All third graders receive a new Bible on Sunday, August 21 at PVUMC’s 2016 annual Bible Blast. Every year on this special Sunday, we gift all 3rd graders, and any 4th graders who missed last year’s event, with a “SPLASH” Deep Blue Bible. Families are urged to participate with their child after the Bible presentation in the sanctuary at 9:30 am, as we continue the event in the Fellowship Center. We’ll provide a quick overview of the Bibles and fun challenges. If you have a 3rd or 4th grader, please contact Rev. Brenda Smith, children’s director, by Sunday, August 14 to RSVP for a Bible and the event. Call the church office at 602-840-8360 or email Brenda at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP or to ask any questions. This year, the 3rd and 4th grade classes will be combined, as will 1st and 2nd grade and 5th-7th grade.
