Step UP Sunday is a special day in our church as we celebrate a new year of learning and questing for knowledge. Because knowledge is so important, we want all of our students to start the year knowing the love of Leander UMC is with them.
During the 9:45 Sunday School hour we will have a brief ceremony on the front lawn of the church commemorating the children stepping up a grade in their Sunday school classes.
During the 11:00 service we will be giving all of our incoming 3rd grade students their Bibles as a gift and tool for them in their journey with God. We will also be celebrating all students in their quest for knowledge with our “Blessing of the Backpacks.” All students are invited to bring their backpacks to church to be blessed during worship. And, since we are all “students of faith”, we want to extend an invitation to all of our adults to also bring any of their bags to be blessed, a backpack, satchel, diaper bag, hand bag or whatever you use in your journey as a student of faith. Everyone will get a special tag to attach to their bags to commemorate the blessing.
