Monday Bible Reading
The Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God. It contains the revelation of God. The Bible is a spiritual treasure map that leads Christians to the place where God’s rich wisdom and knowledge are buried. Every time we turn the page, God will speak to us through the Holy Spirit. We invite you to a treasure hunt for God’s blessing. Job said, “I have treasured the words of his mouth more than my daily bread” (Job 23:12).
The Bible Reading Group makes a one-year reading plan. From January to June, we read the Old Testament every Monday. From September to October, we schedule to read the New Testament.
365 Bible Reading
In Matthew 4:4, “Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” The Word of God is the Christian’s spiritual food that comes down from heaven for a solid and healthy Christian’s spiritual life. Therefore, Reading the Bible is not optional; it is a necessity. Suppose you want to grow in the Spirit of God. I invite all of you to come and join our three-chapter Bible reading plan a day.
Weekly Prayer Fellowship
Prayer is essential because it is the first and foremost Christian discipline to become a Spirit-filled disciple of Jesus Christ.
Acts 2:1-4 show how powerfully a prayer group experienced the presence of the Holy Spirit “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place…All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues a as the Spirit enabled them.”
You can spend some private time praying at home, but praying together is a way to experience the power of the Holy Spirit. We welcome prayer warriors to have a prayer fellowship and to experience the works of the Holy Spirit together.

Gospel Q & A
In 2 Timothy 3:16-17, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be throughly equipped for every good work.”
Our church family read the Bible for 365 days according to the yearly schedule. Every first Wednesday of each month, we gather together to share the questions that popped up in our hearts while we read the Bible. All the participants can share their ideas about what they think about answering the question. Sharing our spiritual insights gives us a better understanding of the Bible, and we can experience God from different perspectives.
