Have a Blessed First Day of School!
We hope you all enjoyed the Blessing of the Backpacks on Sunday. We certainly loved seeing all of our students in the Sanctuary. What a wonderful sight – our entire church family in one place, supporting one another and showering our students, teachers and parents with God’s Blessings! Please share your photos using #hmumcblessed. We would love to see all of those blessed students on their first day!
A Backpack Blessing
Gracious God, we lift before you these students as they begin a new school year. Open their eyes to the riches of your world. Open their minds to truth and knowledge. Open their hearts always to your grace. Bless them as they commit themselves to study and learning. Bless them in the questions they ask and the answers they find. Bless them in their friendships, old and new. Let your grace travel with these backpacks from home to school and back again. May the crosses upon the packs remind our students of the church that prays for them. And may these students know at home, at school, always and everywhere, your love that never ends. In the name of Jesus Christ, who is our Way, our Truth and our Life. Amen.
