Since KiDs Beach Club® first began in 2003, teaching children about God’s Word has been the focal point to giving each child a Jesus experience inside their public elementary school. From 2003 through the fall of 2014, only one Bible was given to a child in each club each week the club met.
Beginning in the spring of 2015, giving every single child in every Beach Club their very own copy of God’s Word became a priority. This special day of Beach Club became known as Great Treasure Day.
This month KiDs Beach Club® celebrated a very special Great Treasure Day as the 50,000th Bible was handed out since that very first Bible back in 2003.
After weeks of anticipation and watching the tally of Bibles given to kids climb on the front page of the ministry’s new website (@KiDsBeachClub), it was projected that the 50,000th Bible would be given away on October 10 at the new Beach Club at Gilbert Elementary School, Irving, Texas, which is the second club to be sponsored by Christ Church Irving.
Gilbert Elementary had dozens of children in attendance for Great Treasure Day. All were giddy and excited to receive their new Bibles. What they didn’t know before they arrived that afternoon was one of them would be the 50,000th child in the history of KiDs Beach Club® to receive a KBC Explorer’s Study Bible (Thomas Nelson, 2009) in the New King James Version (NKJV) translation.
