School can be fun, scary, awesome, and tough. Encourage kids with the promises of God and surround them with the love of their parents and caring adults as they prepare for a new school year by holding A Backpack Blessing Event.
The Backpack Blessings Event Kit has everything you need to hold an event. Our 2016 theme, “The Greatest Commandment is Love,” is taken from Matthew 22:37-39 and reminds children that Jesus commands us to love God and love one another.
The Blessing event takes about 10 minutes and is easy to include as part of your regular worship or Sunday school hour.
The Backpack Blessing Event Kit includes
- Backpack Blessing Event Litany
- Backpack Blessing Children’s Sermon
- 10 Backpack Tags to give to students during the event
- 10 Parent-Child Backpack Blessing Sheets (give one sheet to each family unit and encourage parents to use these cards throughout the year)
- CD-Rom with all materials including PowerPoint slides and tools to promote Backpack Blessings in your church or school
- Extra Backpack Tags and Parent-Child Backpack Blessing Sheets are available. Order Code BPF16
