Summer Bible Jam is an annual quest that we take as a church that is intended to strengthen personal Bible reading and to deepen our love for and enjoyment of the Scriptures. It has 3 discipleship aims:
- To fight Biblical Illiteracy!
- To stir up an enjoyment of Scripture
- To normalize Christian conversations about the Bible
As pastors we believe strongly in the preaching of God’s Word and we often recommend various books and resources—but there is no substitute for what takes place in our lives, when we personally encounter God through His revealed Word! Without a personal study and prayer life, we simply will not grow sufficiently in our discipleship.
Over the past few summers, Summer Bible Jam has sought to impart understanding of how every Bible story is vitally connected to God’s One Great Story (Bible Jam 2016), how to read the different types of books in the Bible (Bible Jam 2017), how to meditate on Scripture and encounter God (Bible Jam 2017), and how to develop regular reading habits (Bible Jam 2015).
Bible Jam 2018 will feature how to do a ‘character study’ in Scripture. It will help us to see how God is telling His great story through our little lives! …how names of obscure individuals like David and Sarah and Jeremiah have become ‘household’ names—because God was revealing Himself through them!
