Sharing God's Word: Bible Sunday
It is tradition here at First United Methodist Church that each year on Bible Sunday, we present our third graders with their very own Bible, as a gift from the Church.
By third grade, most of our children are capable of reading from the Bible on a daily basis, and as a gift of encouragement, we honor them during the 10:40 a.m. worship service. This year, a Bible was presented to Alexandra.
Members of our Church family surrounded Alexandra and her family in love on Sunday, and many brought their own Bibles to the service. Some told stories of the first Bible they had ever received (including several from this congregation and this building), and others shared family Bibles dating back to the late 1800s and early 1900s.
We rejoice with Alexandra and her family in this special day. We continue to pray for the Lord to be at work in and through her, as well as ourselves, as we read and study His word.
Coffee Fellowship, immediately following Worship each Sunday morning, is a casual time to grab a snack and catch up with each other on the previous week's events.
