Students, teachers, administrators, coaches, staff members, and anyone involved in education are invited to bring their backpack, briefcase or diaper bag (for little ones) to be blessed during either worship service on Sunday, August 13. This blessing is given in recognition of, and thanksgiving for, God’s daily presence in our lives. As a sign of the blessing, each participant will receive a visible reminder and the prayers of the community of Second Presbyterian Church throughout the year. We will also be collecting school supplies for our school partner, Bale Elementary School, and we invite you to bring any of the following items to donate: washable markers, crayons (24 count), #2 pencils, colored pencils, glue sticks, wide-rule notebook paper, or boxes of Kleenex. We hope to see you there!
