Blessing of the Animals
All creatures great and small are invited to participate in this service of worship celebrating all living things in God’s good creation. Fur, feathers, scales, and fins are welcome! Your pet will receive a special blessing as we give thanks to God for the gift they are to our lives. If your pet is unable to travel, feel free to bring a photo, their collar, or other memento.
Each year, certain Sunday Church Services are led by members of our Music Ministry, Children’s Ministry, Youth Ministry, Boy Scouts, and Girl Scouts. These services allow the aforementioned participants an opportunity to contribute to Saint Luke’s Presbyterian Church Worship Experience.
