Blessing of the Backpacks

Remember the anticipation of the first day of school? I know that I do. I loved the smell of those new crayons; the beauty of a brand new PINK eraser; and the way my notebooks just screamed out with organization. But I also remember being scared. Who would my friends be? Will they like me? What about my teachers? What will they be like?  Will I get lost wandering the halls?  In our Old Testament reading this Sunday, Jeremiah is scared too (Jeremiah 1:4-10). But God has a message for him AND for us . . . “don’t be afraid, I am with you”!  Come join us Sunday for worship and to share in the “Blessing of the Backpacks” as the new school year is upon us.  See you Sunday!
