A Good Reason for Summer Bible Study

A Good Reason for Summer Bible Study

“Put a candle in the window, ‘cause I feel I’ve got to move, though I’m going, going, I’ll be coming home soon, long as I can see the light” (Credence Clearwater Revival)

There are at least a hundred good reasons to consider God’s Word, to repeatedly search and research the wisdom of the ages, to meditate on passages that keep a hold on our hearts, that serve as an anchor as we wander from day to day.

This is our Bible study plan for May through October:

Wednesday Evenings (May 1 through August 7)

We have four special Wednesday devotionals: Family Camp, Wichita WorkCamp, BLAST, and Teen Camp. When we meet on these Wednesdays, we review good work from different groups in our church family and we give glory to our God for the impact of His Spirit on our lives.

Throughout the summer, we have invited ministers of God’s Word to share their message to Northside. This is an opportunity to hear a fresh voice on Wednesday evenings. Let’s show support for these men and respect for their work with our attendance.

Sunday Mornings (June 2 through October 27)

We will complete our study of Exodus on May 19. Then, after Family Camp, we’ll begin an exciting study of the Gospel of John on June 2. Each book in the Bible has its own purpose and special place in our hearts, but the book of John has the greatest concentration of the actual words and    teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.  In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1.1-5)

The summer months can be a challenge to keep our focus on ‘the light’ in our lives, even though we have big plans once the school year is done. We’ve worked hard and need a break, and we want to make memories with our children while we still have them at the house. God created us for hard work and for leisure and recreation, so please enjoy the upcoming weeks and months. But let’s also keep our eyes on Jesus through the summer.
