Six churches in the Lewisburg district of the Susquehanna Conference joined forces for a backpack ministry for their local elementary school.
Pastor Jim McGee of Five Mountain Charge (Bloomingdale UMC, Muhlenburg UMC, Hunlock Creek UMC, and First Shickshinny UMC) and Pastor Gail Kitchen of McKendree UMC and Oakdale UMC spearheaded the project. Congregations gave monetary donations, backpacks, and school supplies resulting in 160 filled backpacks for the primary school students.
