"Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine... to Him be the glory."

Ephesians 3:20-21

About Backpack To School

This is our 12th year of providing filled backpacks, school uniforms, shoes, and much more to families in need of school supplies through our partner churches in Camden, South Philadelphia, Gloucester City, and through local organizations! But, even more than that, it's an opportunity for these families who may not know Jesus to connect to our partners in their communities. And, here at Covenant, it's a fantastic way for entire families to serve together! You do not need to go around the world to serve on a Mission trip. Missions is alive and well, right here in Doylestown!
