Rooted in Christ

In 2018 here at St. Matthew's we are going to be doing what we are calling our "Rooted in Christ" Bible reading plan. Each week of the year, we will have five daily readings of the Bible and over the course of the year, we will touch every key part of Scripture. There will be several ways that you can be part of this. We will feature here on our website. We will send out a weekly email with each week's readings, along with some daily reading guides (click here to sign up). We will also send out daily texts with each day's reading and the daily guide (text @39110 to 81010 to sign up) and each day's readings and guides will be part of our mobile app as well. There will be a weekly podcast that will give an overview of what you read, as well as a weekly Facebook live that will show how each week's readings fit into the whole of scripture.

If you've not done so, download our mobile app to follow along on your smartphone, or follow us on social media for the daily readings.

You can see all our podcasts and Facebook Live Videos here on our Media page
