ANIMAL BLESSING IN THE PLAZA – 10:30 AM
We are offering an animal blessing in the plaza during worship service. We invite you to join us for a special time of worship and loving care for the animals that give us so much joy in our lives, both present, in our hearts, and found in our treasured memories. Let’s not forget those well-traveled fuzzy stuffed friends that get hauled around wherever we go…we’ll bless them, too.
NO SUNDAY SCHOOL
Sunday School classes will not meet this day, as children will worship with their families and participate in the service reading animal prayers.
Sunday School classes will resume the following week. Please check back again for specific details and instructions as the date gets closer.
BRING A PET, A PHOTO OF A PET OR A STUFFED ANIMAL FOR A BLESSING
If you would like to have your pet blessed be sure to bring them with you on Sunday. Please make sure they feel secure. Keep them on a leash, in a cage, or an enclosure of choice, as we want to make sure all creatures large and small are welcome. There will be water available, and both cat and dog kibble as an added treat!
Nursery Care will be available by Tina for infants and children up to 4 years of age. The nursery is located in the Educational Building, see Directions and Campus Map for guidance.
