This Faith-At-Home Milestone for kids entering 1st grade this fall includes a meal and special time of prayer for each family. Parents will present a Bible and letter they have written to their child about the importance of God's Word. Bibles ($15) will be available the day of the event for those who pre-register online, or parents may choose to provide a Bible themselves.

The Children’s Minster, Amy Elizabeth Cockroft, will also be present to welcome the rising 1st graders to Kid Town, give a tour, and a brief overview of what to expect. The following Sunday, August 13, 2017, is Move Up Sunday, when children will promote to their new classrooms. 

NOTE: If you are holding your child back in kindergarten another year, you will wait and attend the 2018 event. Please email Vicki Watson at if you plan to hold your child back, so they will be placed in the appropriate Life Group.
