Family Life News -
FAMILIES: "Read Together, Pray Together," is the theme of a fun, summer reading program from Concordia Publishing House. It encourages kids to read all summer long, so they build vocab and comprehension skills while learning more about their Savior! It also encourages parents to be involved in their kids' spiritual lives. The program runs June 1- Aug 13 and each book earns them points. If they log 1,000 reading points by 8/13, they'll be entered to win awesome prizes. Look for info at the Welcome Center or just go to cph.org/reads to register.
