Weddington UMC would like to send children and youth back to school with a bag tag and a blessing!  All children and youth are invited to bring their backpacks to church on Sunday, August 25 at one of our services so that their backpacks can be blessed. After the blessing, each child will receive a bag tag to put on their backpacks to remind them that God is with them in their daily life and that their church family will be praying for them throughout the school year.

Teachers and staff of schools (preschool, elementary, middle, and high school), please stand up so we can recognize you during the blessing – you deserve to be blessed too!

  • 8:15 a.m. service:  Children and youth will be asked to come to the front of the pulpit to receive your blessing. 
  • 9:30 a.m. service:  Children will gather in the hallway alongside Helms Hall and proceed into the Sanctuary at the start of the service to receive their blessing.
  • 10:10 service: Children will gather under the sound booth in the Family Life Center and proceed to the pulpit to receive their blessing.
  • 11:00 service: Children will gather in the hallway alongside Helms Hall and proceed into the Sanctuary at the start of the service to receive their blessing. 
Please join us at one of the services so we can start your child’s school year off right!
