2014 Blessing of the Backpacks

Join us during worship on August 31 for a special Blessing of the Backpacks!  We’ll take time during the service to recognize students, teachers, administrators, and others involved in our educational system–both religious and municipal–and bless them in preparation for a great school year!

Just a heads-up that Pastor Chris will be on vacation from May 26 through June 8.  Any pastoral care matters will be covered by the pastors from Edmonds Lutheran Church and Bethesda Lutheran Church, so rest assured that we’re in good hands!
