Blessing of the Backpacks

On August 8th, our church will have our annual blessing of the backpack service in which students bring their school backpacks and we pray over them and place a tag on them as a reminder they’ve been blessed and prayed for.

We want to add a new element this year.

Many students and their famililes struggles to afford school supplies. We want to help.

The plan is to have each of our Morning Connection Groups provide one or more backpacks, fully loaded, with supplies for a student.

Choose a grade level and buy from the list for that grade. Choose a backpack that is generic enough to carried by a boy or girl. Bring your backpacks ready to be blessed on August 8th.

We want to focus this year on James E. Bacon Elementary. Click here for their supply list.

Don’t forget to TAG your BAG! Because all of the grade levels request different supplies, please label your bag with a tag stating the grade level that you bought for. If you drop your bag off at the santuary, we have tags available in the foyer.
