Blessing of the Animals
June 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Bring your pets and join us for a blessing of the animals on Sunday, June 11 at 2:00 p.m., under the front porch at First Baptist!
St. Francis loved all of God’s creatures and followed God’s example of kindness, mercy, compassion, and love for all of creation. We are discovering more and more the benefits of pets in our lives and society so blessing them at church is not just a fun thing to do, it is acknowledging their importance both to us and to God.
Just a few things to keep in mind:
- Friendly and well-behaved animals are welcome in “person.” For those who become nervous or aggressive, or who simply cannot make it to the event, they can be represented by photos, etc.
- Animals must be under control and suitably restrained. (No choke chain nor slip collars, please.)
- Animals must have identification in the event of an escape. (Better to be safe and prepared!)
