At the start of each new school year, Church of the Saviour invites all students to bring their backpacks with them to worship for a blessing of the backpacks. This year, on August 18, we will offer a special time of prayer during worship to offer encouragement to excited students, offer comfort to anxious students, and to remind all students that God's love and the support of the congregation will be with them through the coming school year.
On that same day, we are collecting school supplies to help the teachers in our congregation who work in Cleveland and East Cleveland. Suggested supplies include: #2 pencils, lined notebook paper, rulers, crayons,1.5 inch three-ring binders, glue sticks, spiral notebooks, pocket folders, #20 weight copy paper, and composition books. You may also write a check, payable to Church of the Saviour, with "school supplies" in the memo line, and we will do the shopping. Please bring the school supplies to room 122 by Sunday, August 18. Thank you!
