Join us for a special multigenerational “Blessing of the Backpacks” and worship service on Sunday, August 24 at 10am. The service will offer children, youth, and adults of all ages the opportunity to reflect upon how we might carry the love of our church community and the tools of our faith with us as we walk through our days. As we approach a new school year — and a new church year — let’s affirm the boundless worth of each and every person, and encourage one another to seek a path of integrity and compassion.
Children and youth are encouraged to wear their school backpacks to church, so that we can include them in the Backpack Blessing ritual. If you are able, please bring a backpack to donate (see what kinds of backpacks are needed here). If your student is in need of a backpack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can set one aside for you.
