BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS – Sunday August 13
The return to school, starting a new grade with new teachers and students, even new schools is a big deal for children and their families! We want children to know that they and their lives are important to the church. And we also want them to hear that God is with them at school and that their church cares about what happens there. God and church are not “off to the side” or just a Sunday thing. So, children and students of all ages, as well as teachers and staff, are encouraged to bring their backpacks for a special Blessing of the Backpacks during worship!
