Blessing of the Animals Weekend


Nativity will be offering a Blessing of the Animals on Saturday, Oct. 1st, and a special Time with Children on Sunday, Oct. 2nd.

Join us Saturday, October 1st, for our annual Blessing of the Animals, when we take time to bless the beloved animal companions in our lives. We invite you to bring your pets to church after the Saturday 5:30 pm worship. Stuffies and pet photos are also welcome for the blessing! We’ll gather in the Sanctuary for a short message, singing, and animal blessings. The community is also invited to send in pictures of their dogs to be shown during a special song, “God and Dog.” Photos can be emailed to Bob Parrott at

On Sunday morning, Oct. 2, we’ll be devoting Time with Children to the blessing theme. Children are invited to bring their stuffies and/or pictures of their pets. Parents can also come forward with their children and bring their phones with pictures of their pets for a thanksgiving and blessing.
