Walk Through the Word
One-Year New Testament
Being a part of Blackshear Place is about life change. One way we strive for God to change us is through the daily reading of His Word. In 2013, Pastor Jeff has challenged us to join him in reading through the New Testament. We will be providing a number of ways you can be involved in this life-changing challenge.
Ways you can be involved in the Walk Through The Word one-year New Testament reading challenge.
1. Get the Walk through the Word devotional. This New Testament devotional book will guide you through daily readings and give you life-application through the devotionals by some of America’s greatest preachers.
2. Pick-up the the free New Testament reading card available at all welcome desks. We’ve taken the daily readings from the Walk through the Word devotional and made a simple checklist card for you to use.
3. Follow the weekly reading plan listed in the worship folder. Each week, the worship folder will list the New Testament selection of reading for the week. You can simply use your worship folder to follow the reading plan.
