Research tells us that the number one thing that affects spiritual growth in both kids and adults is reading the Bible. Now more than ever, we need it’s comfort and wisdom! Therefore, we are encouraging families to read the Scriptures together in 2021. We are offering a challenge to children interested in reading their Bibles daily (I know some days it might not happen but strive to read at least something daily). Children 

who are interested in accepting the reading challenge are invited to register to “Adopt a Pet.” Kids can choose to adopt a puppy or a kitten. Pets will arrive in January. They are encouraged to share their Bible readings with their “pet.” As children grow in the word, they can earn fun extras for their pets (beds, food, toys, etc). Each month, parents will be emailed a calendar with the daily reading and any child who completes their daily reading and sends it back will receive their pet’s accessory. You can request a puppy or a kitten by completing the form below. “Adoption requests” must be received by January 5, 2021.


Kick off 2021 with a healthy habit of daily Scripture reading together as a family!
