8:00 a.m. & 10:30 a.m. Blessing of the Backpacks (at each service)

Fall is just around the corner and with it, the return to school and studies. As the school year begins, all children and youth are invited to bring their backpacks to church for a special blessing. Adults are you heading back to school as students or teachers? Bring your bags as too! All symbols from the rhythm of your life this Fall are welcome (briefcases, work bags, diaper bags, laptop cases, etc.) We will pray together for the many transitions this time of year holds. Prayers over the bags will take place during both morning worship services on Sept. 2 and a special “blessing booth” will be present at the Sunday School table during ministry Sunday on Sept. 9, for folks who can’t make the Sept. 2 services. For more information, contact Rev. Amanda.
