We Still Need A Few Backpacks!

There are still a few backpacks that need to be filled for kid’s in the warming shelter.  If you go to the church office, you can pick up a backpack and fill it with the items listed animated-school-image-0024on the tag.  Or, check out the list of items needed for the kids and contribute some of those if all the backpacks are gone.  You’ll make a young person very happy.  The backpacks will be distributed on December 16th, in the evening, at the warming shelter.
