Blessing of the Backpacks Set for Aug. 12 at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church


August 1, 2018

It’s that time of year again. Children, youth, college students, teachers, administrators and school workers are going back to school.

Most students in the Fountain Valley return to classrooms the middle of August and preparations are underway with the buying of school supplies and teachers getting their classrooms ready. Education is so important and Good Shepherd folks are safeguarding the efforts with prayer and blessing support.

At 9:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 12, students of every age, teachers and any school staff are encouraged to bring their backpacks, briefcases, computers, tablets, phones and supplies to worship for special blessings. If you forget, no problem, you are still invited to come forward. After all, it is really a blessing of people so you don’t need a bag to get blessed!

Invite everyone you know! We would love to have stacks of backpacks on this blessing day. What better way to start the school year than with a prayer and the love of God and Good Shepherd Church to support you all year long?
