**BAD TAG - Third Grade Bible Skipping Stone Workshop & Celebration 2023-2024
Exploring God’s Word
For Grade 3
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path – Psalm 119:105
Children are captivated by the Bible’s dramatic stories, the life of biblical times, and learning more about Jesus and the message God has for us through the Word.
Our Third Grade Bible Blessing is designed for children during 3rd grade (or higher) as they become independent readers. We fulfill the baptismal promise to “place into their hands the holy scriptures” by gifting them an age-appropriate version of the Bible. It’s one of our six Skipping Stones to celebrate moments in a child’s journey of life and faith!
Families choose to attend ONE of the following workshop options:
- Wednesday, Jan. 31; 6:30-7:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall (Sanctuary Building)
- Thursday, Feb. 1; 6:30-7:30 p.m. ONLINE via Zoom
The workshop introduces children and parents to their new Connect Bible, a New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) edition, given as a gift from St. Andrew’s. It's a fun, energetic learning experience led by Pastor Amy Mihelich Smith, and the Children's Ministry Team. Topics include an overview of what’s in the Bible, how it’s organized, how to look up verses, and how the Bible came to be. Children receive a Bible carrying bag, bookmark, pen, and highlighter – tools to get them started into a life of reading and studying God’s Word. Children attend with at least one parent/guardian or adult partner; the nursery will be available for younger siblings during the Wednesday evening workshop. Children do not have to be members of St. Andrew's.
The Celebration will take place in worship the first weekend in February. In your registration, you will be asked to select your worship service time. During the service families will be invited forward and parents will place this new Bible into their child's hands, and receive a blessing from the pastors and congregation.
