Family Ministry Lenten Reading Plan

Published March 18, 2024 by Family Ministry Team
Week 6

Do you ever have trouble paying attention when you read the Bible or pray?

Yeah, we get that. It’s completely “normal.” And we’re offering a way for you to give it a chance, even if it’s usually hard for you. 

For 7 weeks, you’re invited to join us as we read through the gospel of Mark together. Maybe you’ll see that reading the Bible is a great way to deepen your faith. Maybe you’ll learn something new. Maybe by reading Scripture each day, you’ll begin to notice God more.
