Church holds ‘Blessing of the Backpacks’

From Staff Reports

Operation Backpack at Eupora First United Methodist Church collected and blessed 68 backpacks and additional school supplies for children in Eupora, and blessed the backpacks of FUMC children.

The “Blessing of the Backpacks” was part of the Sunday morning service at the church.

Additionally, the Eupora Community Outreach Ministry sponsored its annual back-to-school and school supply giveaway program Saturday at the Cathedral of Deliverance. The supplies, including backpacks, were provided by ECOM by way of fundraisers and donations received from local churches over the past few months.

Donated backpacks can also be dropped by the office of First Baptist Church of Eupora during business hours as part of the Love Bags Project in Webster County Schools.
