This week we will start a reading plan that will take us chronologically through the Bible. We will read through the Scriptures in the order in which events occurred. Hopefully, as you read God’s Word it will come alive to you and you will see God in a fresh way. May God reveal Himself to you in a powerful way as you meditate on the Bible. We will start in Genesis and work our way to Revelation. May God do mighty things in the body of Rocky Creek as we think on Him. On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.
