On this significant day, a fair was organized for Sunday school children. Fair organizer Elmira Alutis (with a team of Sunday school teachers).

Denarius could be earned by answering questions from the Bible. Questions were raised from the material covered during the academic year. There were also sports activities and tasks for ingenuity.

The purpose of the fair was to arouse children’s desire to know the Word of God and increase Sunday school attendance.
This is the first time that this kind of fair has been held at the Bible Way Church, but it has created a lot of excitement and interest among the children. All children, depending on their activities, were able to purchase surprises at the fair and were very pleased with the fun program. We thank Elmira and her team for a fun, active and interesting New Year’s fair! We wish everyone a happy and wonderful New Year!
