Blessing Of The Backpacks, COVID style

Every August we send students back to school with a blessing, and COVID-19 will not stop us this year. On Aug. 9, between noon and 1:30 pm, students are welcome to bring their backpacks, tablets, laptops or tote bags to the portico for a drive-through blessing and a bookmark.

The bookmark will feature this year’s Sunday School theme: “Together, Gathered to God.” The theme is based on Matthew 18:20, “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”

The blessing is for students of all ages and stages — whether you’re learning virtually or in person, whether you’re enrolled in preschool, college or the school of life.

Please enter the parking lot from the King Street entrance, drive through the portico and exit onto Woodrow Street.
