There will be a cart in the hallway on Sundays for anyone wishing to drop-off supplies when coming to worship. If you wish to drop off during the week, please call the church office and someone will meet you in the garage for a quick in and out transfer!
Monetary donations also accepted! Received funds will be used to purchase the above materials. If you wish to make an on-line donation. Use this link for online donations: MSPC Backpack donations then then look for “Backpack/School Kit Donations” under MSPC Specific Offerings.
Full backpacks are given to children who enter the school year after the start date as both a welcome gift and a way to jump start their learning. Other backpacks are given out to children as their own go missing or become too worn. Extra supplies are shared among teachers. Mr. Hicks, the principal at Foose Elementary, let us know that every item donated according to our list is received with great appreciation and is used throughout the year!
The elementary children meet for fellowship events throughout the church year, from September to May. The group typically meets on Sunday directly following the 11:00 a.m. church service and enjoy lunch together. After lunch we proceed to the event of the day for a time of fun, learning and fellowship.
