To begin growing our focus on reading the Bible, we invite you to join us in a Bible book of the month book-club type of approach. Each month from September 2020 to August 2021, we hope the whole church will focus on reading the same book of the Bible. We have asked a broad array of people from across the ELCIC to write questions to help us engage more fully in a discussion of the monthly readings.
