Beginning February 9, our church will embark on a Bible reading program called IMMERSE: Prophets. Prophets presents the First Testament prophets in groupings that generally represent four historical periods: the prophets who spoke before the fall of Israel’s northern kingdom (Amos, Hosea, Micah, Isaiah), before the fall of the southern kingdom (Zephaniah, Nahum, Habakkuk), around the time of Jerusalem’s destruction (Jeremiah, Obadiah, Ezekiel), and after the return from exile (Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi, Joel, Jonah).The Bible we will be using is the New Living Translation (NLT), but the format has been modified so that it reads like it was intended to be read – like a story.
In addition to completing the weekly readings, we’ll meet together in small groups once a week to discuss what we’ve read. These groups are designed to be more like discussion groups than a “fill in the blank” kind of study. Think of it more like a conversation or a book club than a Bible study. We’re asking everyone in the Church to get involved in a small group! The “IMMERSE: Beginnings” Bible ($11) and small group sign-up sheets are available in the lobby. Signup today!
