Bring supplies on Sundays & put them in the box in the narthex or bring them to the office.  Donations needed by August 20. 
Backpacks will be distributed & blessed at the August 27 service. All children are invited to bring their backpacks that day to be blessed.    If you or someone you know is in need of a backpack, please contact the church office to reserve one.   If you would like to help with putting the backpacks together, contact Chris Wyatt ( or 360-620-0607).
