Join us for a special back-to-school service. We will bless students, teachers and the bags/briefcases all of us take out into the world to do God's work. Kids and adults alike are encouraged to bring their backpacks, briefcases, diaper bags, or whatever bags they use to be blessed. We are God's hands and feet, and this helps us to remember how we serve Him in our everyday lives as the children get ready to head off to school on August 28.
We especially invite all teachers — volunteer Sunday School teachers to preschool teachers, public school teachers and college professors, etc. — to come receive a blessing as they start the new school year, too.
The nursery will be professionally staffed during the family friendly service, which will be about 50-60 minutes in length and include Holy Communion.
Following the service, there will be POPSICLES served on the back patio. Invite a friend or neighbor to join you in coming!
