Think back to your childhood for a moment. Do you remember the day you were given the first Bible of your own? One with your name on the cover, proclaiming to the world that the stories inside belonged to you and that you belonged to them? Or what about the first time you were asked to do a special job at church? Do you remember the excitement – and maybe the butterflies in your stomach?

Our September 25th worship service was a special one for the children of our church as we dedicated the service of our newest acolytes to God and gave our third graders Bibles of their own. Thank you, children, for inspiring us to search for our own ways to serve and study the gift of God’s holy word.
