THANK YOU to everyone that was able to participate in the Christmas backpacks through the SBCV. We collected 49 backpacks and they were delivered this morning! The backpacks will be a blessing to children for Christmas!

Each year the SMRBC joins with other SBCV churches to prepare gift and ministry backpacks in preparation for statewide outreaches to needy communities on Christmas and beyond.

Praise the Lord for these testimonies of the impact of the work:

“Two families came to faith in Jesus as a result of the generosity and gospel opportunity of our backpack outreach.” – Ayman L. – SBCV International Leader, Northern Virginia

“Every school aged child in our town was able to receive a backpack and hear that Jesus loves them. Thank you.” – Billy G. -SBCV Church Planter, Saltville

“Not only did we get to help underprivileged kids (I’m sure that the backpack is all some will get for Christmas) but more importantly we got to share Jesus with others who may not have ever heard about his love.” – Gary O. – SBCV Pastor, Haysi
