Backpacks for hope

This year we are collecting Backpacks filled with different items (ideas listed below) to take to Pikeville, KY. We will be taking a mission trip up there on December 8th - 10th. Backpacks are due on December 1st. More information is coming soon about the trip so please stay tuned! This is a great new partnership that started back during VBS as we collected our Missions Offering to help support. This year our goal is to collect 250 backpacks! You can help by bringing a filled backpack, praying for the children who will be receiving them and the team going to pass them out, and going on this trip yourself! It is open to people and families of all ages!


HOW TO PACK A BACKPACK:

1. Start with a NEW, zippered backpack

2. Choose gender and age on provided tag

3. Fill with NEW gifts

4. Also include The Christmas Story and A.R.M Postcard (both provided by the church.)

5. Securely fasten tag to backpack

6. Pray specifically for the receiving child

7. Bring backpack back to the church


GIFT SUGGESTIONS:

Toys, School Supplies, and Hygiene Items
