40 Days in the WORD!

Why do we try to navigate our way through life without a map? The Bible is our roadmap for life.

All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives.  It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right.   It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

40 DAYS IN THE WORD is a 6 week church-wide campaign spiritual growth campaign designed to help each person love the Word, learn the Word, and live the Word of God.  Campaign dates are:   Aug 18-Sept 30, 2012

This campaign consists of 4 elements:

1. 6 powerful Sunday messages from Pastor Rich: Inspiration for the Bible, Foundation of the Bible, Illumination of the Bible, Interpretation of the Bible, Integration of the Bible, and Application of the Bible.

2. LifeGroups.  LifeGroups are the best environment to learn and grow spiritually.  LifeGroups will meet one day a week for 6 weeks, teaching you how to study the Bible, how to live it and how to do it.  This study is led, via DVD, by Pastor Rich Witmer. LifeGroups meet in various locations across the community. Stop by the 40 Days in the Word booth at your campus to pickup your workbook for this six-week campaign.  To find a 40 Days in the Word LifeGroup near you, click here.
