Blessing of the Backpacks

Sunday, August 6th at the 8am, 9:15am and 11am worship services

Join us on this special Sunday for our 3rd annual “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 6 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.

This is one of our special Family Worship Sundays. All children and students are invited to join us for services in the Worship Center. This is an important Sunday for children of all ages! We will not have student (6th-12th grade) or children’s (K-5th grade) programming on this Sunday, but we will have nursery for children 4 years old and youger.

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. They will also be prayer over during service and invited to a special thank you reception in “The Rooftop” after service.

Be sure to invite a friend, neighbor, classmate or teacher to join you for worship on Sunday, August 6 at the 8am, 9:15am or 11am worship service.
