Join us for a special multigenerational “Blessing of the Backpacks” and worship service on Sunday, August 29 at 10:30am. Children and youth are encouraged to wear their school backpacks to church, so that we can include them in the Backpack Blessing. The service will offer children, youth, and adults of all ages the opportunity to have their backpacks, briefcases, laptops, etc. blessed during our regular Sunday service.

If you are able, please bring a backpack and school supplies to donate. See the DCPS school supply list for ideas. We are also taking donations to help defray the cost of school meals. A donation of $66 will cover lunch for one child for one month. A donation of any amount is welcome. Click on the image below to donate.

Checks may be made payable to St. Thomas’ and may be placed in the collection plate or mailed to church address.
