INTRODUCING THE CHALLENGE
Starting April 20th, we want to invite you to read through the Bible with us as we begin reading Scripture together using the "Read Scripture" app. This app helps you read through the Bible in a year while also helping explain the historical, cultural, and literary background of this book along the way. You can download the app by visiting readscripture.org.
Also, invite others to join us as we read through the Bible together, and check back here for more updates and tools to help you get ready.

That will send your question to Pastor Nick.
HOW TO SET UP THE APP
