Join the Journey… Read thru the New Testament

The Bible is the best-selling book of all time, but when was the last time you sat down to read it straight through? Have you ever read the Bible from cover to cover? What about just the New Testament? This year, the RCA community is endeavoring to read through the entire New Testament from Matthew to Revelation together… won’t you join us?

Go to our new blog, http://thentchallenge.blogspot.com and you’ll find resources to help us do this together, keeping ourselves accountable and making the journey through Scripture come alive, as we seek not only to read God’s Word, but to live it every day. We want to encourage each other and your thoughts may help somebody else understand something a little bit better. We invite you to post your thoughts and comments as we read together. Go to the link “Reading Plan” to download a copy of our schedule. We’ll be reading about 3-4 chapters a day… Monday – Friday with breaks during the weekends and week-long holidays (Fall Break & Thanksgiving Break)… you can use those to catch up if you get behind!

We also invite you to subscribe to the blog so that you’ll recieve e-mail notifications as new articles are posted. As we go, book introductions will be posted, providing some background information on each of the 27 books of our New Testament. Also, you’ll find study guide questions which our Middle & High School students will be discussing in their Bible classes at Riverside. These will also include “journaling thoughts” questions which are intended to help our students apply God’s truths to their real world situations.

In addition to our Middle & High School students, we are inviting the entire faculty, staff, Board of Directors and RCA families to join us in this challenge. Won’t you read along with us?
