Blessing of the Students


0800-06-23 10:00 0800-06-23 11:00 America/Los_Angeles Blessing of the Students

There has, in the past, been a blessing of the backpacks as school gets underway. Really, this is a blessing of our children and youth. During worship on Sunday, September 12, we will pray for the children and youth of our church who are attending school: Virtually, hybrid and in person. They are dealing with a lot and so are the teachers and staff who work with them. As a covenant community, we know the power of caring for others, not because we have to but because we want to as an extension of God’s love through us. What a privilege it is to participate in God’s covenant this way. Families are invited to join online or in person as we recognize and pray for people in our congregation who are involved in education: Students, staff, teachers. And if anyone wants to bring their backpack, please do!
