A monthly publication for Christian parents with ideas and insights into helping children grow in their love and faith in Jesus.
3rd Graders’ Bible Presentation
At a child’s baptism, solemn promises are made to the Lord. Do you remember?
In Christian love, you presented your child for Holy Baptism. As Christian parents, it is your calling to keep these sacred promises:
- To faithfully bring them to the services of God’s house
- To teach them the Lord’s Prayer, the Creed and the Ten Commandments.
- To place in their hands the Holy Scriptures
- And to provide for their instruction in the Christian faith.
It is that third promise, the one to place in their hands the Holy Scriptures, that your child is truly ready to receive.
At every baptism that takes place at Trinity, our members also make a solemn promise. Trinity promises to pray for and assist Christian parents in the joyful privilege of raising their children in Christ.
These presentations take place each Reformation Sunday (the last Sunday in October). Trinity provides an annual “workshop” created especially for parents of children in third grade which emphasizes the importance of incorporating God’s Word into daily family life. The workshop takes place one week prior to the actual presentation of the Bibles to the third grade children – by their parents – in the worship services on Reformation weekend.
