Backpack Drive

Backpack Drive
Foothill Church is hosting a back-to-school backpack drive! Please bring a new backpack filled with supplies from the following list to the Saturday night service or Sunday morning services between July 28th – August 12th, 2012.

Saturday Service: 5pm
Sunday Services: 9am & 10:45am

 
Our Goal
To supply Stanton Elementary School with100+ backpacks filled with needed supplies.
This is a great way for Foothill Church to become involved in our community by supporting our local
Glendora School district, Stanton Elementary, and their students.

 

 

Why Stanton Elementary School?
– Budget cuts have had a negative affect on the Glendora School District.
– The district has had to cut $10 million out of their budget over the last several years leading to the reduction of supplies provided for students each year as well as essential classroom supplies for teachers.This has put an added financial burden upon families and teachers.
– Stanton has lost some amazing teachers due to lay-offs, which has increased each class size.
– Over 60% of the students at Stanton receive free/reduced lunch, which is the highest percentage among the Glendora Elementary Schools.

Imago Dei is the Latin sentiment for the “Image of God.” The idea that mankind has been made in the image and likeness of God is rooted in Old and New Testament teachings. This position proclaims that humankind possesses certain qualities, characteristics, or endowments that mirror His nature and character. Considered the “crown of creation”, people are fundamentally different than all other creation, clearly existing for a higher purpose. Many would insist that humans are most like God when it comes to their unique relational qualities, meaning it is man’s ability to engage in complex interpersonal relationships that best reflects the divine. • Yet, our human nature tends to assign negative meaning to circumstances and/or things we do not understand. Unfamiliar cultures, different customs, or unexplained actions are filtered through this bias where our self-centered point of view is presumed correct and superior, leading us to assume the worst of others. • Re-claiming the Imago Dei resets our default position to a more gracious, understanding posture. So “beautifully and wonderfully made” leaves no room for groundless contempt toward others. To the contrary, if Imago Dei was accurately perceived we would be awe-struck, tempted to worship. Therefore, being formed in the image of Christ we are empowered to live deeply in community and ultimately enabled to fulfill the two greatest commandments…love God with all your heart, soul and mind; and love your neighbor as yourself. #loveyourneighborasyourself #imagodei #asinheaven #georgefloyd
