Get ready for school with Refresh!
RefreshBISD empowers change in the lives of disadvantaged families and students within the Birdville school district. RefreshBISD is a one-day back-to-school event that provides not only backpacks and school supplies to families in need, but also helpful resources and a chance to connect with churches in our community.
Glenview Church is one again joining RefreshBISD to hand out free backpacks, school supplies, haircuts, eye exam, sports physicals, and hot dogs!
Let’s show our neighbors that Jesus loves them through serving their needs. Below is a list of serve positions available. To serve click here.
