Beyond the Gospels

We spent the last 170 days together in Scripture reading through all four gospels. What’s next? How about going beyond the gospels and continuing the journey into the New Testament?

A habit has been developed and hopefully a hunger for His Word, neither of which we want to lose. The discipline of regular time in Scripture prepares our hearts and lives for God to bless us with spiritual growth.

So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything,
but only God, who makes things grow.
1 Corinthians 3:7 NIV84
Growing in Faith at FUMC has been cultivating a place for the planting of His Word by providing a reading schedule for you to follow. We’ve tried to add water through the offering of devotionals and prayers. But only God can make any of it grow in your heart.
In an effort to keep the cultivation going we feel led to go beyond the gospels but at a little different pace.
The next readings will begin with Acts and then Romans. Instead of every day, readings will be scheduled five days a week: Monday through Friday. Devotionals will continue here and reading schedules will be available in the bulletin and newsletter.
Acts and Romans will take us up to the season of Advent, then we’ll see where it leads. The Acts blog posts will be written by Stacy and Pastor Doug will take us through Romans.
Continue to make a place in your life for Him and His Word. Join us Monday, August 10, to begin the journey Beyond the Gospels…
