Back-to-School Blessing


Students bring your backpacks for the backpack blessing! Actually, we bless the children and pray that they will have a happy, successful school year. Parents, please be sure to bring your students for this important milestone blessing.

  • 2-year-olds will all receive their prayer pillows.
  • 3, 4, and 5-year-olds will receive their Spark Story Bibles (if they have not already received theirs)
  • Teachers will be installed and blessed.
  • And all are invited to stay for a PICNIC!

Back To School Supplies

Hello, members and friends.  It’s time again for our July in-gathering of school supplies for Franke Park Elementary (our church’s Rising Stars school) and our own Matthew’s House Preschool.  Supplies lists are on the table in Bethany Hall.  We will pack up the supplies after worship on August 4th.

Last year we provided 27 school bags with supplies for Franke Park and five heaping shopping bags of supplies for Matthew’s House Preschool.  What a blessing that was for all the children!

Please see Sue Bernard or Todd Campbell for more information.
