August 12th is STEP's annual Back-to-school event. A big part of that is distributing backpacks/bags filled with school supplies to the kids. Please take advantage of all the school supply sales, as well as the school supply tax holiday (August 4-6), and pick up a few extra things over the next two weeks. Most needed supplies include: backpacks, glue, glue sticks, crayons, pens, pencils, erasers, colored pencils, markers, scissors, rulers, spiral notebooks, composition books, filler paper, pocket folders, and binders. There will be a container in the hallway at church from this Sunday through noon on Thursday August 10th.
*Please note: we are now collecting supplies for two of our mission partners: STEP and Elijah House Academy (see the announcement about the EHA drive, with a list of what they need, here). There will be separate, labeled containers for each.*
