Blessing of the Backpacks!

Centre Grove will conduct a special “Blessing of the Backpacks” service on Sunday, August 26, 2012 at 10:15 a.m.

All school aged children and adults who work in schools are invited to bring their backpacks, totes, and/or briefcases to church. During the worship service, a blessing will be given for the students/adults and their bags to help ensure everyone will have a safe and successful school year!

Do you need a backpack or school supplies?
Anyone who needs a backpack or school supplies is invited to contact the church office at 765-6031 by Friday, August 24, at noon. Please let us know your name, phone number, how many backpacks are needed, boy or girl, age of student, and if school supplies are needed.

Breakfast at 9:30 a.m.!
Everyone participating in the Blessing of the Backpacks service is also invited to a light breakfast at 9:30 a.m. in the downstairs Fellowship Hall (enter through parking lot entrance). All backpacks and school supplies requested will be distributed at that time. After breakfast, we will go to the sanctuary for the blessing service at 10:15 a.m.

We hope you will join us and take advantage of this opportunity for us to bless your children and adults school workers at the outset of the school year!
