Bible 1A summertime Bible reading program keeps students connected to God during the summer when their school year Bible club is not in session.

The reading program Hang 10, which kicked off Memorial Day, helps continue routine summer education during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Beach Club President Jack Terrell.

He says Hang 10 encourages students ages 8 to 10 to spend 10 minutes in the Bible each day.

Hang 10 was developed as a part of the Kids Beach Club after-school program, and the adult leaders took notice that many children who participated, and took a Bible home, were often introducing the very first one to parents. 

“The kids were taking these Bibles home and the parents were beginning to read the Bible,” Terrell explains, “because as both you and I know, there is a natural bent that we have to want to know who God is."

Since 2003, when Kids Beach Club began, 9,200 kids in the program have made a profession of faith in Jesus Christ.
