2019 Scripture Memory
In 2019 one area we would like to grow in as a church is scripture memory. The Word of God is indispensable in the Christian life. It is through God’s Word that we learn about who God is, who we are, what the gospel is, and how to live out the Christian life. God’s Word is living and active and it can powerfully change your life. This is why memorizing God’s Word is one of the best ways for you to grow and strengthen your relationship with the Lord.
Therefore, our goal for 2019 is to memorize one verse per week (52 verses total). If this task feels too daunting for you to tackle, we would encourage you to try and memorize 2 per month (26 verses total) or one per month (12 verses total). For at the end of the day no matter how many verses you memorize the most important thing is that we all are growing in God’s Word together and letting the word of Christ dwell richly in us.
In order to accomplish this goal we are using the Fighter Verse program through Desiring God Ministries for our scripture memorization. You can download a list of the verses that we will be memorizing below and also find some helpful tools to aid your memorization.
