At this beloved annual intergenerational service, you are invited to bring a small vial of water from your home or travels to kick-off our church year with clear vision and ready hearts. We’ll join them all together, uniting as one to begin this new, shared church year. We will also offer a “backpack blessing” for our children and youth, to pledge our love and support to them as they begin a new school year—and as we all commit to the work of our lives, be it in our homes or out in the world. Kids (and adults!): bring your backpack (or briefcase, diaper bag, purse, etc…).
