Blessing of the Backpacks

This is one of the congregation’s favorite Sundays of the year, and it happens on the Sunday before school resumes.

At St. John’s, we send our kids back to school in a BIG way! Our worship services at both 9:02 and 11:00 are dedicated fully to our children! They participate in the services by reading scripture, leading prayer, and serving as ushers and greeters.

All of the children bring their backpacks and are invited down front for a very special blessing at the end of the service. This is a Sunday no one wants to miss!
