Reading The Bible Out Loud: Genesis to Revelation

UPDATE! WE HAVE ENJOYED READING THE SCRIPTURE OUT LOUD SO MUCH THAT ONCE WE REACHED THE END OF REVELATION, WE WENT BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF GENESIS & STARTED AGAIN! WE ARE NOW ON OUR FOURTH READING THROUGH THE SCRIPTURES.

GET ON BOARD AND JOIN US!

As part of our commitment to the READ Initiative, the Solid Rock Church in Drogheda is reading the entire Bible (Genesis to Revelation) out loud. We believe this prophetic proclamation of the Word will release something mighty in our Church.

The idea is that individuals in our Church pre-book slots in the Prayer Centre (at the rear of the White House that houses our Church Offices). There you find a chart detailing where the last reader left off. You start reading out loud from that point – and when you leave you update the chart ready for the next reader.

This reading started at the beginning of January. Once we got to the end of Revelation, we decided we enjoyed it so much that we went back to the beginning of Genesis and started again! Please note that it is OK to have breaks between readers. Once you pre-book you will be given an access code to enter the Prayer Centre, and you lock it again when you leave.

It’s also OK if two or more people end up being there to read at the same time. That will simply add some fellowship to the mix! You can take it in turns to read.

This vocal reading of the Word will, we pray, provide insights and revelations to those who do the reading. We also believe that many will find the Prayer Centre to be a place of peace and life where they will return often to spend time with God.

“Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.” (Revelation 1:3)

EMPOWERED BY A SHARED VISION

logotipo-kerygma-web

Throughout 2013 we are rallying around our vision and core values. Rays of light, on their own beautiful and illuminating but otherwise puny, becomea a powerful cutting laser beam when they are focussed together to one goal. In the same way we believe that Church offers us the opportunity to unite our faith and aspirations with others to achieve the seemingly impossible.

So, this year, we as a Church will be re-emphasizing the Biblical priorities of Life Change (metanoia), Power (dunamis), Fellowship (koinonia) and Proclaiming the Gospel (kerygma). Join with us this Sunday at 11.15am in Drogheda as we focus our faith on being Proclaimers of the Gospel.
