Dear CCC Family,
As the new year started, I encouraged you to develop a habit of spending time with God individually by daily Bible reading and prayer. Of course, many people were already doing that and there are many ways to do it. One that I recommended is the SOAPS method. After reading some of the Bible, you write down a verse(s) of Scripture that was especially meaningful to you. You then write down some Observations about the verse, make some personal Applications, write a short Prayer it, and then chose someone to Share what you wrote with. Of course, there are other ways to spend time with God, but I have found that method helpful. The important thing is to spend time with God personally.
I want to keep the momentum for personal time with God going by having people share what they have written down as they have been spending time with God. I will be asking different people to share in the service what they read one day and what they wrote down about that. You can volunteer if you want. You can share based on whatever method you have been using for your time with God. This is not to be a prepared meditation or talk, but simply reading what you had written down. We will be doing this encourage more people to spend time with God individually each day. If course Sunday worship is very important too so . . .
See you Sunday!
PS The Tuesday night Bible study will resume on February 6.
