Backpacks and School Supplies are Part of a Neighborhood Outreach Project Lead by Fellowship Church and Ed Young.
Playing an effectual role in the surrounding communities is at the top of the list for this Dallas- and Miami-based church and pastor.
Grapevine, TX, July 12, 2012—
As part of supporting the students in the communities surrounding its five locations, Fellowship Church is launching a “back to school” missions endeavor where they will be accepting backpacks and school supplies through the month of July. Through giving of resources or time, there are plenty of opportunities to reach into local areas and help children have a successful back to school experience. Ed Young hopes this event will serve as a catalyst to many families as the first step to becoming part of the plan that God has for their lives.
"Every summer at Fellowship Church, Love Your neighbor is a huge part of the life change that happens! This is an exciting opportunity to reach out to our communities and help them not only hear about the love of Jesus, but to see it in action through the church, and to get involved in all that we have going on here!" says Ed Young.
In addition to donating supplies, there are also opportunities for church goers to volunteer their time as part of this event. People can help sort and organize the school supplies before they are distributed to individuals in the community. Interested individuals should contact the Fellowship Church main offices.
Supplies can be dropped off at any of Fellowship Church’s five locations through Sunday, July 29. A list of needed supplies as well as contact information if interested in volunteering can be found on Fellowship Church’s website.
