Backpack Ministries

Backpack Ministry

Our backpack ministry serves families in need at Stallings Elementary School. At the end of each week, bags full of food are sent home to provide meals over the weekend. Most children would have little to nothing to eat until they go back to school on Monday. With the ongoing giving support of our congregation and people like yourself, we are able to feed the entire family, not just the child. Please keep this ministry in prayer. Each week when you go to the grocery store, make it a habit of picking up one or two needed items from the list below. This is also a great way to minister as as family to show your children the joy in serving and giving. Collection bins are located at the front and back of the sanctuary and at the inside steps in the education building. Or simply bring your items to the church office during business hours.
