Blessing of the Backpacks

West End UMC wants to surround children and families with prayer to offer encouragement to the excited and comfort to the anxious for the new school year. All students from Preschool to PhD. and educators are invited to join us on August 14 for our Back to School litany during both worship services. Bring your backpacks, bags, briefcases, or lunch boxes to the Communion rail when you come for worship. As a part of the Children's Moment, Pastor Michael will give thanks and offer a prayer for children, educators, administrators, counselors, etc. to show our support as a new school year begins.
