Blessing of the Backpacks and Back to the Block Party
2019 Fall Kickoff: Back to School Backpack Blessings August 18, 2019 at the 10:00 a.m. Service
Every summer we collect school supplies and backpacks in partnership with All Saints' Refugee Ministries for students in need in Clarkston Georgia. We then designate one Sunday each August when everyone is invited to bring their own backpack (or briefcase) to be blessed as we prepare for the fall program year.
Back to the Block Party August 18, 2019 after the 10:00 a.m. Service, in the Courtyard
On Sunday, August 18, 2019 after the final 10:00 a.m. service of the summer, join us as we say goodbye to summer and welcome everyone back to the block with a picnic lunch, ice cream sundaes, arts and crafts, live music, a water slide, and a dessert contest.
There is no charge for the picnic, but we do need to know how many people to expect. Please click the link below to reserve your space at the party by Monday, August 12. Email Jill to let her know if you’d like to enter the dessert contest.
