Blessing of the Backpacks



                 Backing up kids and educators is not a once-in-a-lifetime job.Sunday, August 5th, 2012, was Backpack Sunday sponsored by Sierra Evangelical Lutheran Church, a congregation that has been presenting students hundreds of backpacks for the last nine years.  This year’s worship services were at 8:00 and 10:30 a.m with brekfast and games from 9:15-10:30 a.m.  Students brought their own backpacks to the worship service to receive a special blessing.  Educators also attend as they prepared to go back to the classrooms.  215 backpacks filled with school supplies were given to the local schools that identify children in need.   Games included tricycle races, a scavenger hunt, board games, hula hoop contest, face painting, and more.
