As we move into this new season, we want to be a community who is growing in our relationship with God and centering our lives around His story. One way we can do this is by spending time reading and listening to Scripture. Here are a few tools to help you in that journey:
The Bible App is a great place to begin- simply download the app, choose a reading plan, and start reading.
