HEAR the Word Together in 2021!
Despite the challenges we face, we are excited for the possibilities of spiritual growth individually, as families and as a church in 2021 through our HEAR The Word Together in 2021 challenge! If you missed the presentation for it from January 3rd, you can view it here.
READ - Read through the New Testament (1 chapter a day, 5 days a week) in 2021 using Replicate’s Foundations 260 New Testament reading plan. This is the the bread and butter, but we encourage you to consider the following beneficial disciplines as well.
HEAR - Reflect on what you’re reading with a simple journaling approach called HEAR. See a sample here. Speaking of hearing, Pastor David will also plan his preaching schedule around the reading plan!
MEMORIZE - Hide God’s Word in your heart by memorizing one provided verse each week.
TOGETHER - Let’s do this together! With our regular gatherings and programs potentially continuing to be disrupted, we want to go out of our way to provide opportunities - in person or by phone, Zoom, etc. - to connect to one another and grow together. This challenge is a helpful rallying point to simply share together what you are HEAR’ing in God’s Word each week. These connections could start at any time during the year! Together options include...
-Partners - Link up with a friend or two.
-Groups - Meet up in discipleship groups of 3-5 men or women or more open format life groups.
-Families - Go through the challenge together with your spouse and/or children.
We want to encourage and equip you in this as best possible in the months ahead as well as assist you in connecting to others if you wish. To help us do so, would you please fill out this brief online response form to let us know of your interest and any questions you may have?
If you did not already receive one, you can get a packet at the church containing all you need (reading plan, memory verses, HEAR journal how-to’s). In the meantime, you can learn more and access the plan digitally (including YouVersion!) here from Replicate, or find the reading plan here.
You’ll also see referenced there optional workbooks (Kids, Teens, Adults) to consider using during the year. We have these workbooks ($10) AND some highly discounted study Bibles available in the Welcome Center. Great Christmas gift ideas!
