8/27 - Backpack Blessing

Date: Sunday, August 27, 2017
Time: 9:30 AM -
Location: Central's Sanctuary

Backpack Blessing Service - Sunday, August 27 9:30am
Each backpack distributed by Central UMC is customized for each child based on the school supply list from their school district in the Triple Cities.  Signups for backpacks will begin in August in the Clothing Center.  (Hours: Tuesday 10-12, Wednesday 11-1 and Thursday 5:30-6:30)  Parents with their children are asked to pick-up their backpack after the Blessing Service on Sunday, August 27th.
 
How can you help?  By bringing in school supplies!  The list of items needed will be on a bulletin board in front of the church library in the Education Building. Below is a partial list of items needed for the backpacks.  If you would rather donate money and let someone else do the shopping, checks can be placed in the offering plate on Sundays or mail to the church office.  Money will be used to purchase the actual backpacks this year.
