Blessing of the Backpacks & Launch Sunday!
This year’s Blessing of the Backpacks will take place during the 10 a.m. service on August 27. The Children’s Ministry acknowledges that times of transition can be difficult. That’s why we want to make sure that any children graduating into new programs feel celebrated and welcomed! So if your child will be entering their season of Godly Play (ages 4 through 2nd grade), Kids of the Kingdom (3rd-5th grade), or becoming a member of the Youth Ministry (middle school and high school students), we want to recognize them on August 27 as well! This is a new idea that we’ve entitled, “Launch Sunday.” Once your child is recognized, they’ll have a chance to go downstairs and continue the celebration in their new classroom and meet the other children with whom they’ll be sharing Sundays!
