Bless Teachers in the Neighborhood

Dear Glen Mar friends,

I've been in prayer for our educators and students as the start of a new school year approaches, and I'm really enjoying our August Family Worship Series, God's Neighborhood: Jesus, Mr. Rogers, and Me. Join us if you are in town!

As we get ready for the start of school, I wanted to ask that you join me in prayer for kids and teachers and especially for those schools in our circle of ministry and in our neighborhood. We believe that we are blessed to be a blessing, and we want especially to reach out to the schools around us to be a good neighbor, in Jesus' name.

We're asking folks to donate to our "Blessing Basket for Teachers," as they leave the Spirit Center this weekend. We'll take the funds and go shopping for things teachers need and would be blessed by: markers, pens, sanitizer, stickers, etc. On the weekend of 8/25, we'll assemble the "blessing bags" and get them delivered to Veteran's Elementary School, right here on Montgomery Road. We'll include a little note sharing our support and prayers and perhaps inviting them to come see us for worship sometime.

Won't you help us bless our teacher and student neighbors? And...mark your calendar for Labor Day Weekend's Blessing of the Backpacks. Bring your student or your teacher to worship for prayer to get the year started off right.

See you in Church,
Pastor Mandy
