Synod-wide scripture read

Join your siblings in Christ from all around the Eastern ND Synod in a synod-wide Scripture read! Together, we will dwell in the words and stories of the book of Acts throughout January & February 2024. Each day, you are encouraged to read one chapter of Acts, and every Sunday afternoon we will gather via Zoom for conversation with Dr. Eric Barreto, Professor of New Testament at Princeton Seminary. This event kicks off with an introductory Zoom session on January 7, and our reading schedule begins January 8. We hope you'll consider joining us!
