BASIC Training Discipleship Path


In 2021 we are inviting the congregation to join us in a discipleship path to nurture people as they grow in their Christian faith. The first phase of this journey is all about the Bible. The options for participation include:

· Daily Bible reading plan beginning January 1, for exploring scripture on your own and with a Facebook Group for discussion, thoughts, and questions

· Wednesday morning zoom Bible study beginning January 13 10 a.m. led by Pastor Travis.

· Weekly 30-minute video class, with a link in First Weekly and available on YouTube, each Wednesday beginning January 13 that will give an overview of the Bible.

Each of these offerings are designed to reach those who may have years of reading and studying scripture and those who might be diving into the Word for the first time.

The daily reading plan will include a passage each day that you can read and contemplate on your own or you can join a new Facebook Group for First Lutheran that will be titled First Lutheran Daily Reading Group. In this group, the reading will be posted each day and we can share thoughts, questions, and ideas that relate to the scripture. This will be a safe space to explore what the scripture meant in the time and context that it was written, what it means for us now, and how we might apply it in our lives today.

We look forward to beginning this journey with each of you.

  1. I’m enjoying this daily Bible reading plan. I’m not on Face Book but it’s a great way for someone who hasn’t read the Bible to start doing it.
