You and your pets are invited to
All God’s Critters, A Blessing of the Animals Celebration
“In God’s hands is the life of every creature and the breath of all mankind.”
Job: 10 (NIV)
On Sunday, October 1, 2017, First Broad Street will again host All God’s Critters, a Blessing of the Animals Celebration, and you and your pet/s are invited!
From 2:00 to 2:45 p.m., our current and former ministers will bless both you and your pet/s. At 2:45, a brief service, led by Harrison Bell, will conclude the celebration. The event will take place on the lawn between the church building and E. Church Circle. The streets surrounding the church will be closed to traffic, but FBS parking lots will be accessible.
All God’s critters, large and small, are welcome. Dogs should be on their leashes, cats in carriers, and other animals contained as appropriate. Stuffed animals, a photograph of a pet, or an article belonging to a pet (such as a horse’s bridle or a cow’s bell) also may be blessed. What’s that you say? You don’t currently have a pet?—Come anyway and share in the excitement of wagging tails, contented purrs, and joyful tweeting.
Those who attend will have the opportunity to give back by donating spare change to Heifer International. Additionally, you and your pet may have your photo taken by one of our photographers, your pet will receive a goody bag and a kerchief, and you may win a door prize!
