**As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep schools closed, we are still packing our Backpack Buddies bags each week. They are packed at the church using donations and purchased items and then distributed to children in need in Benson through the Four Leaf Clover Program.**

To donate toward the purchase of food for bags, click here and choose ‘Backpack Buddies.’


Hunger is no stranger to Benson, and Backpack Buddies is one way we can help. Each week, our church prepares 80+ bags of food for students at Benson Elementary who don’t have much to eat at home. On Fridays, the children take home their bags, which are filled with enough food to keep them full throughout the weekend. This is an incredibly rewarding ministry, and you can be involved in several ways:


  • You can help us pack bags on Sundays during the school year. We meet at 10:35am in the pantry next to our kitchen.
  • You can donate food and bring it to the church—click here for a flier listing needed items.
