Community Backpack Blessing

“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”  Colossians 3: 17

Our Community Backpack Blessing is held the second week of August before school starts. During this experience, parents with their children & their school list will pick up a backpack and school supplies before receiving a school year blessing from the pastors. To be prepared for this Community Blessing, backpacks and school supplies are collected all year. Yes, we are already collecting for the next year! Donations of money are used to purchase supplies. Donated items can be delivered to the office at Shepherd of the Valley.
