On Sunday, August 12th, we will be having a Blessing of the Backpacks. Please have your student bring their backpack or any other kind of school bag with them to the service. Going to school for the first time or returning to school for another year carries with it the challenges, worries, hopes and opportunities that fill the lives of children and parents alike. Blessing the backpacks will remind the students that Jesus is always with them and that He will give them peace and comfort during their school year. Teachers and college students are welcome and encouraged to join in on this time of blessing also!
