Calvary United Methodist Church celebrates children helping children by collecting loose change and paper currency each week to fund Boomerang BackPacks. We conclude our weekly children's sermon by pulling a wagon down the center aisle with a jar in it. Into that jar offerings are made for said Backpacks. Across the Syracuse neighborhoods such things are done in different ways providing money for school kids so they won't be hungry on weekends. In a place like Syracuse, Indiana, it may be hard to believe there are hungry children. There are. Our school system provides these Boomerang BackPacks to try to alleviate some of that hunger. Calvary UMC is a part of this effort. Feeding the hungry is always a charitable endeavor. Feeding hungry children only makes the enterprise more important. Would that no child was ever hungry. We will continue to do our best to do our part for this necessary ministry. And as your pastor, I am proud of my congregation as it steps forward with loose pocket change and much more for hungry kids.
God bless you all.
