October 2019 - 15 Minutes a Day that will Change Your Life
Reading and reflecting on scripture is the #1 catalyst that will help you grow in your faith. But, let's face it, the Bible is a big, intimidating book.
 
Weirdly, feeling they don't understand the Bible is actually one of the biggest barriers people identify that stops them from reading the Bible!
 
That's why we're going to embark together on an introductory tour of scripture.   Easy-peasy, a few minutes a day, a few steps at a time.
 
30 Days to Understanding the Bible: Unlock the Scriptures in 15 Minutes a Day is our guidebook. Author Max Anders will clearly and concisely walk us through the Bible using straightforward language, charts and diagrams, and helpful summaries. There's even a short self-test at the end of each chapter to make sure you caught the major points.

Pick up a copy at church ($25) or order your copy from Amazon or Indigo and be ready to go on October 1st!
