Blessing of the Backpacks on Sept. 10

Going back to school, or going to a new school, can be anxious experiences for students, teachers, and parents. It can also be a time to celebrate growth and transition to a new phase of growing up. Wishing to acknowledge all these things, The Church of Our Redeemer will celebrate the beginning of the fall season by blessing backpacks and briefcases during the morning service. After the service, there will be a hotdog barbecue on the lawn. All are welcome.
