Blessing of the Backpacks
Sunday, September 10th at the 8:00AM and 10:30AM worship services

Join us on this special Sunday for our annual “Blessing of the Backpacks!” In honor of going back to school, we will pray a special blessing over students (and their backpacks), asking God to guide, protect, and nurture them this year. Students of ALL ages are invited to bring their backpacks with them to church on Sunday, September 10th for this special event.

Blessing of the Backpacks is a wonderful way to acknowledge the beginning of a new school year and recognize the importance of learning. We also want our students to know that God is with them at school and that their church cares and supports them all week long. 

Family VBS
Sunday evenings during the summer

Maker Fun Factory was a 5 week adventure for the whole family held from July 9th - August 6th. We not only discovered that God made us - but for a purpose, too! Families participated in interactive storytelling, music, games and crafts each evening. Families also met a new Bible Memory Buddy each week to remind them of God's love.
