Embracing Our Community through the
Transformative Love of Christ
Our Community Schools - Back to School Mission
Yes it is that time, time
for our ‘Back to School Mission Project’!
As we all know our community schools are in need. There are attendance issues, many children are
behind in reading, lack of community support, low teacher pay, HUNGRY CHILDREN,
CHILDREN IN NEED and the list goes on and on.
So many times our first question is “How did this happen?”
our first question should be “HOW CAN I HELP?”
There are MANY ways you
can HELP our community schools.
o Be in prayer for ALL our community schools - your mission team is
working on distributing NEW APPLES to help remind us to pray for our schools
and also give us direction on specific prayers needed
o Be a
volunteer - in the classroom, in the
library, in the office, on the first day of school…
o Support our
Weekend Backpack Ministry- The cost
per weekend food bag is $4.12 per weekend that means you can support a child
for a year for $148.50.
o Support our Back
to School mission project monetarily
or donate school supplies
This year’s mission budget
is very slim so we desperately need your supply donations and/or monetary
donations. We hope to have enough
monetary donations to divide them between the school supplies needed in our 3
community schools, Huffman Academy, Martha Gaskins Elementary and Huffman
Middle School AND our weekend backpack ministry that supports hungry students
at Martha Gaskins Elementary.
YOUR DONATIONS ARE NEEDED AND NEEDED NOW. SO SORRY FOR THE SHORT NOTICE BUT TIME HAS
SLIPPED UP AND THE ALABAMA TAX FREE WEEKEND IS July 19th - 21st
(please forgive the short notice..so sorry).
Supplies Needed include: Baby Wipes, Clear/Mesh
