“Blessing of the Backpacks” is back and we need YOU!!!  Can you believe this will be our 5th year?  God is so good, and I know this year will be bigger and better than ever before.  This year we will be celebrating on August 4th from 2:00 until 4:00, so be sure to mark it on your calendar.  We cut it down to just two hours this year due to the heat.  I thought we would lose some workers last year.  Last year we stepped out on faith and gave the children REAL backpacks filled with supplies for their school year. This year we are going for-ward again with the purchase of backpacks that already have some supplies.  This will enable us to add little extras to their pack.  My cup overflowed as I watched those children walk around our church parking lot with their brand new filled back-packs, getting a cross or their initials put on it.  They stopped to make a craft, picked up a book to read or take home. Then they grabbed a bag of popcorn, ate a sack lunch and enjoyed shaved ice for dessert.  This ministry is huge to the lives of these children in our community.  We may never see the fruit – but we have planted the SEEDS that one day will grow.  Please be in prayer for this event.  Find a place to plug in.  We need your help.  Supplies will need to be purchased, bodies will need to appear to pack the backpacks and work for the event.  I have no doubt that God will provide – He always does.  If you know of a business that could help offset the cost, it would help greatly.  We do print a sponsor sheet and a prayer sheet to go in each child’s backpack to let them know that they are loved and they are special.
