Blessing of the Backpacks

September 2019
We are sending our students back to school with our prayers and blessings. We will hold a Blessing of the Backpacks during both worship services this day. All students (preschool through high school) are invited to bring their backpacks to worship and join us for a special blessing. After the blessing, students will receive a special tag to place on their backpack to remind them that their church family will be praying for them throughout the year.

The Children's Ministry Team presents all 3-year-olds with a Deep Blue Storybook Bible. UMW presents all 3rd grade students with a children's Bible. Presentations happen during both worship services.
