Family Bible Challenge Website Offers...
Each Sunday, families will receive an email identifying a new passage that they are asked to read together as a family, reflect upon, and discuss. The website will provide the passage and the questions. You just have to make the time.
The “challenge” is to engage your family with Sacred Scripture. There is no contest. There are no rules. There is, however, the great benefit of falling in love with Jesus through the power of the Good News found in the Bible you will receive.
The videos are provided through a partnership with The Bible Project. The reflection and trivia questions are the work of generous volunteers and the staff of The Leadership Institute.
Family Bible Challenge welcomes all the faithful to our adventure and hope you enjoy the weekly reflections and quizzes.
Will your family accept the Bishop’s challenge?
