3rd Grade Bible Presentation & Lunch (Milestone #4)

Sunday, September 16
Presenting Bibles to 3rd Graders is a long-standing tradition in the United Methodist Church.  When we present them with this Bible in worship, it is a continuation of the lifelong faith journey that began at their baptism. We encourage children to bring their Bible to Sunday School so that they can dive into God's Word on their own, both during class and at home.

3rd Grade Bible Blast

Sundays, September 23 – October 14
A part of the 3rd Grade Bible presentation is our Bible Blast class. This is a 3-week long class that will teach children what exactly is in their Bible,  how to use their Bible, and how to apply all of this knowledge to live as a disciple of Jesus.  This year, we will be encouraging 3rd Graders to attend both the presentation/family lunch, as well as the 3-week bible class.
