School is starting soon! We will bless our students’ and visitors’ backpacks – these backpacks carry with them the work to be done, forms to be filled out and books to be read. They carry the hopes and dreams of the students for a new year.
Some days, so much stuff will fill the backpacks that the student may find it difficult to walk. Other days, they will be light and nearly empty. But on each and every day, students’ backpacks represent work required of the students gathered here. And, as in every aspect of our life, we will bring the children and their backpacks before God.
Let’s send the children off for a new school year with the prayers of the community.
Join us for a special service on Sunday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m. for the Blessing of the Backpacks! All children and their families are welcome.
Directions are available here.
