The Bible Challenge


 
Bible Challenge 2014!   

We've launched the Bible Challenge again, some starting Monday, January 6 for the "tidiest" calendar year/weekly reading schedule journey... But you are welcome to start at any time!  Regular emails are posted in the sidebar, and you can email Mtr. Paige or go here to sign up for this and other emails from St. Peter's!


+++

St. Peter's invites you to The Bible Challenge, an opportunity to read through the entirety of the Bible over the course of one year.  

At the start of 2012, about 30 parishioners joined Mother Paige in The Bible Challenge. Every week or so, depending on what is being read by this "Jan 1 group," Mother Paige sends out an email with relevant resources, thoughts, and any questions that the group has emailed to her (and the answers, if she knows them!).  Links to these emails are below, along with the other resources.

In 2013 even more people joined, increasing our numbers to 55... the emails from 2013 are in the sidebar... and now, 2014!


Materials and information will be available at the back of the church, and are also available for download here by following the links below.

If you would like to be part of the email group around The Bible Challenge, please let Mtr. Paige know of your interest at 858 755 1616 x 101 or pblair@stpetersdelmar.net so that she may add you to the email list.

May God bless you in this journey through scripture, and 2014!
