Mission of the Month

October 2019 - Care Bags for Foster Kids

Why Support Our Care Bags Mission?

When our local foster care system takes in a new child, they do all they can to make the transition go as smoothly as possible given the circumstances. However, available resources are not sufficient to provide the children with a duffel bag to store their belongings, so the kids are given large trash bags. It's degrading.

We donate large duffel bags (filled with a few extra nice things) as a small way of making those children feel left desperate. They don't have to drag their belongings around in a garbage bag.

Your support for October's Mission of the Month will help at least 12 children receive such a gift.

How Can I Help?

All October long, we will have white "Mission of the Month" envelopes in the seat-backs in our sanctuary. Use these to give your mission gift along with your regular tithe or offering.

Or check the list of items being collected. Drop off your donation at the church office during October.

Here's the list:

coloring/writing supplies




fidget toys



water bottles (reusable)


hygiene items

stuffed animals



toy cars
