The new school year is a chance for children to make new friends, learn with new teachers and grow in their education, responsibility and personal leadership. Many children and youth are nervous – new schools, faces and routines can be difficult to accept. We urge you to pray with your children as they have these new experiences – leave them a note in their lunch and give them an extra hug at the door. Tell them they are never alone, Jesus is always standing by their side and you are always thinking about their day.
We invite children and youth to bring their backpacks to the 8:30 am and 11 am services this Sunday. We will bless and send them off to a great new year!
