Dear Messiah and St. Stephen’s family,
As students, teachers and staff return to schools, colleges and universities this fall, it is important for us as a faith community to mark this annual milestone. Through this continuing pandemic, our support for students and teachers is vital to their transition into a new school year. During 8:30 am worship on Sunday, August 16th, worship at Messiah will include a Blessing of the Backpacks to commemorate the beginning of a new school year. Students are invited to wear their backpacks to worship; school staff are encouraged to bring an item or dress in attire representing their respective school. The Blessing of the Backpacks is an opportunity to give thanks to God for the gift of education, learning, students and teachers!
I hope you will join us on Sunday, August 16th for the Blessing of the Backpacks!
Rev. Steven Peeler
