Backpack Blessing 2017

In News by Kim Eiffert

2017 Blessing of the Educators, Students, Pubic Servants, and Backpack Blessing

Plan now to join us for worship as we prepare for the new school year and our traditional Backpack Blessing! Each week kids are invited to receive a different special gift (collect them all!), a backpack tag, and blessing.

We are also celebrating teachers, administrators, & public servants during this time!

August 12/13, 2017
Blessing of the Educators
Teachers, Principals, Administrators, Cafeteria Workers, Bus Drivers… anyone who plays a role in reaching our children through the education system, are invited to be a part of this special time of blessing as we prepare for the new school year.

August 19/20, 2017
Blessing of the Students & Backpack Blessing
All students are invited to bring their backpacks to worship for a blessing for the new school year.

August 26/27, 2017
Blessing of Public Servants
All Public Servants are invited to join us during worship for a special time of honor and blessing. We would like to acknowledge the dedication and commitment it takes to serve in these roles. If you are Active-Duty Military, work in the Police or Fire Departments or are an elected Public Official, please plan on joining us.

Because the School Districts surrounding Grace Avenue have staggered start dates this year, backpack tags will be available all three weeks, although August 19th-20th will be our traditional “Blessing of the Backpacks” weekend.

Blessings will take place during all worship services: Saturday at 5:30pm Sunday at 8:30, 9:45 & 11:00am
