SHBC was proud to partner with First Church of downtown Newark to supply 35 Fully Stocked back-to-school backpacks distributed at the Lookup Community Center!
Over 200 students arrived for back pack pickup! What a joy to see our congregation “Step Up” and meet this challenge as we prayerfully walked alongside students re-entering the new school year!
