90 Day Bible Challenge
 Week 4

In this last week, we heard about Moses, and the difficulty of transitioning to a new land and a new way of life, as the Israelites left Egypt and entered the promised land at the river  This week we look at the story of TEXT. 

Did you miss some readings last week? No guilt! Just pick up right here and don't worry--you can always go back and read those stories later. 

Each reading takes about 5 minutes to read. We also encourage you to take time to think about each reading, pray on it, and discover what God might be revealing to you in it.  Here are some questions to help you get started: 
What is God saying to me in this passage?
What is challenging?
What is encouraging?
How can this word guide me today?

Want to discuss the readings? Join in the discussion at Faith in :45 after worship or visit the Living Christ Facebook page and join the discussion there. There have been some great comments and questions!

August 26 is
Burrell Schulz Day at Living Christ!

After nearly 20 years of devoted service here at Living Christ, Burrell will be retiring as our music director at the end of August. So we are declaring this last Sunday Burrell Schulz Day, so we can celebrate his faithful service and dedication. You are invited to stay after worship for a luncheon in Burrell’s honor. Please come prepared to share a special memory or story about Burrell.

We need some volunteers to help provide food for the luncheon. A main dish will be provided, but we will need side dishes and salads for the meal. If you are able to provide a dish, please sign up on the clipboard in the welcome area or email Marcia in the office. Marcia Bulleri
