Join us at First Presbyterian Church of Gardner on Saturday, October 1 at 4 p.m. for a blessing of the animals celebration. We will meet on the lawn (or in fellowship hall if weather requires a move.) Creatures of all kinds are welcome. Pictures may be brought for larger animals if you wish. Please bring animals on leashes, cages or otherwise contained. After a brief ceremony and prayer for all God’s creatures, individual animals and their families may receive a blessing with Pastor Kimby. Ice Cream will be available during fellowship time. Invite your friends and come along. This celebration is open to the community.
