BACKPACKS FOR SUCCESS!  The Mission Committee is partnering with the Housing Authority to provide backpacks for the children for fall.  We have a goal of 75 by July 15.  Each backpack needs: 17 inch backpack, pencil case, one dozen pencils, 1 pair scissors, 1 box 24 crayons,  1 pack wide-ruled filler paper, 1 composition notebook, 3 glue sticks, 1 pencil sharpener, 1 expo marker and an eraser (big or several pencil topper type).  We also want to include a box of tissues and personal size hand sanitizer.  Donations may be brought to the office, if you wish to donate funds for us to purchase, simply mark your check 'backpacks.'  The cost of one backpack with everything is approximately $45. 


BUCK IN A BASKET for June will help us continue to build our Preschool Learning Center scholarship fund, enabling the PLC Board to help families in our community afford to have their child attend our high quality school!  You can put your donation in the basket during worship or send a check with the memo Buck in Basket-PLC.  And THANK YOU for your generosity!
