It is that time of the year again church family. The Missions Ministry is collecting backpacks and school supplies during July 29 thru August 24, to give away to children in the Manassas area in grades K-12. We will be distributing materials to Baldwin and Jennie Dean Elementary, Mayfield Intermediate, Metz Middle and Osbourn High Schools.
We prayerfully ask that each family provide a backpack and school supplies according to the following list. Collection boxes are located in the Marshall D. Williams Hall. We are Blessed to be a Blessing to others! For more information please contact Deas. Kimberly Burgan at email@example.com

During the month of September we are asking you to give a special offering, above your normal giving, to benefit residents of Puerto Rico and Haiti. FBC Missionaries travel to Puerto Rico in September to assist in rebuilding efforts as a result of last September's Hurricane Maria.
Meanwhile, our Haiti assistance continues as Haitians try to recover from a history of natural disasters and institutional neglect. So please prayerfully consider making a donation in September, using an envelope marked "Puerto Rico/Haiti," or given online.
Remember, we have been blessed to be a blessing.
