Appalachian Christmas Outreach
Backpacks Due November 7
The Caldwell Baptist Association in conjunction with the Baptists on Mission would like to encourage our churches to participate in packing backpacks to meet the physical and spiritual needs of people living in the Appalachian Area. One of the greatest ministry needs in this area occurs around Christmastime. NCBM is calling on churches statewide to respond to this need through Appalachian Christmas Outreach 2020. The state has a goal to collect 18,000 backpacks of items to be distributed to Appalachian children in areas of need in December 2020. Filled backpacks must be taken to Lakeview Baptist Church, 325 Shasta Lane in Lenoir on Saturday, November 7, 2020 from 9:00am until 12:00pm. Please do not bring the backpacks to the Baptist Center.
