The Journey Bag Project


Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, and whoever receives me, receives not me but him who sent me. Mark 9:37

What are Journey Bags?

Journey Bags provide a tangible way to minister to children who are placed quickly into foster care. Especially when a placement needs to happen right away, children might arrive at their new foster home with nothing but the clothes that they are wearing! Journey Bags are full of practical and comforting items to bless these children and help them know they are loved, special and prayed for. The bags also ease the burden of the transition for the new caregiver so that they can focus on the child’s immediate needs.

How does it work?

Simply grab a backpack from the TFI (The Forgotten Initiative) table located outside of sanctuary. Ages baby-16 are available. Go shopping and fill it with the items on the list.

Return the filled bag by Sunday, August 4 for dedication and delivery throughout Central Illinois!
