BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS

Calling all students and their backpacks!  On Sunday, August 20, as the “school season” is starting, we would like to offer a blessing to all of our students, symbolized in the blessing of their backpacks.  Students should bring their backpacks to either of the services that day.  During the service, we will ask the students to bring their backpacks to the front of the church.  The backpacks go back and forth to school filled with all the needed supplies for the students to carry out the work required of them.  As the students commit themselves to study and learning for another year, we want to offer a blessing to remind them that they never carry their backpack alone as God also goes with them wherever they go.
