Each year our staff buys many of the supplies they need for their classrooms out of their own pocket. We would like to extend an opportunity for the entire congregation to help out our school. We have set up a School House at the back of the church. On the School House are tags with items that the teachers are requesting. They are affordable items that are on sale now for Back to School. If you would like to help, please take one of the tags and purchase the item/items that are listed on the back. The quantity you buy is up to you. Any and all items will help. Once you have purchased them, please return the items you purchased along with the tag to the School House. We would appreciate any purchased items be returned by August 17th.
