Back to School Blessings 2020

In News by Kim Eiffert

Back to School Blessings
August 7-9, 2020
We know this time of year is usually filled with anticipation and excitement about what the new school year has in store. This year our students, parents, teachers, administrators and all who work in our school system are facing complicated decisions and even more complicated emotions as we look towards the 2020-2021 school year. The last several months have shown us that in many ways we can’t rely on what we have always known and that we are capable of adapting to new and different circumstances. However, something that we can rely on is that our God is constant and ever-present in the midst of whatever challenges we face.
