Blessing of the Backpacks

  • Highlands United Methodist Church 1045 20th Street South Birmingham, AL, 35205 United States (map)

Join us on Sunday, August 13 for our annual back-to-school tradition!  All students may bring their backpacks to worship for a moment of blessing and prayer for another great school year.  Teachers and childcare givers are invited to take part as well. 

This year, families are encouraged to fill their backpacks with donation items for the UAB Student Food and Supply Pantry. Suggested donations include cereal, oatmeal/grits, canned fruit/meats, mac and cheese, pasta and sauce, juice, snacks, hygiene items, college-rule paper, index cards, pens, pencils, and highlighters.
