Back-to-School Blessing

August 19, 2014

Several churches in the Mediapolis school district sponsored a back-to-school blessing last Sunday. Children, teachers, administrators, and their families were invited to a 5 p.m. potluck dinner in Cartwright Park with drinks furnished by the sponsoring congregations.

Children were invited to bring their school bags, and participants gathered around them to offer a blessing for the new school year. The pastors from each church in turn offered prayers for the many leaders, volunteers, and families who are part of the school system.

Although it was an ecumenical affair, the Kingston, Sperry, and Mediapolis United Methodist churches were among the sponsoring congregations for the event. The formal gathering lasted just over an hour, including both the meal and the prayer time. Many families lingered in the park, though, to visit together as the children played.
