Stepping Stone #3 – Stepping into the Word (First Bible)
By third grade, children have begun to read well enough to start using their own Bibles. In this stepping stone, parents and children are invited to a special class to learn about the Bible, to hear how the story of salvation comes together in the Bible, and to highlight special Bible passages. This stepping stone helps parents fulfill their baptismal promise to place the Scriptures into the hand of their child and teaches them about the importance of the Bible in their child’s faith development. At a special worship service, parents/guardians have the opportunity to present the Bible to their child in a special ceremony. This stepping stone class is offered on two Sundays in September.
