Our mission is to Develop Biblically Grounded Followers of Christ. The way to do this is for us as a church, and as individuals, to be reading the Bible daily.
Here's the reading guide for 2022: Daily Reading Guide
1. Mediate on God's Word.
As you are reading, here are some questions to answers about each passage you read:
- What kind of God is God? What did I learn about God’s character and personality?
- What does God value? What was His intention?
- Where did we see Jesus in these verses?
- Who are we? Is there a command to obey? A promise to claim? Standard to live by?
- What is the personal application for our lives?
