2019 will be the Year of Scripture in the Northwestern Ohio Synod. What follows is a quick outline of Coming Attractions.

The Year of Scripture will have a 3-fold focus:

  1. Bible Reading as a daily discipline and habit
  2. Bible Reflection to help us become fluent in the language of sacred scripture
  3. Bible Study: to lead us to discover the depths of who God is and the breadth of what God does.

Our Year of Scripture Memory Verse is Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path”.

A Year of Scripture Bible Study will be available on the Synod Website on January 1, 2019. This year’s 6-session study will focus on the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 5-7. Learn how Jesus reads and reflects on Scripture. Hear Jesus’ call that as disciples we are to be hearers and doers of God’s Word. This 6-session Sermon on the Mount Bible study will make a great Lenten Study / Sermon Series.
