Backpacks for Appalachia Project – (Now known as Backpacks of Hope) – Each year, we collect backpacks filled with items during the month of September. Thank you to those who made this year’s project a great success! Through your generous donations, our church was able to deliver 194 filled backpacks to Cleveland, TN for children in need.
Do You Love Decorating?
Are you looking for your place to serve in God’s Church? We are looking for volunteers to step up and serve in our Sanctuary Beautification area. This would include arranging the baptistry flowers, arrangements for the tables in lobby, and decorations for Christmas and other special holidays. We are looking for a team of people and also for one to take the lead and head this up. If interested, please call the church office 770-461-5318.
|Thank YOU, Georgia Baptists
In 2017, Georgia Baptists are once again partnering with Appalachian Regional Ministries to provide Backpacks of Hope. The new name, Backpacks of Hope, reflects an additional emphasis in southwest Georgia as well as Appalachia.
Our goal for 2017 is 35,000 backpacks.
