Makawao Union Church will hold its annual Blessing of the Backpacks this Sunday, July 31 during the 10:30 am worship. The Blessing of the Backpacks marks the beginning of the new school year and reminds our children and youth that they continue their journey in education with God’s care and our support. Be sure to bring your backpack or book bag! We will also recognize our teachers, honoring their ministry in educating our young people. All are welcome to attend.
