STEP UP SUNDAY
On Step Up Sunday we will 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. To celebrate them, we will have some events occurring that day.
During the 9:45 Sunday School hour, all the children’s Sunday school classes will meet in the Upper Room for a special kick-off to the school year and to commemorate the children stepping up a grade in their Sunday school classes. The Youth will present an entertaining puppet show and the children will be introduced to their Sunday school teachers. Each child will receive a special surprise which will help them remember what to build the coming year on. After a closing prayer, all the classes will go to their new classrooms for snacks and games.
BLESSING OF THE BACKPACKS
During the 11:00 am service, we will be celebrating all students with a “Blessing of the Backpacks.” All students are invited to bring their backpacks to be blessed for the upcoming school year. Backpack tags will be handed out to commemorate the blessing.
