August 18th: Blessing of the Backpacks and “Homecoming” Sunday

Got Pencils?  Check.  Notebooks?  Check.  Blessing of the Lord Almighty on the tools you need for the year?

Join us on the first Sunday after school starts for our annual Blessing of the Backpacks andcelebration as we welcome all of our families back from their summer adventures!  Come stock up on holiness at our Sunday services as we take a moment to give thanks for the gifts that let our minds grow and our knowledge increase, and offer a blessing on the things that help our students pursue their education, and a blessing for those who teach.

Students of ALL AGES and Educators (nursery school/preschool through graduate school, tech school, etc.) are welcome to bring their bags/backpacks and come forward for a special blessing during each of the Sunday Services on August 18.

After each service we will enjoy a potluck of your favorite summer dishes, and our annual WATER SLIDE for the kids!  So don’t forget your swim gear! 🙂
