Summer Scripture Memorization
Summer is here…
and with it a chance to read a good book, visit the beach, take a vacation, or just relax outside on a warm summer evening. But what about making this a summer to commit to sharing the gospel with friends and neighbors? And one of the best ways to equip yourself to share is to memorize a few verses that clearly and succinctly present the saving message of the gospel.
Join the whole church as we every two weeks we’ll memorize one of six verses that clearly communicate God’s plan for salvation through the Two Ways To Live method. One of the greatest joys we can experience as believers is to share the life changing message of the gospel, join us in equipping the church for that awesome task!
