First United Methodist Grapevine tweens are hosting a pet blessing on Sunday. It will be held in the tent on the pumpkin patch property at 455 Ball St. at 1:30 p.m. The Pet Blessing Service, led by pastors Jenn Pick and Grant Palma will be followed by individual blessings for each pet with the help of the tweens. There will be pet treats and refreshments for pet owners available. The event is free and open to all in the community. Event organizers recommend owners bring their pets in a crate or on a leash to be blessed and will also accept donations of new, unopened pet food, treats and toys to be given to local pets in need.
