Roy, Utah – On Sunday, July 31, 2022, members of The Gathering Place Church, a new church plant in Roy, UT gathered to fill 40 backpacks for school children in their community. With the drastic change in the economy and the rapid increases in costs for supplies, the church enthusiastically responded to help out the kids.

The backpacks were given through the North American Mission Board’s Send Relief: Backpack initiative. The supplies were all by donation of the congregation. We will deliver some backpacks to each of two local elementary schools and give some out at the annual Roy Days celebration.

The Gathering Place Church is a small congregation with a big heart who trust in a BIG God and has seen time and time again how He provides.
