An Eight-Week Journey Through the Story of Jesus, His Church, and His Return
The New Testament Challenge is a simple but revolutionary idea. By reading this Bible, which arranges the books with each of the four gospels at the beginning of a group of related books, you gain insights and make connections between books in a way that is both revealing and fascinating. It strips away centuries of added formatting so you can read and enjoy just the Bible text.
The Study Journal provides a 40-day reading plan and journaling pages to record your questions, responses, and insights as you read through the New Testament.
Learning happens best in community, over time. The real power of this experience takes place as you gather, sharing in a book club-style discussion of what stood out to you, bothered you or puzzled you as you read throughout the week. This church-wide program welcomes everyone no matter how much (or little) of the Bible they have already read.

“Fun way to learn, reads easily. Enjoyable!”
Jesus instructed his followers to "abide" in him so they could lead fruitful lives (see John 15:4). The Abide Bible Course will equip you to establish a daily, lifelong habit of abiding in God's Word so you can hear his voice.
In this study, a professor and a pastor—Dr. Phil Collins and Randy Frazee—will walk you through five innovative practices that will take you beyond just reading and help you deeply engage with Scripture in a way that fits your unique personality, learning style and busy schedule. In each session, they explain the practice and walk you through each one—with practical examples—so you can try it out during the upcoming week.
These practices include:
Praying Scripture: pray with the words of Scripture instead of your own
Engage Through Art: looking at works of art to help you see a passage in a new way
Journal: writing out your thoughts and feelings on a passage to give you greater clarity
Picture It: putting yourself into the stories of the Bible to experience them firsthand
Contemplate: deeply reflecting and praying through a passage in God’s Word
