Tabernash church to conduct ‘Blessing of the Backpacks’
TABERNASH – The Church of Eternal Hills invites all students to bring their backpacks with them on Sunday, Sept. 6, for Blessings of the Backpacks.
The beginning of the school year can be a stressful time for students and parents alike. The goal of this service is to ease anxiety, remind students that they are not alone in their studies, and help kick the school year off to a great start.
During the service, Pastor Paula will invite students to bring their backpacks to the front so that they can be blessed for the upcoming school year. Using her engaging and loving nature, Pastor Paula will discuss possible worries students might have and offer advice to help relieve stress and fear.
You don’t have to be a member of the Church of Eternal Hills to attend this or any service or church event. The Church of Eternal Hills is an open congregation, happy to have anyone join their congregation for a day or a lifetime.
Middle and high school students are invited every Thursday evening for dinner, fellowship, worship, and youth group. This is an energetic program focused on service, learning, fun, and developing friendships with each other as well as with God. It’s not uncommon to find the church bursting at the seams with laughter and music. Older students participate in lock-ins, service projects, a chapel rock band, and are designing a labyrinth and prayer walk for the community to enjoy.
The Church of the Eternal Hills strives to bring people together in order to build a strong and supportive community. All in search of acceptance, a space to meditate, a community, or to further develop their relationship with God, are encouraged to come for a day or for a lifetime. The church is located off of US 40 in Tabernash.
