Do you have a child who takes a backpack to school with them? At both Worship Services on Sunday, August 20, 2017, we will bless the backpacks of our children/youth AND the backpacks that our generous congregations fills for

underprivileged children at various area schools. We’ll ask God to protect the children/youth who carry them and help them to learn and succeed in school this coming year. Please make sure your students bring their backpack to church on August 20th to receive this blessing.
