An invitation from Pastor Kris:
I’ve always wanted to read the Bible from cover to cover. You might think that as a Pastor I have done this several times over. It’s true–I’ve read the whole Bible — but never cover to cover. SO — this year I am going to do it! And — I thought I would invite all of you along on the journey!
God’s Word is filled with adventure. From floods and plagues to whole countries being overthrown and babies being born. And this adventure is really about how God’s love intersects with real people in real lives just like yours and mine. Why not spend a year reading the whole thing and see how God’s love intersects with your life in new ways? Why not open the pages of scripture every day and ask God to speak into your life?
We will be reading from The NRSV Daily Bible which includes special prayers and devotions for each day of the year. We will embrace the digital age with a Facebook Group and an online forum on Easter’s soon-to-be-released NEW website where you can interact with others who are on the same adventure. Finally, there will be a once a month touchpoint — the first Tuesday of the month where we can meet face to face and discuss the big questions and revelations that come before us as we read each day.
DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS:
- Start reading Day 1 on October 1
- First in-person meeting will be Tuesday, November 4, 7-8:30 p.m., Easter by the Lake
- Join us at 5:30 p.m. for a Community meal before the class gathering
- Meet 1st Tuesday of each month in the new Lakeside Room at Easter by the Lake
- Share online with Facebook Group –OR– new online forum on Easter’s website in fall
- The in-person meeting is optional, as are the Facebook Group and Online Forum
We want you to study along with us in whatever format works best for you and your schedule.
