donating school supplies and book bags in 2018 and 2019.  In 2020, the school requested that we just donate school supplies and indicated they would let us know if they needed any book bags. 

Purchasing these supplies and stuffing them in bookbags (or large ZipLoc bags in 2020) is as rewarding for church members as it is for the students who receive them.
