All students, teachers and school staff are invited to our Blessings of the Backpacks during the Sunday service on August 11.Bring whatever bag you take to school with you as we pray for you and the new school year. To pass the blessing on to others, starting 7/21 through 8/4 the church will be collecting school supplies for students at Lincoln Elementary in Oakland.  Please bring new items for those who would struggle to purchase their own and place them in the box in the entryway. Consider buying a new backpack the same as you’d buy for your student, and contains these 4 categories as top priorities: 1. Pencils, erasers and sharpener. 2. Box of colored pencils and a box of crayons.3. A small ruler. 4. 3-two pocket folders. Lincoln’s new principle Ms. Mukta Sambrani very much appreciates our assistance!
