Students across the United States are participating in Bring Your Bible To School Day today, October 6.
Bring Your Bible to School Day
Bring Your Bible to School Day is an annual event sponsored by Focus On The Family, a global ministry dedicated to helping families thrive. Over the past years, hundreds of thousands of students participated in the one-day nationwide event. This year, the event will be celebrated today, October 6.
“It is crucial our students today understand the importance of God’s Word as not only one of the most historically influential books of all time — but that it is the words of life that give us a window into the heart of our creator,” Emerson Collins, Bring Your Bible to School spokesperson and project manager, said. “Perhaps now more than ever, the truth of scripture and the Gospel must be proclaimed.”

The Bring Your Bible to School Day was first launched in 2014. Since then, it has grown into a nationwide movement. Every year, parents are posting pictures of their children with their Bibles as they went off to school. In 2021, over 500,000 students participated in the event.
“Bring Your Bible to School Day is a terrific opportunity for our nation’s students to boldly and freely put feet to their faith,” Jim Daly, president, and CEO of Focus on the Family explained. “In this day and age of shifting values and children desperate for hope and help, it comes at the perfect time. Reminding all Americans of the principles of civility, free expression, and fair and open dialogue.”
Skillet’s John Cooper promoted the event on social media emphasizing the importance of the Word of God.
“We are living in a time where truth can be whatever you want it to be. It’s my truth, it’s your truth, or the truth is changing,” he said. “The Bible says the sum of [His] word is truth, and that is good news because what it means is that you can actually live a life built on sure footing in the word of God because His truth never ever changes.”
