BLESSING of the BACKPACKS MILESTONE
Sunday, 8/13/17 @ 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
North Scottsdale United Methodist Church would like to send children back to school with a blessing and a backpack tag.
All children are invited to bring their backpack to church on Sunday August 13th, 2017 so both they and their backpacks can be blessed at both our 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. worship service.
These backpacks are our children’s constant companions as they go about their school days, so the pastors of NSUMC would like to bless them. After the blessing, they will give each child a tag to put on their backpack to remind them that God is with them in their daily life and that their church family will be praying for them throughout the year.
Don't have any students at home? All are invited to be a blessing to other less fortunate children by purchasing a NEW backpack and bringing it to the church that Sunday. These new backpacks will be distributed to Vista del Camino Recreational Center in south Scottsdale.
Thank you to our congregation for donating 90 backpacks PLUS supplies! Vista del Camino was short that exact amount so you were able to fulfill all of their wishes! All of the Vista del Camino students in need were able to get a backpack! Yay, God!
