Read the Chronological Bible with Us

We’re halfway through our journey of reading the whole Bible together chronologically as a church family; we’ve heard countless stories of how God is moving through our church, and we are so thankful! Whether you’ve been with us reading since January or just now joining us, it’s never too late to jump in. As we transition from Kings and Kingdoms to the Prophets, prepare for powerful messages of hope, warning, and God’s unwavering love for His people.

Pray for The Hausa People of Nigeria

The largest people group in West Africa is the Hausa, who live in “Hausaland” in Nigeria. They were introduced to Islam through trading with Middle Easterners and have embraced the religion over time. Pray for the spread of the gospel, the well-being of Hausa Christians, their receptiveness to Christianity, the establishment of more churches, and their positive influence in Nigeria.
