As county and private schools fall back into the swing of the new school year, so does Church Street. From moving up to the next Sunday School class to preparing our hearts and minds through song and prayer, the school year is officially underway.
On August 11, children gathered at the altar with their backpacks to receive a special blessing for the school year. Children and youth met their new Sunday School teachers who will shepherd them through the year in their Christian education. After worship, our children’s choirs kicked off their rehearsals for the year.
Upcoming Activities for Children, Youth, and Families:
August 17-18 – Parish Youth Choir Retreat
August 18 – Back-to-School Family Prayer Time (4pm, Nave)
August 25 – Youth back-to-school party at 5pm in the Gym
