Children's Sabbath and Backpack Blessing Sunday

Join us for Children's Sabbath!
This Sunday, August 25

Celebrate children and youth all over the world at our worship services this Sunday! A wonderful service is planned with music provided by children and youth from our congregation, a blessing of backpacks, non-perishable food item collection, and a special message at our 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. worship services.

If you are able, please bring a non-perishable food item to church with you. Children will be collecting items from members in the congregation during the service, so please keep the items in the pew with you. All food will be donated to the People's Resource Center.

A blessing of the backpacks is another special feature of our worship services this week. All students of all ages, from preschool to graduate school, are invited to bring their backpacks and school bags to be blessed. It's a wonderful way to get the new school year off to a great start!

Please plan to join us for our special Sunday and feel free to invite others to participate in this holy Children's Sabbath service. See you Sunday!
