Blessing of the Backpacks and Workplace Items
August 30, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm
Many churches across the nation do a “Blessing of the Backpacks” ceremony during a worship service. But here at Second, we turn this event into an intergenerational activity, where we can bless not only our children who are returning to school, but also the adults in our midst who serve our community through a variety of vocations. On Sunday, August 30, the children are invited to either send a photo or to bring their backpacks to worship, where they will receive a special blessing at the start of the new school year. But we encourage everyone to participate. So please either come to worship or send in your photos, PROMINENTLY FEATURING your tools, your wrenches, your briefcases, your stethoscopes, your diaper bags—anything that symbolizes the ways in which you spend your days working and serving others —so that you may receive a special blessing, too!
