Did you know? Bring Your Bible to School Day is October 8th

Do you know about “Bring Your Bible to School Day”? This year it takes place Thursday, Oct. 8 and encourages kids to bring their Bibles to school for the day.

Religious freedom is under attack. If you want to see it in action firsthand, let you child bring their Bible to school and pull it out to read… during free reading time, on the playground, or in the cafeteria. See what happens. Sometimes it’s nothing. But often, children are told that they cannot read it on campus. That’s simply not true.

Teaching your child about their Constitutional religious rights is an important life lesson. The “Bring Your Bible to School Day” raises an awareness not only for your children, but also for school officials who often are not aware of children’s Constitutional right to exercise their religious freedom on campus.

“We have to speak up and know the rights we have,” he says. “The more people who spread the word about God, the better it is.”

Tools to prepare for this day can be found at BringYourBible.
