Challenging circumstances remind us just how dependent we are on the bestowment of blessings. It’s when we reach the other side, that we know we’ve arrived through faith, prayer and, yes, being blessed!
A few years ago, our growing community wanted to include families, youth, industries and businesses in addition to the annual Blessing of the Destin Fishing Fleet; thus an expansion into a “week of blessings” which includes the Blessing of the Marketplace.
Despite COVID-19, the annual Blessing of the Marketplace will take place on May 20, from 7:30 – 9 a.m., but different than in past years; it will be hosted as “drive through blessing” events at three different church locations based on industry type.
