By Rev. Dr. David Milam, Pastor
In October 2012, St Andrew Presbyterian Church, 711 West Main Street, Purcellville, will be starting on an exciting journey: The Year of the Bible is a comprehensive, congregation-wide program of Bible reading. We are challenging everyone at our church, along with our neighbors and friends, to read the entire Bible in one year. In addition to reading the Scriptures, there will be help along the way. Weekly sermons, small groups, Christian Education from kids to adults, worship and devotions are focusing on the Year of the Bible.
Our pastors David Milam and Jessica McClure Archer have put together a weekly reading guide. In addition to daily readings, each week will have an overview of the books of the Bible we’re reading, devotions, some thought-provoking questions to ponder, and space for your questions and journaling. This resource will be valuable for your own personal use and for use in small groups. The reading plan booklet is available for download from our church website at www.standrew-pres.org. Also, visit our Facebook page (St. Andrew Presbyterian Church) and like us to keep up to date with all that’s happening with the Year of the Bible.
Several small groups are following along with the Year of the Bible. They will use the weekly reading plan as a guide for discussions during their meetings. Having someone to share your insights and thoughts with, to ask questions about what you’ve read, can make reading the Bible even more meaningful. The groups are open for new participants.
Join in the challenge to read the entire Bible in one year. For more information, see the church web site at www.standrew-pres.org or call the church office at 540-338-4332.
