Bibles for the Children Sponsorship
This fall, we will present every child in kindergarten through fifth grade with a Bible. We weren't able to do our annual giving of the Bibles during the pandemic, so we want to get caught up and make sure that every child has a Bible. Kids K - 2 will receive a story bible, and kids 3 - 5 will receive a full text NRSV Bible. Can you help us by sponsoring a Bible? Each one is $25. Please note in memo "bibles for kids/Family Ministry.
