Keep your eyes open as the back-to-school sales are in full swing. Thank you for any items you can contribute.

A Prayer for Students and Teachers
Lord God, your Spirit of wisdom fills the earth and teaches us your ways. Look upon all students as they begin a new school year. Let them enjoy their learning and take delight in new discoveries. Help them to persevere in their studies and give them the desire to learn all things well. Look upon the teachers. Let them strive to share their knowledge with gentle patience and endeavor always to bring the truth to eager minds. Grant that students and teachers alike may follow Jesus Christ, the way, the truth, and the life, for ever and ever. Amen.
