Dear Glen Mar friends,

It's Back-To-School time again! I hope you'll join us in worship for a special time of blessing and prayer for students, teachers and administrators. Bring backpacks, grade books, teacher bags, "loveys" etc. for our Blessing of the Backpacks during worship! We'll also celebrate Labor Day with a message on Holy Work (and I'll put on a cardigan one more time as we conclude our series, God's Neighborhood: Jesus, Mr. Rogers and Me).

One of the things I love about being a Methodist is that we believe that God has given us the gift of intellect so that we can use it to encounter God, along with all the other gifts God gives us. We are always called to be growing in our love and knowledge of God. In that sense, it's Back to School time for all of us! I wanted to encourage you to sign up to be a part of a small group this fall as we start a church-wide Bible study called Covenant: Come to the Table. May this fall be a time of growth and learning for all of us, as we draw closer to Jesus and to each other.

See you in Church!
Pastor Mandy
