Blessing of the Backpacks

08/13/2023 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


North Scottsdale United Methodist Church is celebrating the milestone of a new school year with a blessing and mission project. NSUMC will be offering blessings on students, educators, their mobile devices and backpacks during their worship service on Sunday, Aug. 13th @ 10:00 AM! The Back-to-School Supply Drive will include collecting school supplies for children that will be donated to the Vista del Camino Community Center in south Scottsdale. This event is free and open to the public.

FREE backpack tags will be handed out to all students in attendance on Sunday, Aug. 13th @ 10:00 AM. The backpack tag is constant reminder that God is with the students in their daily life and that their church family will be praying for them throughout the year.

Don’t have any students at home? All are invited to be a blessing to other less fortunate children by donating backpacks and school supplies. The gifts will be blessed and distributed to Vista del Camino Community Center to help families that need extra support at the beginning of the school year. Vista del Camino is a recreational facility in south Scottsdale that offers after-school care, clothing, food and financial support to less fortunate children. Julia Bautista, Director of Special Programs @ VdCCC stated, “We look forward to the NSUMC Back-to-School Supply drive. While the city of Scottsdale had huge success helping over 800 students in July, we still have requests to fill.”
