What:  First Bible Milestone Celebration
When: Sunday, May 2nd at 11:00am
Where: Gateway Community Church
Who:  All First and Second Graders and Parent(s)


One of our Spiritual Milestones is the “First Bible”, which will be celebrated at the end of your child’s first grade year. The purpose of this Spiritual Milestone is to give your child a special Bible that will celebrate their ability to read. Because of the circumstances of last year with the Pandemic, we have decided to include 2nd graders as well this year since they missed their opportunity last May. 

Since God’s Word is true and the foundation of our Christian lives, we want your child to begin reading the Bible at a young age to advance them along their spiritual journey. Our vision is for every first grader/second grader to receive a Bible from their parents during the Bible Presentation Ceremony in May.

Sign up and order your child's Bible ($12) or bring your own! We want to make sure we can follow CDC guidelines for safety protocol, and at this time we cannot allow walk-ins. Registration closes on April 29th. Space is limited, and we will be wearing masks for the ceremony.
