Back to School Blessing

Our church kids are looking forward to the start of another school year! This week, the God Rockz group met together for a Back to School Bash. They each brought some new or gently used school supplies that will be handed out to the families who come to our mobile food pantry. They also wrote a note to go along with these school supplies to remind the recipients that God loves them. This Sunday during worship, these bookbags will be brought to the altar to be blessed along with the bags of all of the students, teachers, and school workers in our church. May Christ's light shine through us this year into our schools, our neighborhoods, and our workplaces.
