Back to Church Sunday
Back To Church Sunday
It is that time of the year again. Back to School commercials are flooding the airwaves, the days are getting shorter and yes, snow will eventually be on its way.
As summer comes to an end, cottages are closed and vacations are sadly over, we are reminded that the new church year is just around the corner. Which of course means that Back To Church Sunday is also upon us.
This year we will be celebrating Back To Church Sunday on September 17th with a welcome back BBQ on the front lawn of the church and also the blessing of the backpacks. Yet, as we come back to church to see old friends and renew our commitment to God we need to be conscious to invite others to join us.
I would, therefore, encourage you to not only be present on September 17th but to also invite family, children, grandchildren, and friends to join you that Sunday as we kick off another exciting church year at All Saints.
Children and all those involved in the education of our children are welcome to bring their backpacks or briefcases to the church that Sunday as well. They will be placed around the altar, prayed over and blessed. Each person will receive a token to remind him or her that God goes with him or her to school and is with them each and every day.
I look forward to seeing everyone back at church and another exciting and Christ filled year!
