Third graders of The Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township (PCCT) were presented with their own Bible during the worship service. At the same time, the Confirmation Class, comprised of students in ninth grade, received their own study Bible as part of a commissioning ceremony.
Over the next six weeks, the third graders will go through the Bible Adventure series, a first step to understanding the books of the Bible with a focus on Bible literacy and navigation taught through games and activities. The Third Grade Bible Adventure series is part of the Milestones program at PCCT which provides opportunities for children to learn more about the church and grow in their own faith journey.
Confirmation at PCCT is a nine-month program of learning, service, and participation in the worshipping life of the congregation. The confirmation program is designed to: Prepare young people to become adult members of the church; enable them to make a public profession of faith; and invite them to complete the vows made by their parents at the time of their baptisms.
