Blessing of the Backpacks

In partnership with Cedar Ridge Elementary School, we are collecting brand new backpacks and school supplies in the narthex. In addition to backpacks and school supplies, many students at Cedar Ridge need uniforms. We are accepting donations of uniform clothes: polo-style collard shirts and pants (khakis, blue jeans) of all sizes.

We'll then bless the donations and the backpacks of our own students, teachers, and administrators during all church services on Sunday, August 25. If you have questions about donating to Cedar Ridge, please contact Neal McGowan.

In addition to providing school supplies, you can further support students in Waco by donating money to Packs of Hope. This program provides students a bag of food for the weekend and holidays so they will not go hungry. $195 provides a bag for a student all year or 165 pounds of food donated. Simply write on the memo line of your check Packs of Hope.
