Blessing of Students and their Backpacks – August 21 & 22
Mark your calendars now to plan to attend worship on this special Sunday. We invite students of all ages to attend worship on Saturday, August 21, at 6:00 p.m., or Sunday, August 22, at 10:00 a.m. At each of these services we will pray for students of all ages and situations. It is not required that the students bring a backpack, but, if the student has one, he or she is encouraged to bring it.
This is an opportunity for students to be involved in their faith every day of the week. We connect their school life with how these students grow and learn as an extension of their connection with Jesus.
We involve students of a wide variety of situations. Over the years we have involved students in preschool through graduate school. We have involved students who are enrolled in public schools, private schools, and home school programs. We have involved students who are quite young through those well into their adult years.
Worship will be at our usual times of 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday. Remember to bring your backpack, if you use one. Most important is that we gather together in prayer and thanksgiving as we begin our new school year.
Here is a photo from our Blessing of Students and Backpacks from several years ago.
Special note: This will also be our weekend to celebrate our partnership with Lutherhill Ministries. Our guest preacher for Saturday and Sunday will be Matt Kindsvatter, executive director of Lutherhill Ministries.
