Promotion Sunday is set for the morning of August 14th. Be on the lookout for information if your child or youth will be taking the next step from Sunday school class to another, or from our children’s Sunday school department to our youth ministry. It is important that we mark these important times of transition. We will do so both during the Sunday school hour and during worship. The worship service will also include a time for the Blessings of the Backpacks and Teacher Bags. All children and youth are invited to place their backpacks at the front of the Sanctuary as they come into worship. Teachers, and others who work in education, are invited to place their bags or backpacks at the front as well.  We will have a time of recognition and blessing for all that have already started, or are about to start, a new school year.
