Backpack Blessing & School Supplies Collection

For the next two weeks (August 20 & 27), we will be adding to our regular offering with school supplies. The next time you’re at Target, pick up some kid-safe scissors, a box of markers, or an extra box of Ziplock bags. If you’ve been saving paper or pencils for “someday,” it might be today!  Your generosity can change a child’s — or a whole classroom’s! — opportunity for success this year.

If you’re worrying about how to afford the school supplies your child needs, please see Pastor Emmy for how we can help.

As our own kids, teachers, and staff head back to school, we want them to know how supported and beloved they all are. On Sunday August 27, we invite all those headed back to school to bring in their bags of all shapes and sizes.  We’ll bless your backpacks and briefcases — and you! — and add a keychain to your zipper to remind you that God (and Grace Lutheran!) is with you in both sorrows and joys this school year.
