Blessing of the Animals and Pet Walk
On Saturday, September 25th we are hosting a Blessing of the Animals and Pet Walk. The youth adopted the Elizabethon/Carter County Animal Shelter and they are hosting this event to raise funds and awareness.
From 2 - 4 p.m. we will hold a pet blessing for anyone. Bring your pets to church and we'll give 'em that old time religion! Or we'll just admire them and pet them (if appropriate) and celebrate our four-legged and winged friends.
We are also having a pet walk. You can get sponsors for how ever many laps you make around the block walking your dog or your cat or your pet turtle. Proceeds will go to the Carter County Animal Shelter building project. You can make a donation here.
The pet walk will start at three p.m.
We will also have a table for those who work with pets (veterinarians, groomers, pet sitters, etc.) Bring a card or brochure. Of course bring your pet. It will be a nice afternoon.
It has been about three years since the last pet blessing, so those pets are due for some Jesus.
