Give, Serve, Love through the Back-to-School Outreach, July 22!
Posted Jul 13, 2017 by Kris Eldridge in Missions
This annual outreach provides us an opportunity to share the gospel and make disciples in our own backyard.
From a Back-to-School Outreach Guest-
We never imagined that your Back-to-School event would change us forever. Last year, our family experienced some very difficult situations. We came that day because we desperately needed help with school supplies and backpacks for our children. We were financially broken, sick, hopeless, and had no relationship with God.
It was so special the way we were treated as guests! My children loved the games, crafts, and the water inflatables! Everybody served us with joy. I asked one of the volunteers why you did this event and was told because Jesus loves me! What kind of love is this? I wanted to have that love. A person prayed over us and talked about what Jesus did on the cross. I had heard that before, especially at Easter, but I had never really understood what it meant for me. I made my decision for Jesus Christ as my Savior. My wife and kids also came to know Him!
I am grateful for the three nice backpacks and school supplies we received that day. However, I will be forever changed by the hope and love I received! God bless this church and all you do for those of us who need help. Thank you for investing your time and resources to help us to know that God loves us and cares for us always.
Join us for a fun-filled morning as we serve others and share the love of Christ! The Back-to-School Outreach will feature food, games, crafts, water slides, as well as a backpack giveaway for registered children. This will be an opportunity to pray and share the Good News with our neighbors.
There are three ways for you, your family, and community group to get involved:
- Serve at the back-to-school outreach. You can sign up to serve at www.fellowshiproswell.org/events. Areas include: prayer team, parking, games, crafts, serve food, and more!
- Donate backpacks and school supplies. Our goal is to fill hundreds of backpacks with school supplies! Donations will go to kids in Roswell and the surrounding community whose families live in the margin. Bring the school supplies to the Engage desk in the Commons by July 16 or to the church office by July 19. Click here for the school supply list.
- Make a financial donation; designate Back-to-School with your gift.
