We stand alone…

…. on the WORD OF GOD….. the B-I-B-L-E!

Our church has a “Bible Dedication” for all first graders every Fall.  It is a Sunday where the kids and their families come and stand before the church and say “ I do” to these three things…

“Parents, if you desire to read the Bible with your child as a regular part of your family routine, with God’s help, say I DO.”
“Parents, if you desire to talk with your child about the Scriptures as a natural part of your day, with God’s help, say I DO.”
“Parents and first graders, if you believe that the Bible is God’s Word and therefore the foundation for all truth and spiritual growth, say I DO.”

The kids are then presented with their Bible!

Yesterday we, along with Rebekah, proudly said “I DO” to all these statements! Our prayer for all  our children is that they fall in love with God’s Word and hold it close to their hearts.

If a child can read “ do you like green eggs and ham?”,

they can also read “ For GOD so loved the WORLD! “






A very good day!
