Third Grade Bible Sunday
It is the tradition of FUMC Georgetown to present third grade students with a Children’s Bible with their name in it. All third graders are invited to participate in this tradition whether they come to church at FUMC Georgetown every Sunday, come to summer camps here, visit occasionally with friends and family, or anything in between! This year, the children will receive the Common English Version of the Bible, and we would love to present one to your third grader! If you would like for your child to receive a Bible at the 10:45 AM worship service on September 10, please email email@example.com the preferred name for the inscription by September 5.
