We invite you to join Bishop Wallace-Padgett and other North Alabama Conference United Methodist leaders in reading through the Bible in 2019. The Adult Discipleship Team is developing materials and encouragement for those who choose to participate in this venture. In addition to the daily reading schedule, we have created a Facebook page for comments and discussions on the daily reading and produced weekly podcasts featuring meditations by various North Alabama clergy and laity as they reflect on the readings for that week.
We would like to have you 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.
We've created a calendar that makes it easy to navigate your daily reading.
