Our backpack ministry serves children and families in need at Monroe Middle School. At the end of each school week, bags full of food are sent home to provide meals over the weekend. Most children would have little to nothing to eat until they go back to school on Monday. Please keep this ministry in your prayers. When you go to the grocery store, make it a habit of picking up one or two needed items from the list below. This is also a great way to minister as a family to show your children the joy in serving and giving. Items can be dropped off in the white-carpeted Sunday School classroom near the choir room. Or simply bring your items to the church office during business hours.
Bags include a selection from the following items:
Cereal, Instant Grits, Instant Oatmeal, Pop Tarts.
Lunch & Dinner Items
Beanie Weenies, Canned Chicken, Canned Tuna, Canned Vegetables (Carrots, Corn, Green Beans, Peas), Chicken Noodle Soup, Pork & Beans, Ramen Noodles, Ravioli, Shells & Cheese, Spaghetti & Meatballs, Tomato Soup, Vegetable Soup.
Applesauce Cups, Fruit Cups (Fruit Medley, Orange Slices, Peaches), Peanut Butter Crackers, Pudding Cups, Raisins.
