If the Bible is food for our soul, we want to become people who are eating well. Eating Well is a year-long initiative to become a church that is being transformed by scripture. We’ll have Sunday messages and lots of extra content and resources throughout the year.
The season of Lent is a great time to jump in to Eating Well. If you’ve been meaning to start, or started and life got in the way, why not commit to doing the daily reading for the next 6 weeks as we journey through Lent together?
We’ve created a special devotional guide for families to use throughout Lent, including simple, easy-to-process questions that you can read with your kids over dinnertime or bedtime throughout the next six weeks. It also includes a weekly activity that you can try out as a family.

Throughout the next year, we’re inviting our whole church to engage with the Bible on a regular basis. We’ve created a reading plan that will take you through the Gospel of Luke, the book of Acts, and all of the letters by this time next year.
That’s roughly 4 chapters a week, which we’ve broken out over 5 days each week. You are of course welcome to read those four chapters at any pace you’d like — you can do it over several days, or all in one sitting. If you get a little behind it’s easy to catch up. Most of us can read four chapters in less than an hour.
Each week, after we’ve all read the four chapters, the sermon following will be something from one of those four chapters. And in the sermons, we’re going to take some time to show you how we got what we did out of that passage so that you can learn how to do it.
You can start any week — just jump in. There’s no pressure to start from the beginning or to catch up before reading this week’s Scriptures.
We’ve also developed a study guide to help you get the most out of your reading. You can download it from our website.
For each of the five days, we’ve identified something to focus on, something to reflect on, something to respond to, and something to pray.
