As a new school year approaches we are mindful of the preparations being made by teachers, admin staff, parents and children and all the other support and maintenance staff. We ask blessings on them all. We are blessed to be involved in the lives of Mossend, Lawmuir and Bellshill Academy pupils and staff.
We give you our school.
We give you all the teachers and staff who work here,
We give you all the children who study here.
We pray our school would be place of great discovery, adventure and creativity.
May it be a place where we love to learn and where we learn to love,
A place where every one is respected and all are deeply valued.
We ask all this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Sunday 19th August at 11.00am in Bellshill Central we are having an informal Back to School Sunday. This will be an all age service, and the theme of the service is God speaking to us through the Bible.
We will offer prayers for the new school term and welcome parents, pupils, family members and school staff along.
Back to School Sundays aim to:
- raise awareness of prayer for schools in general and the need for prayer for local schools in particular;
- support and encourage Christian pupils and staff in their daily life at school, and as part of this, to let them know they are valued and prayed for by the local church;
- challenge Christian pupils and staff to live out their faith in the school environment, and in particular to support any Christian witness in their school.
Back to School with God Sunday church service is a fantastic way to pray for and support your young people and school staff at the start of a new school year.
It is an excellent bridge between church and school, and an encouragement to Christian pupils and staff to consider the fact that God is not confined to church, but goes with them to school.
