Looking for a way to keep your faith active and engaged this summer?
Join the Living Word Bible Story Summer Reading Challenge!
How it works:
Pledge! This summer pledge as a family, couple, or individual to read 4-5 Bible Stories each week for 12 weeks beginning on Sunday, June 7th and ending on Sunday, August 30th (Fall Kick-Off Sunday).
Get a Bible! Story Bibles are recommended for families with small children. This challenge references the Spark Story Bible published by 1517 Media. If you need help getting a Bible contact Mark or Pastor Ariel.
Read! Starting at the beginning of the list, read 4-5 stories individually or as a group each week. If a story is not in your Story Bible, then select a similar story that is.
Track your progress! Bible Story Maps are available to help track progress.
Discuss! Use one or more of the questions listed below to discuss the stories. If you are doing this challenge solo, consider keeping a journal for reflection.
-What is the story about? (Feel free to get creative! Retell the story in your own words, act it out, portray it via an artistic medium.)
-What did you like best in the story? With whom did you identify?
-How does this story connect with the previous one? Where do you see signs of God’s covenant (promise or pledge) with God’s people?
-What does this story call you or your household to do as God’s people?
