A Bible for every child to call his or her own. The Martini Lutheran Sunday School is starting a new program. On Apirl 14th we gave every one of our regularly attending Sunday School children their own Bible: 15 children with their own Bibles and 3 children Bible Story books! We also gave them a brightly colored cloth carrying bag. We told them to bring their own Bible to Sunday School every week. They will use their Bible in the classroom and take it home with them after class. Kindergarteners will received a story book they can read with their family. When they graduate to the 1st grade, they will receive their Bible. Obviously as new children join the Sunday School, they also will receive their own Bible after a brief attendance requirement is met.
This is new for us. We believe this will help children grow into reading God’s Word on their own. We also saw parently looking at these Bibles. Will this turn into a new Family Time advanture? Stay tuned….
