LOCALLY THE NEED FOR SCHOOL SUPPLIES IS GREAT! In response
to this we are partnering with WCSG 91.3 FM radio station to supply
area kids with school supplies (some of these children are our own
Club 3:16 kids.) This “Class Act Backpack Drive” officially
began on July 21 and continue until September 2. Note: this
is an area event so we do not have to supply a huge amount of
supplies…we can help in the amount YOU want to give. We have
a box here at church by the downstairs entrance doors where you can
deposit any supplies that you wish to contribute. Suggested items are
glue, pencils, crayons, trapper keepers, backpacks, pens, rulers,
paper, erasers, and scissors. On Thursday, August 21 Grace has
agreed to send volunteers to WCSG to stuff backpacks with supplies,
so they are ready to give to the children. We will need some of you to
volunteer to help. Then on August 30, at a Club 3:16 Family Picnic,
you are invited to come and give backpacks to those Club 3:16
children who have registered and are eligible to receive school
“SCHOOL KITS” Service Project – As you all know, we are participating
in the RCWS School Bag project. Many school bags have been sewed
and are being sewed. Thank you to everyone who has already donated
supplies. You can continue to donate to this project until our church
deadline which is September 14.
