A small way to make a big difference

Every year thousands of students in Houston start the year without a backpack or the essential school supplies they need. Love Elementary (right around the corner from our Heights campus) needs our help to make sure each of their students can start the year off right!

Our simple goal with Backpacks for Love is to demonstrated the love of Jesus in a practical, caring way to children in our community. It may seem like a small thing, but a new backpack and supplies can do wonders for a child's confidence and sense of worth. Each backpack will include a small tag that shares a Bible verse communicating God's love for them.

It's as easy as 1-2-3

1. Purchase a backpack (or several!)

2. Fill them with supplies. Here is a link to recommended supplies for students at Love by grade. Please include an index card in the backpack that tells us what grade supplies you purchased. You can even include a small card from you and/or your children with a note of encouragement to a child. 

3. Bring your backpack(s) to our Sunday Gathering and Promo Pops event on August 26th. We'll collect the backpacks during the service and pray over our children as well as Love students, faculty and administration.

Last year we collected 40 backpacks for children at Love and every single backpack was distributed to a child in need.

Help us break last years record!
