Rally Day/ The Blessing of the Backpacks (and Briefcases and Tote Bags...)

Welcome home to Union Presbyterian Church!

On the second Sunday in September we remind ourselves who we are, and whose we are, and the words of the Psalm guide us:

O Lord, you have searched me and known me. .. ~ Psalm 139:1

Reminded that we are held in the love of God, we are also reminded that God is with us throughout all our days and in all ways. We bless the backpacks and briefcases and tote bags in which we carry our work, another reminder of God’s constant presence. Then, we gather around the table for the communion meal that reminds us again.

All these reminders: God loves us! God is with us! You are invited!
