It’s Backpack Time!

Each year, we team up with other Hope Roswell churches to provide back-to-school backpacks filled with supplies for children in our area.  This year we are providing 20 backpacks.  You may sign up here to provide a backpack.  Or, if you’d like to participate but don’t have time to shop, please drop a check in the offering plate this Sunday with BACKPACK in the memo line and someone will be glad to shop for you!  Thank you for your generosity!

Mimosa Day Camp, July 25th, 10:30-2:30

 Journey is once again sponsoring a day of Mimosa Camp.

We need MANY volunteers to  run game/craft stations, assist with handing out backpacks, make sure kids are checked in properly, food prep, etc.  This is a VBS-style day camp for area children and a wonderful opportunity for us to show them Christ’s love. If you would like to serve, please contact Christy Dixon TODAY and indicate your interest.
