Blessing of Animals

Each October, we Bless our Animals

The Blessing of Animals is an annual event for FPC. Anyone in the community is welcome, and all types of pets and animals are welcome too.  Just be sure they are in carriers or on leashes, and must be current on their vaccinations.

Prior to the Blessing we will also have the Blessing of Stuffed Animals for the young children.  Have your children bring their beloved stuffed animals to church, show them around, and get blessed!

Each year we also include a Service of Remembrance for pets who have died after the Blessing Service for current pets.

Treats are provided for pets and their people. Every pet receives a signed certificate, suitable for framing.

Pet owners, vendors, veterinarians, and pet-friendly organizations are welcome. Contact Jamie Slade (Blessing of Animals Coordinator) or Pastor Matt by filling out the form below if you are interested in volunteering, or interested in having a table at our Blessing of Animals.
