Blessing of the Backpacks

Blessing of the Backpacks

This Sunday, Aug. 3rd, at Daisy and Hagan United Methodist we are asking for all children and youth to bring their book bags to church. We will have a special moment in the service for the children and teachers to come down. There will be a moment of prayer for the upcoming school year and a blessing of the backpacks. We will also have a small Jesus fish to clip on the backpack.

We did this a couple of years ago and it was really meaningful. What are some other ways we can celebrate the start of the school year and support our students and teachers?

Here is a link to a United Methodist resource about the blessing of the backpacks.
