Summer Festival and the Blessing of the Backpacks
Immediately after our worship service UTUUC will join our hosts at United Lutheran on the grass behind the church for their annual summer festival that includes a "blessing of the backpacks," at 1 p.m. as well as a blessing for students and teachers. Kids: bring your backpacks! A picnic lunch will be served. Rev. Emily and Rev. Alan will join Rev. Dennis from United Lutheran for the blessing.
This is a wonderful opportunity for our congregations to interact and mingle. Volunteers are requested from both congregations. Click on this link to view the list of needs: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080c4aafaf2ea31-summer.
Bring anyone you wish: the wider community is welcome to attend this gathering!
