Blessing of the Backpacks
Mark your calendars for Sunday, August 17th  for our annual Blessing of the Backpacks.  During the worship service (this is our special Sunday with only a 10 a.m. worship service), we will have all students bring their backpacks to the altar for a special "back to school" blessing.  Parents and students will receive a token of remembrance for the upcoming school year, and commit to a Jesus-filled year.   After the worship service, please plan to stay for our church picnic .  We will do another Blessing of the Backpacks on Sunday, September 7th for those who are unable to attend on August 17th.
