Reading the Bible in 2013
Almost 16 months ago, we began the process of intentional and consistent reading of the scriptures. As the year began, hundreds of our congregation (and community) committed to read the Bible each day. So we want to hear from those who made that commitment at the first of the year. We want to recognize you the last Sunday of the year. Call 704-633-0431 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Angel Tree Ministry
Please sign up for this important ministry to children who have at least one parent in prison. You can sign up in Sunday School or by contacting Elaine Carlton (email@example.com) or Pete Teague (firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-202-2188). See First Family Newsletter for more information.
Outside Events Policy
Please remember that advertisements of any activities, drives, concerts, and promotions not directly related to First Baptist’s ministries must be approved in advance by the Church Council. Such activities are only promoted as space allows in our publications; and posters are restricted to the Community Events bulletin board near the Fellowship Hall.
Reader's Guide to the Bible:
Chronological Reading Plan
Order by calling Rod at the church office, 704-633-0431.
This reader's guide is your companion for reading through the Bible chronologically in one year, beginning in January 2013.
As you read Scripture in suggested daily segments, this guide will offer brief comments that will help you understand what you read, identify the significance of Bible characters, places, and events. You will recognize how each passage fits in the grand drama of the Bible.
The Story of Scripture is Your Story!
