Read Together

The Read Together Initiative will continue with an all-new reading plan in 2020. You are invited to join Bishop Wallace-Padgett and other North Alabama Conference United  Methodist leaders in continuing this meaningful spiritual discipline. The 2020 plan includes readings from both the Old and New Testaments each day. We will continue to maintain our Facebook page for comments and discussions on the daily reading and post weekly podcasts featuring meditations by North Alabama clergy and laity as they reflect on the readings for that week.

Please register your commitment to be a part of the Bishop's Bible Challenge. Through registration, we will be able to provide the materials you need.
