We’re excited to kick off a new series at MomConnect this year! Have you ever felt like you don’t know how to read your Bible or maybe you have questions about how it all fits together? Maybe there are some questions you have but never felt like you could ask them. Reading the Bible can sometimes seem daunting for all of us. 

We have great news! Join us at MomConnect for:

Bible 101: How to Read and Understand the Bible

For these sessions, we will use Jen Wilkin’s book, “Women of the Word: How to Study the Bible with both our Hearts and our Minds” as a basic resource, plus our Bibles. It is not necessary to have the book, but it’s a great resource for personal bible literacy growth if you’d like to purchase a copy on your own. 

Over the years at MomConnect we have encountered a few comments like the following: 

  • “I wish I knew how the Bible all fit together.”
  • “I never knew that was in the Bible!”
  • “Okay-what does that sentence really mean?” (after reading a passage of scripture)
  • “I don’t feel like I know how to read my Bible for myself.” 
  • “In my Bible study group, I don’t feel like I can ask questions to understand the passage better.” 

Sometimes it can feel like reading our Bibles is just something to check off our to-do list, or a way to help us feel better about whatever circumstances have overwhelmed us that day. But God’s Word is so much more than that. It’s the way God shows us who He is. It’s how He reveals His character, His plan for His people, and most importantly His Son, Jesus. 

Consider this quote by Jen Wilkin on the importance of Bible literacy: “For years I tried to love God with my heart to the neglect of my mind, not recognizing my need to grow in the knowledge of the “I AM”. But I was missing the important truth that the heart cannot love what the mind does not know.” 

Friends, we invite you to walk with us as we journey together toward having more confidence to read our Bibles. Join us at MomConnect this semester as we unpack these practical and life-changing principles together! Invite a friend and register today
