The Bible Project

 

 
 
 

How many things matter enough to do every day?  Is the Bible one of them? 

 
 

If an entire church were to read the Bible together every day for a year, would it matter? Could it change us and the way we experience the world?

 
 

Could it change the world?

 

The heart behind the Bible Project is that everyone at ECC would read scripture for themselves and experience God in ways they never have before. It's an invitation to be surprised, inspired, convicted and empowered by God's living Word  by a God who still speaks.   

 

 

What is it?  Just give me the nuts and bolts, please.

 

 
It is:  
  • A daily reading plan that will take you through the entire Bible in exactly one year starting January 1, 2018.  

  • An opportunity to read the Bible along with your ECC Staff and others participating in the Bible Project, all at the exact same pace.  

  • A challenging, yet zero-guilt approach to reading the Bible together.  Miss a day?  Skim or skip ahead to the day everyone is on.  Plus, each new book of the Bible is a new beginning and chance to dive back in. 

  • An invitation to get to know your ECC Staff and listen in as they reflect on scripture.  Justin, Terri, Tom, Chuck, and Craig will be taking turns contributing to the weekly Bible Project Blog with personal reflections on a scripture from that week.  

  • An experiment.  What will happen to your life when you read and listen for God's voice every day?  You decide.  Try it for 21 days and find out.
