Bring Your Bible to School Day is coming up in just a few weeks on Thursday, October 1.

The event is promoted by our friends at Focus on the Family.

Each year it is estimated that more than half a million students across the United States participate by bringing their Bibles to school with them on this day.

Focus on the Family writes,

#BringYourBible is a nationwide, student-led movement to read and treasure Scripture as God’s Holy Word, to encourage others with the hope we have in Christ Jesus, and to celebrate our religious freedoms in the United States. It all culminates with Bring Your Bible to School Day on the first Thursday of October. (This year, the celebration will be October 1, 2020!) This event empowers Christian students of all ages to speak God’s grace and truth into the culture around them, starting with two simple steps — bringing their Bibles to school and sharing what God’s Word means to them.

School may be different for some kids this year, but students everywhere still can participate in Bring Your Bible to School Day. It’s a fun and easy way to exercise religious liberty.
