Alabama WMU is sponsoring Christmas Backpacks for the Mississippi River Ministry again this year. These children living along the Mississippi River are from generation after generation living in deep poverty in this region. Our church is providing 25 backpacks to be filled by Sunday School classes or individuals. Alabama WMU’s goal is 6,500 backpacks. Instructions are included inside the backpacks. The backpacks may be picked up in the foyer on the bench in the hallway. Please sign your name as you pick one up. They are due back Wednesday’ November 1 and may be left on the bench. Contact Juanita Smith with questions.
