All Summer ’16 Back to School Bash

As the school year gets started, one local church wants to make sure your kids are properly suited.
That’s why New Birth Full Gospel Baptist Church in Gulfport is having a back to school book bag giveaway. This is an annual event and will be held this year from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. tomorrow at the church which is located off Highway 49.
Church and community members have been donating backpacks for tomorrow’s distribution. Backpacks will be given to all children who show up tomorrow. All their parents or caretakers have to do is fill out a form. New Birth Full Gospel Baptist Church Pastor Kevin Layton said, “My motto of ministry is not just building a church, but it’s actually meeting a need for those who need. This is definitely a need. Having raised my children to school and being there, I was able to see it firsthand. I felt a need to actually do something.”
There will be plenty of things for kids and adults to do at the giveaway, including 3 point basketball, a bounce house, face painting, food, drinks, music and more.
