October 3, 2019 is “Bring Your Bible To School Day”
October 3, 2019 is “Bring Your Bible to School Day” across America. “Bring Your Bible to School Day”, was started by Focus on the Family organization in 2014, in response to America removing Bibles from public schools. Approximately 8,000 students participated in the first year of the event, in 2014. That number increased to around 155,000 the next year, it more than doubled to over 356,000 students in 2016, and has continued to grow each year. The event is held each year, on October 3rd, in all 50 states in the United States. If you would like to know more about your rights, visit https://www.bringyourbible.org/know-your-rights/.
According to the Focus on the Family’s website, “On Bring Your Bible to School Day— this year’s event is on Oct. 3, 2019 — students across the nation will celebrate religious freedom and share God’s love with their friends. It’s an annual event for students sponsored by Focus on the Family. The event is designed to empower you as a student to express your belief in the truth of God’s Word–and to do so in a respectful way that demonstrates the love of Christ.
Participation is voluntary and student-directed—meaning it’s completely up to students, Christian clubs and youth groups to sign up online and then lead the activities in their school.
So be sure to mark your calendars to participate in this event! (This year’s event is on Oct. 3, 2019.)”
Students can also follow “Bring Your Bible to School Day” on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. The official hashtag is #BringYourBible.
