The Journey Reading plan is designed to get the Church involved in scripture reading.  Our small groups meet and discuss portions of the previous weeks readings.  We believe it is a powerful thing for a church to be reading scripture together and in doing so it creates opportunities for further discussion in our day to day lives.  There is purpose and intentionally to reading through the same passages together. We find our purpose and direction in the Word of God.

 

Psalm 109:105 Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.
