What a wonderful day of watching the Body of Christ come together to minister to the community of Mt. Vernon at the Back to School Blessing on Saturday, August 15th. It was the first time at the beautiful Skagit Valley College complex and so many people in the community helped make this a wonderful day of serving and reaching out to those in need in our community. Backpacks & school supplies, the worship trailer and gifted Christian musicians, games, hot pancakes for breakfast, food distribution, clothing, the gospel of Jesus shared by Child's Evangelism Fellowship and other community help groups making themselves available to the many families that attended. The love of Jesus is manifested through His compassion for those people that are in need and it was a testimony to that love being made available throughout the day. A tribute also to the many faithful that prayed and worked to provide the resources and coordination to bring this together.
