Journey Through the Bible

Join us on January 1st as First United Methodist Church embarks on the most life-giving and life-transforming journey any follower of Jesus will ever take. Beginning in January, we will begin reading the Bible together as a church. A reading schedule is was provided with your bulletin a few weeks ago (on green paper), which will take us through the whole Bible in a year, beginning in Genesis and Matthew. Each day includes an Old and New Testament reading, and by years-end you will have completed the entire bible start to finish!  If you find you cannot do both Old and New Testament readings, please join us for at least the New Testament readings.  

God’s Word is alive and active, and so, when we read the Bible with an openness to the movement of the Holy Spirit, God reveals himself to us, leads us, comforts us, changes us and delights us.  To journey along with your church family:
