Blessing of the Backpacks

The sharpened pencils and blank notebook paper that accompany a new school year hold promise of a fresh start. September beckons friendship, daring to try something new and self-discovery. The days are full and the weeknights busy. And always, the backpack slung on the shoulder seeks to hold it all. Come to Kick Off Sunday at St. John's on September 8 and students and teachers bring your backpacks and bags to be blessed at the 10:15 service. Receive a backpack tag as a reminder that wherever you go, you are part of a faith community that has your back!
