How to Read the Bible

Everyone can read the Bible better. Whether you’re someone who reads the Bible daily or someone who never reads the Bible at all, all of us can be better. God has spoken. The Creator of all that exists- sun, moon, stars, galaxies, mountains, oceans, plants, animals, human beings- has chosen to tell us who He is and what He is like. In this book, He invites us into His story and into a relationship with Him. In the Bible we learn more about the one we love and learn to obey Him. If we think about what the Bible actually is, why would we not want to be better readers of it? Below are some of the resources we talked about.

Monday Board Games

Since it’s pouring down rain and likely to continue raining all day, we’re going to change plans for today. We will not meet at Starcke Park for a day at the park. We will instead meet in the fellowship hall. Bring a board game and a snack to share. I’ll have a few board games too. See you today from 1pm-4pm.

The [Soop..er.. Bole] Party

We can’t call it a Super Bowl Party, officially, because the NFL will sue. Here’s the skinny…

  • The Super Bowl is this Sunday, February 1st.
  • Let’s meet at Jeff and Gail’s house at 5pm. 152 Castle Breeze.
  • Jeff is grilling fajitas.
  • Guys bring a 2 liter drink TO SHARE. That means a drink other people will like too. (dr pepper **cough **cough)
  • Girls bring a snack or dessert TO SHARE.
  • The party is over when the game is over, or earlier if mom and dad want it to be. Parents should keep an eye on the game and start heading to Jeff and Gail’s when the game is just about over. (Mom and Dad are always welcome to stay and hang out too)
  • THERE ARE NO RIDES FROM THE CHURCH.
