Summer Bible Challenge
As summer approaches, life slows down. It is a great time to jump into reading and reflecting on scripture. So here is the challenge… which of these will become your summer habit?
Did you know that St. Luke’s Scripture+Shared App has a daily reading plan? This summer’s topic is Paul’s letters. Each weekday the app will offer a selection of scripture, a brief commentary and reflection questions. Download the Scripture+Shared App and when you go on vacation, your Bible study goes right with you. Why not ask a friend to join you?
Bible in 90 Days
It may seem daunting—reading the entire Bible, word for word in just 90 days—but the experience is transformative when done in community. Join Dr. Linda Christians and Ken Jacobson on a journey beginning in the Garden of Eden in Genesis and ending in Revelation. Groups meet Tuesdays, June 6-August 29 from 1-2 p.m. or 6-7 p.m.
Do you want to read the Bible, but don’t even know where to start? Bible 101 is for you. No embarrassment, no intimidation. In 10-weeks Rev. Thomas Harper and Katie Montgomery Mears will take you through the Old Testament where you gain a deeper understanding of the birth of Israel, the exile and return of the Israelites and how God was with them the whole time. Bible 101 meets Wednesdays, June 7-August 9 from 6-7 p.m.
Journey to Jerusalem
If you missed the Journey to Jerusalem church-wide study, the materials including videos from Dr. Tom Pace, weekly readings and discussion questions are still available. Find a “Bible Buddy” and start at any time.
Family Bible Study
Families with young children (pre-school and elementary aged) can connect with the Family Bible study time over dinner or while playing in the sand! Together, you may read and experience Jesus right where you are.
About the Challenge
We Study the Bible is one of our five Inside-Out Habits at St. Luke’s. Reading the Bible and discussing it with others is life-changing. Our church has set a goal to have at least 2000 people studying the Bible with others during 2017. This will be a real pivotal experience in the life of our community, as we strengthen our Biblical understanding which is the foundation and launching pad for all of our Inside-Out ministry. Join a Bible study, or ask a friend to join you and study together.
Let us know about how you study Bible in Community and watch the numbers grow as we work toward 2000. Can we count on you to help us meet this goal?
