Children's Sabbath and Blessing of the Backpacks

Join the United Methodist Women in celebrating children and youth all over the world! In honor of this day, children and youth from our congregation will help lead the service and provide special music. Children of all ages are asked to bring their backpacks (or briefcases) to church at 8:30 and 10:00 a.m. Pastor John Smoke will give a blessing of the backpacks (and briefcases) to get the new school year (and work year) off to a great start! Each child is asked to also bring a non-perishable food item for donation to People's Resource Center.
