The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, given to us for our instruction in God’s ways (1 Corinthians 10:11); we are called to read, learn, study, and meditate on them to become fully developed followers of Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us on that journey, using some or all of the resources below.

Prayer for the Day and Scripture Readings for Sunday July 3, 2022
Grant us, O Lord, we pray, the spirit to think and do always those things that are right, that we, who can do no good thing apart from you, may by you be enabled to live according to your will; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

The e100 Readings for this week are:
The Fall of Jerusalem: 2 Kings 25:1-30
Feeding the Five Thousand: Luke 9:1-17
The e100 is a Bible reading plan in which participants can read and reflect over the course of a year on 100 of the most significant passages in the Bible. Taken together, these 100 passages offer a snapshot into the mighty works of God in Creation, Redemption, Sanctification (separating a community of people to himself, for his purposes) and Glorification (his ultimate intention for the restoration of humanity to the fullness of how he made us to be in the beginning).
