One of the strengths of our church is that we have a big heart for the community. We are always looking for ways to help in areas where people are in need. We have people who are always on the outlook for something to help with or someone to help.
Just recently, we were made aware of a need at an elementary school in the Gilbert area. There are many children who attend the school who do not have that much food to eat at home over the weekend. The children get most of their food from provided meals at school.
We started Operation Backpack. We presented this challenge to those who attend Sunrise. Everyone has been challenged to help the supply the children with enough food to fill a backpack. The backpack will be sent home filled with needed food supplies for the weekend.
We are now in the process of helping to fill the backpacks with food. We will be collecting food through Sunday, March 5, 2017. — Pastor Dan
