It will be a joy and honor to present our 2019-2020 Third Graders with their very own Bible on Sunday, February 9! We invite all third graders and their families to be a part of this special event. Third Graders and their families will join us for a small reception in the 3rd-floor loft area where we will present a Bible to each student at 10:20am. Following the reception, students and their families are invited to the Celebration Center for the 10:45 a.m. service, during which students will be recognized with a special blessing and sermon by Pastor Nanette.
