Sunday, August 18
They are going back! Throughout Central Georgia students are heading back to the classroom, and we want to honor and bless our students as they mark this new beginning.
Sunday, August 18, is Promotion Sunday for our church. On this day, our students will begin the morning in their current Sunday School classes, and then at 10:30 a.m. we will promote those who are going into new classes and departments.
A highlight of this day will take place in worship when we present our first graders and seventh graders with a new Bible. Children and Youth in this age group are taking giant steps into new ministry areas of our church. We like to mark this occasion with the gift of a new Bible from our congregation.
Our worship on this Sunday will also include a Blessing of Students. Preschoolers, children, and youth are encouraged to bring their backpacks to worship for a time of individual blessing and to receive a gift to carry with them throughout the school year.
