E100 Bible Challenge

Essential 100 - Your journey through the Bible in 100 readings!

The elders are encouraged by the church family's response to the Community Bible Experience. The positive stories and feedback are truly faith-building. While we appreciate that CBE was for 8 weeks only, we sense the Holy Spirit's leading to make 2012 The Year of the Bible.

We strongly recommend that you continue the Monday to Friday reading pattern and take up Scripture Union's Essential 100 Reading Challenge.

The 100 carefully selected daily Bible readings, (50 Old and 50 New Testament of one or two chapters) prayer and accompanying notes will give you the 'big picture' of the Bible. We'll use the same model for discussion groups. The recommendation is to cover the Old Testament by end July and the New Testament September to December. The printed reading plan incorporates space for Wednesday church members and main church prayer meetings. Tim Trimble is contacting group leaders.
