It's a great opportunity to get the whole family involved and show love to our neighbors. Email Oksana to join the fun!

There are two great ways to get involved:

1. Fill a backpack! You can purchase supplies that will be placed in the backpacks we will be giving out. Backpacks and supply lists will be available in the lobby starting July 14.

2. Be a part of the team! You can help pack backpacks or work the lobby table before or after services during the backpack drive. 

Contact Jackie for more information.
