Heroes of the Bible

School’s Out Summer Reading Plan 2022

June 16 – August 21

Every summer, New Lifers read through a portion of the Bible together. This summer, we are going to explore some of the the “big names” of the Bible and learn more about them! There are many significant figures in the Bible, and through this study we are going to take a look at 19 of them.

Join the text reminders and encouragement group! Text “Hero” to 703-455990.

Ever feel like you just can’t understand what it says or what it means? Try reading a modern translation such as the CSB, ESV, or NLT. Each translation tries to balance staying true to the original meaning with being readable in today’s English vernacular. We find the ESV to balance these well. The NLT is even easier to read but loses some of the power and depth of meaning found in the ESV.

Whatever translation you chose, the important part is to get in the Bible every day. Before reading ask God to help you to understand what you read. Then sit back, read the daily reading in your Bible or using the links below, and trust God to teach you something about His love for you.
