Faith Formation at Home

Back to School Prayers

Every year, our church does a blessing of the backpacks during a Sunday morning worship service before school begins. This year, since times are so different and our needs are various, we are doing things a little differently.

We hope that your family will benefit from sharing these “Back to School” prayers and choose the ones that work for you. Use them on the first day of school, when you attach your tag to your backpack or your sticker to your device or water bottle, or at the beginning of each school day to remind yourself that God is with you.

Finding God in Everything

Whether you are traveling or enjoying a summer at home, we invite your family to join us on a journey to find God in everyday, extraordinary life. Each week we encourage you to take photos, draw pictures, create crafts and share how your family is #FindingGodAtUnity. Submit your photos via Facebook or email them to Kathryn McGregor.
