Blessing Of The Backpacks & Back To School Picnic
No matter what age – just starting kindergarten or attending college- don’t forget to bring your backpack or school supplies on Sunday, August 17th so that blessings may be offered that you will have a safe and productive school year.
Since school starts for some the next day, what better way to celebrate (or dread) with a Picnic after the 10:00am service. It will be a fun-filled day with blessings, karaoke and a picnic to get you ready for the new semester!
We hope to see everyone there!
