"The Bible Year"
A Sermon Series

Join us as we take on the challenge of reading the ENTIRE bible in ONE year starting September 1st!

Wait.  You’re asking me to do what?!  Yep - read the whole Bible in a year.  You won’t be alone.  The entire congregation will be journeying together as we make our way from Genesis to Revelation.  Don’t think you can sit down and read the Bible from cover to

Think about it in terms of smaller, daily goals.  Instead of being overwhelmed at the thought of the entire Bible, break it down in your mind to a commitment to read a short selection from the Bible one day at a time.  You can do that – especially since The Bible Year has it all mapped out for you day by day.

The daily readings are mapped out for us in "The Bible Year" by Magrey DeVega.  Each day guides us to a short selection from the Bible plus a small concise devotional every day.  We strongly encourage each family unit to have at least one copy of this book to guide you through the year.

To order your copy of "The Bible Year" visit Amazon.

On September 4th, David, Erin and Wendy will begin preaching on select passages from the weekly reading in a sermon series called "The Bible Year."
