3rd Grade Bible Presentation

Presenting a Bible to third graders is an important tradition for us at Church of the Resurrection. We aren’t able to do this in a live worship service this year, but we still have a special celebration planned. Please register your third grader by January 19 so we can deliver Bibles to your homes or mail them if you're outside the Kansas City area. Then on Sunday, January 31, we’ll invite all third graders to a special Zoom call with Pastor Adam.
