Bible readers needed

Friday, March 30, 2012

This year's 3rd Annual Bible Reading Marathon will be one of many simultaneously going on across the nation. The goal is to encourage people of all ages from all over Carroll County to join together in having all of God's word read aloud on the Berryville Public Square, starting on Sunday, April 29, with Genesis 1:1 and continuing through Revelation until the entire Bible is read aloud, culminating on Thursday, May 3, the National Day of Prayer.

The International Bible Reading Association Prayer is for the marathon to cause people to realize how important reading the entire Bible is for them personally and for the nation. The marathon will celebrate faith by proclaiming the importance of the Bible; celebrate the religious freedom enjoyed in this nation; and share in the hope that all for who Christ died will be saved.

Through event promotions, 365 readers will volunteer to read for a 15 minute block during the Bible Reading Marathon. Many will pray with people in attendance, provide refreshments and be willing listeners to those volunteering to read.

Looking for a way to help? Consider adding support by volunteering to read a short portion from the Bible during the marathon.

Individuals, businesses, organizations and churches may help by making a financial contribution.
