We believe the church body should be in scripture on a regular basis. Each month, a passage of scripture is selected for the whole church to read together. That scripture is normally preached on during the month. Church members, the Leadership Team and Life Groups share their experience of Abiding in Christ, focused on the monthly scripture passage.
The Abiding scripture passage for April 2018:
Luke 4:16-21 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
The Rejection of Jesus at Nazareth
When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written.
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.”
