HOW OUR FAITH COMMUNITY HAS BENEFITED FROM THIS MINISTRY:   This ministry started because a few of the church's kids knew students who were starting school in the fall without backpacks and supplies. 

The kids talked to the principles or counselors in each of their schools and made arrangements to provide supplies to a handful of students.  Since 2006, about 1,340 students in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Community Schools have received school backpacks and supplies.  

What we've learned from a bunch of kids is this:  When we realize the true nature and purpose of community — faithfulness to Jesus and serving those in need — we open ourselves to authentic discipleship and lives that are focused outward.  And ironically enough, this is often when we experience real biblical community most.
