Back to School Blessings

 “I can do all this through Him who gives me strength.”

This past year, back-to-school in the time of COVID-19 has looked very different.

Teachers brought their classrooms home with them; students learned through their screens on platforms like Zoom, WebEx, and Google Classroom. It was a time of innovation and change, of patience and increased understanding of what it means to "be together".

This year, as people of all ages head back to school,
St. Matthews and our wonderful community that has come together through the unprecedented hardships of this year are fortunate to be able to gather for worship and offer up prayers for those who begin another year of school, whether in person or online.

We invite you to join us in the blessing of all bags, backpacks, briefcases and devices, and to help us encourage students and teachers alike to go forth with strength and courage into the new school year.

To get involved throughout the year during this school year and beyond, check out our events page.

We thank you for helping us make ministries like this possible! If you feel called to give, you can do so safely, securely, and easily online here.
