Reformation & Bible SundayBack to Events List
- October 29, 2017
- 8:15 am to 12:30 pm
Joing us as we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation by presenting children, grades 1st-3rd, with Bibles and fellowship together.
Presenting Bibles to our 3rd graders is a long time beloved tradition. It’s a very special moment in the life of our church as we all come together and encourage our young believers to read for themselves the story of God’s love for us. As a community we are given the opportunity to act on the promise we make at infant baptism to welcome children into the family of Christ followers.
We plan to continue this tradition but with a bit of an update. There was a time when children were considered strong readers by 3rd grade. Children are now learning to read at younger ages and are ready to have their own Bible by 1st grade. For the future we are going to change 3rd Grade Bible Presentation Sunday to 1st Grade Bible Presentation Sunday. However, we need a “catch up” year so that no one will be left out!
