CRESTVIEW — The Okaloosa School District's 2014-15 academic year begins Aug. 18. But before North Okaloosa students feed their minds, a local church invites them to feed their souls.
Crestview First United Methodist Church's Aug. 17 Back to School Round-up will allow students to reflect on and celebrate the upcoming school year. Children may bring their backpacks for a time of prayer over the backpacks and to honor all school employees.
Services are at 8:30 a.m. (traditional), 9:45 a.m. (contemporary) and 11 a.m. (traditional) at 599 Eighth Ave., Crestview.
A free hotdog lunch will follow the last service. There also will be bounce houses, crafts and games for the children.
