We are continuing our sermon series Path to Victory. In this series, we have looked at the practices of the Early Christian Church. This week we will see that the Early Christian Church was devoted to their spiritual growth by reading the Scriptures. So the word we will be focusing on is Grow.
Reading the Bible is foundational for your faith. Everything else is built on it. That’s why I’ll be preaching a message on how the Bible grows your faith. But we need more than a sermon to start and sustain the daily habit of reading the Bible. That’s why we are continuing to use the YouVersion Bible app to read the Bible as a community.
If you are not already reading the Bible with us (or if you’ve dropped out), consider joining us on October 13 as we start the New Testament. Click here for more information about reading the Bible through the YouVersion app.
I look forward to worshiping with you this weekend in person or online this Saturday at 5:00pm or Sunday at 9:00 or 10:30am.
Sharing Christ’s victory,
