Back to School Prays


Children, Youth, and Adults who are about to head back to school (however that may look) ---you are loved and prayed for by your church!
On Sunday, August 23, we would like to offer a moment of blessing, support, and encouragement for the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year. If you would like to be included in our Back to School Prays Slide Show, please send a picture of yourself with your backpack or device (those attending online school) to The deadline to send in pictures is August 14th. It is also a tradition at SFUMC that we hand out clothes pins which contain the name and grade of a child. The idea is that members of the congregation will receive a clothes pin and pray over that child throughout the school year. The clothes pins will be available for pickup outside the church office during the week of August 17th. In normal times, it's a big adjustment to begin a new school year. We all know that we are no longer in "normal" times, so  what a blessing it will be to know that these precious children will be prayed for by name during these uncertain times.
