Blessing of Teachers and Students

Blessing of Teachers and Students
Sunday, August 14
11 a.m. Worship

On Sunday, August 14, we are celebrating Promotion Sunday for our youth and children. As always, children and youth will move into new classes based on their age or year in school. This morning will be especially important for them as they get to know their new teachers!

Again this year, we will also honor Promotion Sunday by blessing teachers and students from within our congregation and community during worship. We hope this will be a meaningful time of prayer and encouragement, as we lift up those among us who will spend the next 10 months learning, teaching, and investing in the lives of the youngest members of our community. 

We hope that you will make an extra effort to be present on August 14 to offer up prayers and words of affirmation. We have invited teachers and students from around the community to come and hope to see many new faces in our midst. Please be there to offer true Broadway hospitality!

This school year, the ministry staff is facilitating a churchwide focus on blessing, and the Blessing of Teachers and Students will kickoff that focus in a meaningful and tangible way. We encourage you to invite teachers and students that you know so that we can extend the blessings we offer as a congregation further.

We intentionally planned for this Sunday to take place the Sunday after school (JCPS) starts to allow more time for students and teachers alike to invite others to come. We also hope this will tie-in well with the kickoff of our Fall schedule, as well as the Ministry Fair on August 21. As you greet new people, please be sure to invite them back for Wednesday night and the Ministry Fair.
