Blessing of the Backpacks
Sunday, August 9 at the 9:30am and 11:00am worship services
Join us on this special Sunday for our first ever “Blessing of the Backpacks!” Just in time for Back to School, we will pray a special blessing over students (and their backpacks), asking God to guide, protect, and nurture them this year. Students of ALL ages are invited to bring their backpacks with them to church on Sunday, August 9 for this special event.
Blessing of the Backpacks is a wonderful way to acknowledge the beginning of a new school year and recognize the importance of learning. We also want our students to know that God is with them at school and that their church cares and supports them all week long.
In addition to our students, we will also take the opportunity to recognize, thank, and pray for all who are involved in the education of our students: teachers, administrators, bus drivers, and all school workers.
Be sure to invite a friend, neighbor, classmate or teacher to join you for worship on Sunday, August 9 at the 9:30am or 11:00am worship service.
