All coming events are subject to change due to Coronavirus pandemic.
Volunteers are needed to support an evangelism project starting in August titled: “Loved Bible Project Rowan”
In this process you’ll complete a 31-day devotional titled “I Am”. As you’re reading the scripture that goes along with the daily devotion, you’ll highlight and make notes (insert cards or sticky notes) in a new Bible on what resonates with you about the scripture. In other words, what was important to you and what does someone new to the “Word” needs to understand about the passage. It’s like you become a tour guide to scripture explaining the purpose and relevance of what a new, or potentially new believer needs to understand about the passage each day. We will provide you with a Bible and some supplies to leave your messages.
Also, as you’re going through this process, you will share and inspire others with your favorite scriptures from the Bible, being a guiding light for those seeking to understand the power of God’s word. Sharing those scripture passages that have inspired and motivated you to do God’s work! Be a blessing that leads other to Christ!
You’ll select your favorite passages from the Bible highlighting them and leaving notes on why that passage is an inspiration to you. Leave bookmarks and cards concerning scripture that brings you closer to Gods kingdom. Most importantly, have fun sharing God’s word to those in need of it!!
When you’re done with the process the Bible you have completed will be turned back in and given to someone seeking to understand the importance of God’s word. At this point we will be providing these bibles to the Pregnancy Support Center of Rowan County and Rowan Helping Ministries or to someone you know in need of His Word. We will be tracking where our Loved Bibles end up.
If you’re interested please contact Ann Teague in the office and she has access to the materials during the week. David will also be handing out Bibles and supplies in the Narthex prior to our worship services each Sunday. We have 24 more Bibles that are in need of love and this project goes through 9/27, so you have plenty of time to get started on this journey of bringing others to Christ!!! Thrivent is supporting this project and provided funding for the Bibles we are using for this initiative. I also believe there are a few t-shirts left in various sizes. Get on board with sharing the Bible in an inspiring way to those seeking Christ.
