Back to School Backpacks
This year, we are doing something different. Instead of asking for donations of backpacks or school supplies, we are asking to donors to provide the backpacks already filled. Similar to the Christmas Angel Tree Program, we have asked families/students what their favorite colors and/or themes (characters) are. Those ideas have been written on tags for donors to go shopping with. A list of school supplies has also been included on the tag to remind donors to also include age-appropriate items for their bags.
If you would like to "adopt a student", you can pick a paper tag in the chapel foyer/office lobby, we can email/scan the information, or mail the paper tag(s) to you. We are excited to launch this program in this particular format this year.
Major Ann could use a couple of volunteers to help finish interviews on Tuesday, June 13th, from 9 AM to 12 PM and 1 to 3 PM.
Donations are due Friday, July 14th. Distribution day is Tuesday, July 25th, from 1 to 3 PM.

August 7-12 Camp Redwood Glen, Scotts Valley, CA Registration opens next week
Anthem (formerly known as WYI), is a week-long event for young adults, ages 18-28 that fosters a space for participants to explore the story of Jesus and learn how it intertwines with their own stories and the stories of others.
Anthem is more than an event. Anthem is a safe place for young adults to experience community and discover what it means to live out the story of Jesus in their own lives
Anthem seeks to create a space where delegates feel empowered to worship freely.
Our goal is that attendees feel welcome at Anthem and to come as they are to worship Jesus.
Our anthem is Victory over sin. Our anthem is Communion with God and His creation. Our anthem is praise to the creator God for His love, power, and glory.
