Christmas Backpacks for 2019
South Carolina WMU is partnering with Appalachian Mountain Ministry to provide Christmas backpacks for children and teens. South Carolina Baptists are challenged to provide backpacks for distribution at evangelistic events between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Learn About the Ministry
Appalachian Mountain Ministry uses Christmas backpacks as a tangible expression of Christ's love for each child and teen as they do outreach events in various communities.
