Sunday, October 19, Between Services – Pack the Backpacks!

Every year, St. John’s packs backpacks with school items to give to the Lutheran World Relief School Kit Project.  In places where Lutheran World Relief works, even a few required supplies, like pens and paper, may be more than many families can afford.In July and August, St. John’s members donated enough supplies to pack 120 backpacks!  Join us in St. John’s Hall during the Education Hour and help pack the packs!  This is an awesome service project for kids too!

It’s MEA Break!
