Backpack Ministry

The Backpack Ministry provides school children with a backpack full of food to take home for the weekend.
Contents change but a typical backpack will contain a can of chicken noodle soup, Ramen, shelf-stable milk, cup of mac ‘n cheese, individual packages of instant oatmeal, peanut butter crackers, Goldfish, granola bar, cold cereal, fruit cup, and popcorn.

The new school year is in full swing! Each week we are delivering 120 backpacks & volunteers are needed!
We are in need of volunteers to help fill bags each week and delivery drivers to take the backpacks to the school(s).
There is a calendar in the hallway next to the church office to sign up.
Or please email Marie Davis at with any questions or to volunteer. This ministry is just one of the ways we are fulfilling our mission statement at ILC to “serve God by serving people.”
