Blessing of the Backpacks & Back to Church Sunday

September 16 @ 10:00 am

Free

The Hopewell United Methodist Church invites all kids and their families and caregivers to join us as we kick off the fall season on Sunday, September 16, with our Back to Church Sunday.

We will hold a special “Blessing of the Backpacks” during the 10 a.m. worship service and children attending with their backpacks will receive a blessing. All children are then invited to join our first week of Children’s Sunday school, which meets during the 10 a.m. worship time.

The “Blessing of the Backpacks” will include a special blessing over art supplies collected as a special mission outreach project for a program serving unaccompanied minor children at the Center for Family Services in Burlington. The United Methodist Women have been coordinating the collection of crayons, markers, paper and more! More info on art supplies collection here.

Sunday Sundaes

Following the service, we will enjoy “Sunday Sundaes” with an ice cream and toppings bar. We will have games and activities for children of all ages! If weather permits, we will be outside on the church lawn. If not, we will be inside the Sunroom!

Meet our New Pastor

Rev. Laura Steele, who joined us in July as our new senior pastor, will focus on “Creation” as a worship theme for September. Previously, Pastor Laura served at Bridgewater UMC, East Millstone UMC and Mt. Zion UMC’s in New Jersey and Del Ray United Methodist Church in Alexandria, VA.
