Backpacks for Appalachia

Our GBC President, Dr. John Waters, is challenging us all to become involved with “Backpacks for Appalachia.” Last year we sent out the word in the fall about the needs in Appalachia for school supplies, Bibles, clothing, toys, and candy for children for Christmas and you responded with nearly 5,000 filled backpacks. This year we are challenged to do even more to make a difference in the lives of families in Appalachia.

Please pray how your church family may be involved in sharing the love of Christ with children in Appalachia. Share this challenge with your church, and together we can make a tremendous difference in the lives of children and families who have such great needs. We do it all for the Glory of Christ!

On Mission Together,
J. Robert White
Executive Director, Georgia Baptist Convention
