All ages – Preschool through College and Teachers!
Another fall is approaching. It is a time for students and teachers to return to the classroom and for fall schedules to resume. First English Lutheran Church will recognize the start of the school year and offer prayers for encouragement to the excited and comfort to the anxious. Blessing of the Backpacks will be held Sunday, September 4th during the 9:00 a.m. worship. Students – bring your backpack or school bag and feel free to invite a friend!
Also, to help provide for students who may not have a backpack, those who wish may donate backpacks to church by bringing them to the church office. We will display and make available at church. Any which aren’t picked up will be delivered to the schools to distribute to those who need them. If you prefer, you may make a financial contribution (labeled “backpacks”).
Church worship services are shown on local
