Animal Blessing Service – October 4th

YOU’RE INVITED

Our Family Ministry Director, Sue Beckham, extends a warm invitation to everyone to join us for our annual Animal Blessing Service.

DATE & TIMES

October 4, 2015 at both the 8:00 AM and 10:30 AM services.

CELEBRATING OUR PETS

A “Cake and Kibble” Reception will be held on the plaza following the 10:30 AM service. Water and kibble will be available at both services.

Be sure to bring pets on a leash or in a carrier, cage or bowl. Bring all your furry, fluffy, smooth or scaly critters with you to sit in the pew. They will prance or bound or crawl or creep to the Altar to be blessed and join you for Communion too. We will be blessing pets, stuffed animals of every hue, and photos of pets brought by you.

Animal cut outs will be provided on which to write the name of pets who cannot join us on that day. There will also be a Memorial Poster on which to write the names of those very special pets who are no longer with us except in our hearts and memories.

QUESTIONS?

If you have any questions please Contact Sue.
