The Blessing of the Pets

The Blessing of the Pets

Sunday, October 12 at 6:00 p.m.

All of you pet lovers know that pets bring life, love, and companionship into our homes on a daily basis. They are a part of our families and a special gift from God. Whether the pet is a dog, cat, bird, or pot bellied pig, they give much more love than they receive. Pets have a special place in our hearts and love us unconditionally.
 
On Sunday evening, October 12, our church will celebrate our pets by blessing them as a part of God’s creation. We will gather in the courtyard for the service of blessing and then each pet will receive an individual blessing and a treat for being so well behaved.
 
Please have your pet caged or on a leash and join us for the second Sunday service as we bless our pets and give thanks for all of God’s creation.
