As the summer comes to an end and children head back to school, churches across the country are preparing for their annual “Back To School” Sunday School lessons and Bible teaching activities. These special lessons are designed to help children transition back into a routine of attending church and learning about God’s Word. In addition to Bible story time, many churches also offer crafts, games, and other activities that help make the experience fun and memorable. For parents, these “Back To School” Sunday School lessons provide an opportunity to instill important values in their children at a time when they may be feeling anxious or stressed about the upcoming school year. By participating in these church-sponsored activities, families can come together and start the new year off on the right foot, grounded in faith.

Back To School Bask & Blessing Backpack Ideas for Churches
Fall is a busy time of year for families as they prepare to send their children back to school. As a church, there are many ways that you can support families during this transition. One idea is to hold a “Back to School” event, where families can come to pick up supplies like notebooks, pencils, and backpacks. You can also provide information about resources like free or reduced-priced lunches and after-school programs. Another idea is to hold a “Meet the Teacher” night, where parents can meet their child’s teacher and tour the classroom. This is a great opportunity to connect with families and let them know that your church is here to support them. Whatever events you decide to hold, make sure that you advertise them well in advance so that families can plan to attend.
