WMC: April 2017
Bible Month....coming soon!
'Who is wise and understanding among you? Show by your good life that your works are done with gentleness born of wisdom.'
In June 2017, the Methodist Church is encouraging churches and circuits across the Connexion to run a 'Bible Month', 30 days focused on the letter of James. The Bible Month will involve two key elements
Preachers preparing and preaching a series of sermons on James over the four Sundays of June.
Small group leaders running a 'Bible Month' group that focuses on James, but which also helps those attending engage the Bible in fresh and innovative ways.
By focusing on a single biblical book, the aim of the Bible Month is to help all in church engage more deeply with Scripture. A pilot project showed that the Bible Month model could be effective in raising biblical literacy, and the majority of those who took part were keen to hold another Bible Month in the future!
Wantage Methodist Church will be taking part in this... more details soon.
