Our bus is empty! Help us fill it with your donations before August 14th.


Do you miss the smell of freshly-sharpened pencils?  Does the thought of rows of crayon boxes make your heart happy?  Or do you just want to know that your next trip to Target can make a big difference in the life of a child?

Congregations for Kids is once again holding its annual Good Start Back to School Drive!  Their goal is to fill a bus with supplies that low-income Bellevue students need to be successful in school this year, but they need YOUR help!  They’re specifically looking for cash donations or supplies from the list found here.  Please bring them to church and leave them in the marked box in the lobby before August 14th.  (Please note: the date on the flyer linked above is incorrect!)
