Join us for a heartwarming celebration of the Blessing of the Animals at Memorial United Methodist Church. On Sunday, October 1st, at 3:00 pm, we'll gather in the church's parking lot to honor our furry, feathered, and scaly companions. This cherished annual event is a testament to the deep bond between humans and the creatures that share our lives. It's a time to express gratitude for the joy, companionship, and comfort our pets provide us, as well as an opportunity to seek blessings for their health and well-being.
As we come together in the spirit of unity and love, our faith community embraces all creatures, great and small, recognizing the beauty and sacredness of God's creations. In case of rain, this event will be held in the hallway at the Tree of Life, ensuring that our celebration remains a heartwarming and inclusive experience for all. Join us for a meaningful and memorable service that celebrates the precious gift of animals in our lives.
