As a reminder, on Sunday, August 19th, we will celebrate the start of the new school year with a “Blessing of the Backpacks” during worship. All students and educators from preschool through college are invited to bring their school bags to have them blessed. We would like to include friends and family in this blessing, as we give thanks for our schools, our teachers, and our opportunities to learn and grow. So if you know of students, teachers, principals, or anyone in education please invite them to join us!
Also, to help students start off the school year with everything they need, we will be collecting school supplies. We will bless the supplies on August 19th, when we have our “Blessing of the Backpacks,” but we will be collecting items between now and the last Sunday in August. Everything donated will be given to South Elementary school, where the children from our “Three Neighbors” attend. Suggested items include:
9:15 Coffee and Fellowship
9:45 Sunday School
10:45 Choir Practice
