Blessing of the Backpacks

All students are invited to bring their backpacks to church on Sunday, August 19 for a special service asking God's blessing on those who are starting a new school year.

This Sunday, August 19th we start a new sermon series “Playing for Peace.” In anxious times we find our purpose in God’s grace yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Come rewind, pause, and fast forward together.
