In just a few days, we’ll turn our calendars to August, and you know what that means—it’s back-to-school time!

Families and children have mixed emotions during this time of year, but whatever they are feeling, nurturing the families in our care is important. Back-to-school time can cause eager anticipation but also anxiety and even fearfulness, so many churches choose to hold an event that recognizes the start of the school year like a Backpack Blessing.

That’s why CTA created a four-page handout with quick-and-easy tips. The information is specially designed to help you care for the families in your ministry and community during back-to-school season. You’ll find suggestions for all ages of students (including college kids), prayers for parents to say, and Scripture suggestions.
