Bibles for grads committee looking for names

The Bibles for Grads committee is, once again, compiling a list of Grade 12 students so they can ensure they receive a personally engraved Bible.

Committee member Diane Powell said anyone who knows of a Grade 12 student living in the area, but attending a school other than H. J. Cody, is asked to contact Sharon Nielsen at 887-3419.

“We need names as soon as possible so we can get their Bibles engraved,” she said. The committee, including people from all denominations, has already started planning for the event.

Powell said the committee strives to ensure that all Grade 12 students receive a Bible.

The Bibles for Grads ceremony and turkey dinner will be April 11 at Sylvan Lake’s community centre from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event includes a full course meal, entertainment and presentation of the Bibles.

Money for the event is raised through the Sylvan Lake Ministerial Association, which includes Benalto Baptist Church, as well as through individual donations. An offering during the Massed Choir Cantata at Christmas time also supports the event.
