Pet blessing service

SHEFFIELD — A pet blessing worship service will be followed by a dessert potluck at 3 p.m. Oct. 6 at the Homecoming Park in Sheffield. The service is being sponsored by Sheffield ministers Pastor Todd Krost from the United Methodist Church and the Rev. Jane Courtright from the First United Church of Christ.

This will be a time of celebration of creation, pet blessings and remembering pets who have died. The offering collected will be donated to local humane society and shelters. Those interested in going should bring a lawn chair or blankets, a dessert to share and their pets.
