Every year about this time at the Laurel United Methodist Church, we pick a Sunday and declare it to be: Bible Sunday! On this Sunday our latest batch of 3rd Graders in the church receive a copy of the Holy Bible as a gift from the church to them. It is an exciting time in their faith journey as they are recognized to becoming an age where they can truly begin exploring all the wonder that the Bible has to offer. It is our hope that this will be a step forward in their faith journey that will bring them not only answers, but questions to explore and discuss. One could say this giving of the Bible is laying the foundation as they move forward to becoming of age to go through Confirmation classes and make that statement of faith.
What a wondrous and amazing time! This year I expect two third graders to receive Bibles, though I'm praying it will be three. Join us on Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013 as we gift this year's 3rd graders with their very own Bible; we hope to see all of our Sunday School families and a multitude of welcoming faces packing the pews for this latest moment in their faith journey. They will be receiving their Bibles during the 10:15am worship service, we hope to see you there!
