read bible daily

Our Sermon Series is exploring how we “Serve God by serving others.” In preparation for this week, we are reading Luke 21:1-4 to learn how generosity brings us closer to Jesus.

Find the daily readings below along with questions for reflection. Join (or begin!) the discussion in the comments. We’d love to hear from you about how reading the Bible daily is bringing you closer to God and one another.

You also may be interested in joining a small group that focuses on exploring the scripture for the following Sunday’s sermon or learning how to approach Bible study in general – or a variety of other opportunities to “seek answers to our questions” as part of a group. Check it out here!

  2. Helping at the food pantry keeps me constantly aware of how much I have. It also makes me see how I tend to guard what I have and don’t give freely enough.
