When we baptize our children, we promise to nurture them in our Christian faith. Reading and studying the Bible together is one way to fulfill this promise and for this reason, children in three-year Church School receive an illustrated Story Bible. Parents attend a class before the Bible presentation lead by Christian educators who will give them suggestions about how to use the Bible at home for devotionals, bedtime stories and passing along the faith. After the Bible presentation, parents and children enjoy a celebration snack together. The children who receive new Bibles are listed in an upcoming worship bulletin. This provides a reminder for the whole congregation to be in prayer for the faith development of all children.

Children of God Storybook Bible
" You shall put these words of mine in your heart and soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and fix them as an emblem on your forehead. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise."
