BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 20
As school quickly approaches, we know that many of you are feeling the emotions that come with the start of school: excitement, nervousness, hopefulness, etc. With everything going on in the world, we know that some of these emotions may be enhanced. In order to help relieve some of these feelings, we will be having a Blessing of the Backpacks on Sunday, September 20.
We will have two options for receiving this blessing. The first will be during the 9:30 Backyard Service on September 20. At some point during the service, Pastor Rebecca will say a blessing over the backpacks while you remain in your seats. At 10:30 (after the service) Pastor Rebecca will be offering drive by backpack blessings. You will remain in your car the whole time and Pastor Rebecca will offer the blessing through the window of your car.
Anyone who would like to have their backpack blessed is welcome to attend! Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions!
SUNDAY SCHOOL FALL UDPATE:
With much prayer and consideration, we have come up with a plan for Sunday School for the Fall! We are going to set up Sunday School the same way that we had Vacation Bible School. The families of our kindergarten-4th grade students are invited to attend a backyard “Sunday” school called Worship Our Way (WoW): A Bible Club! Although the curriculum is aimed at our K-4th children, younger and older siblings are always welcome to join!
WoW: A Bible Club will be on Tuesdays from 4:00-4:45, beginning Tuesday, September 29th
At WoW: A Bible Club, we will have a lesson, socially distanced games and more each week. Parents are required to stay with their child(ren) during this time.
FALL 2020 YOUTH GROUP UPDATE:
With much prayer and consideration, we have come up with a plan for Youth Group for the Fall! We are going to plan to meet outside weekly. We are going to try to meet outside as long as we can before it gets too cold.
Our 5th-8th grade youth group will meet on Thursdays at 4:00 pm starting October 1st
Our 9th-12th grade youth group will meet on Sundays at 4:00 pm starting September 27th
Youth Group for both groups will consist of a short Bible lesson and then time for socially distanced games. Each Youth Group will last for an hour.
