Backpack Sunday! August 24
Dr. Ehrhardt’s sermon:
What’s In YOUR Backpack? (Heb. 12:1-3). Students of all ages, bring your backpacks or lunch boxes. You will be lifted up and dedicated to God’s glory as we begin the new school year and
receive a backpack tag as a reminder of the support that follows you from WDMCC. Teachers, aides, principals, bus drivers, cooks, administrators, secretaries, librarians, and janitors—come to be blessed, affirmed in your vocation, and encouraged as you serve children and families in your daily work!
