One week before Backpackpalooza (our backpack giveaway) we'll be stuffing backpacks with supplies and inserting a special note from the BUMC community. We'll start with dinner at 6:30, stuff backpacks, then enjoy dessert. Thanks in advance to Hope Williams from Pilgrim Baptist church who will provide dessert.

Backpackpalooza
Saturday, August 5, 10am–1pm
Backpackpalooza is a special day for children of families identified as low income attending schools in San Mateo County who would benefit from the gift of a new backpack and school supplies for the start of school. We purchase brand new backpacks and fill them with school supplies. The children and their families are treated to a very special day filled with grilled hot dogs, a jump house/slide, balloon twister, live band, and more!
      If you'd like to help connect with the community, register in the worship hall or send us an email. We still need help with: Face painting, Popcorn Station, Jump House Supervision, Lions Club Hot Dog Grilling from 11am-12noon, Setup at 8:30, Breakdown at 1pm, Greeters, Snow Cones. Souvenir t-shirts will be given away to wear at the event.

Donations toward Backpackpalooza can be made online here.

"My family started going to the BUMC when our kids were born and more recently, we've become active members. We find this church has a great sense of community, meaningful outreach programs, an engaging pastor, a really wonderful 9:30am worship with an amazing band!, and a great Sunday school program (taught in a Montessori style called Godly Play) with teachers that our young kids are happy to see each week. Going to this church each week really brings our lives into focus in a relaxed and thoughtful way."
