Walk Through the BibleHave you even wanted to read through the entire Bible but thought it was too much to tackle by yourself? Do you want to spend time daily with God but find the discipline is hard? Reading the Bible and engaging with the Word is part of the life-changing journey that we experience as followers of Christ. However, sometimes we don’t understand what we read and adding something to our routines can be challenging. This year make a new commitment and join with a community of people as we take the journey through scripture together. Walk Through the Bible is a one year study that helps bring the Bible alive to the reader. Meeting once a month, the group engages in individual study and reflection using Daily Walk magazine as a guide and then comes together monthly for discussion and accountability.
