Happy first day of school! This past weekend we had a great start to the school year with our annual Backpack Blessing at the end of worship which included blessings for students, teachers and all support staff in our school system. See the attached picture where everyone was saying “Let your light shine!” That’s a lot of Light shining into our schools this week!
With school beginning our Pastor Shelly is also back from vacation. It will be good for us all to be back together again!
This time of year also means that there are only 2 more weekends where we are in our summer schedule. Labor Day weekend is the last weekend of worship on Saturday at 6pm and Sunday at 9:30am. Beginning the weekend of September 6-7 we resume our regular schedule with worship on Saturday at 6pm and Sunday at 8:30 and 11am.
That weekend we join other ELCA congregations around the country for a “God’s Work; Our Hands” weekend. This year we are gathering supplies to bring to the 12 fire houses in our county as a way of thanking and serving those who serve others. More to come on that as we get closer. Sunday School begins Sunday September 14.
