We want our students to start the school year off covered in prayer. On this day we are asking the children and youth to bring their backpacks to church. We will have them come in during each of the services and pray over them for a blessed school year. Once they have received their blessings, their teachers will take them out to the front lawn for face painting, craft, game, snack and BOUNCEHOUSE fun! This will be a fun way for the kids to meet their new teachers and to get the year started with a bang! This is an event that I would encourage your kids (and you) to invite their friends, neighbors and classmates to attend. On this day, you should plan on dropping off and picking up your kids in their classrooms (instead of the Community Room).
