B90 - Read the Bible in 90 Days
4:30 - 5:30pm every Saturday evening beginning January 16
A Personal Goal
Is reading the Bible on your bucket list? Is it one of your New Year’s resolutions? Is reading the Bible something you want to do yourself instead of listening to other people interpret it for you? After all, the Bible has been a “best seller” since the first century, with parts of the Old Testament much older than that! If the answer to this question – do you want to read the Bible – is “yes,” you are not alone. 75 million Americans have expressed the same desire to read the Bible.
The premise is simple – you read the Bible like you would read a novel. Just like with a novel, you will meet “good guys” and “bad guys” and you will start to see themes and a “story” develop. You don’t get every detail when you read a novel, but you get the themes and the story. When you read the Bible like a novel, you are not going to get every detail either, but you will get the themes and the story!
How B90 Works
The Bible in 90 Days is a group-oriented Bible reading curriculum, which helps people attentively read the entire Bible — from cover to cover — in 90 days. Participants read 12 pages a day in the 90 Days Bible on their own - this typically takes 45 minutes to an hour a day. Then, once a week, participants meet together in a group for discussion and viewing a teaching DVD. Think of the weekly discussion group as being like a book club meeting – there will not be any pressure to attend a church service. You are only committing to 90 days of daily Bible reading and to meet with an informal group of people who have the same goal you have and who are on the same reading schedule as you are. Our group discussions are expected to take between an hour to an hour and a half depending on what we are talking about - but we respect your time so our time together will never exceed an hour and a half. Our weekly discussion times will give every participant in our group a chance to share questions and insights with others and to consider an overview of the previous week’s reading from a short DVD summary presentation.
How To Get Involved
Are you interested? If so, commit to attending one meeting only – an informational session that will be held at NSCofC from 4:30 – 5:30 PM on Saturday, January 16th. Please reserve this date and time to attend this information session where you will get all the information you need to make an informed decision on whether you want to proceed or not.
It Only Costs $10
If you do decide to proceed, the B90 materials will be available at the information session for participants to purchase, take home, and then be able to dive right into the reading. The paperback B90 Bible and Participant’s Guide cost $20 if you order from the B90 website but NSCofC will partner with you and cover half the cost - your cost will only be $10! The products are yours to keep, highlight in, add notes in the margins, or whatever you prefer. To have a look at the B90 Bible, the Participant’s Guide, and the general format we intend to use in our discussion groups, you are welcome to visit the B90 website.
All you need to do to get started is to simply bring $10 (cash please) to our January 16 informational session (so you can purchase the B90 Bible and Participant’s Guide, if you desire) and spend some time with us asking questions and getting a feel for what we will be doing together while we all read the Bible together for 90 days!
