Join us this coming Sunday, Aug. 28, at 9:30 a.m. for worship at Nativity Lutheran Church, 179 Old County Road, Rockport.

As part of the service we will have a Blessing of the Backpacks as youth and teachers prepare to return to school. We'll be sending them off with a blessing for a productive year of learning and personal growth, confident in the knowledge that God is always with them.

Contact the Church at 594-4665 with the names and grade levels of any students you will be bringing so we can have an appropriate surprise for back-to-school. Also, be sure to have your student bring his/her backpack.
