On Sunday August 21, 2016, volunteers from Source Church came together to host its first ever Backpack Giveaway event. And what a successful event it was. The event was hosted at Source Church’s current meeting location, Cornerstone Prep Academy Wilson Campus in West Mifflin. Approximately 200 backpacks with basic school supplies were donated by the Source Church congregation. The event also featured games, face painting, haircuts, crafts and a bounce house.
We are just so thankful for the opportunity to serve the people of West Mifflin and the surrounding Pittsburgh communities. God has overwhelmed us with His presence since our church launched this past Easter, and we were excited to bless the local families that were in need. -Source Church Lead Pastor, Rick Morgan
Back to school can be an exciting time for both parents and children alike. Unfortunately it can also be a stressful time for families that are having trouble making ends meet. The Backpack Giveaway event is just one example of how Source Church is meeting its vision of being a welcoming community that seeks to reach the lost and broken and lead them to transformed lives through Jesus Christ. Source Church Lead Pastor, Rick Morgan would like to thank all those who donated and contributed their time and talents to this impactful community outreach event.
