Be Generous: Become a Back-2-School Sponsor!

school-supply-drive-metro-webThe Back-2-School season is well underway – kids and parents everywhere are shopping for new clothes, shoes, school supplies, lunch boxes…the list goes on.  Last year our church blessed the students and families of Ridgecrest and GE Peters Elementary Schools through the distribution of nearly 400 backpacks filled with school supplies. Let’s out-do ourselves, Metro! This year let’s reach MORE STUDENTS and give away MORE SUPPLIES than before.

Your Personal Ministries Outreach Team has decided to broaden our impact by combining the next Beyond the Walls event (9/6/14) with our Back-2-School giveaways.  In addition to the outreach activities we have planned for September 6, we will target 3 public school locations near our church and host a School Supplies Fair & Ice cream party for the students at their schools. But to make a powerful impact, we need your help (as always)!!

Why not put to practice one of the Beatitudes we’ve discussed: BE GENEROUS! Sponsor a child to go back to school with the supplies he/she needs to be successful. As we consider the needs of the community, we cannot and will not forget our own at GE Peters!  Together with the Education Department we are asking that you donate $10 per student and become a Metro Back-2-School sponsor for a student at GE Peters and/or a local elementary school… you’ll even get a special token of appreciation for your gift!  Don’t limit yourself to 1 student, though.  Why not commit to sponsoring a family of 4 children?  How about sponsoring an entire classroom of children?  Your donation will be used toward the purchase of the items on the PG County school supply list for each child. But if you would prefer to buy the items yourself, please bring your donations to the fellowship hall and place in the marked containers.  Donate online today!

Again, our Back-2-School Supplies Fair will take place on September 6, during our Beyond the Walls Sabbath of outreach.  Although there will be other service opportunities, we will need lots of volunteers to help with the school supplies distribution at each location, so don’t forget to sign up to volunteer.

Donate today and become a Metro Back-2-School sponsor! FMI contact Vonric ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) or Latéy Bradford ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

LLB 101 : I liken myself to a lightbulb -- when the power is turned on, all you can see is the radiance of the light that is emitted. You see my compassion, ambition, and charisma ... But when the power is turned off you recognize that its just a light bulb. Simply put... I am nothing without God, but with Him I know no limits!!
