What is IMMERSE?
IMMERSE is a church-wide Bible reading experience designed to function like a book club. Weekly video introductions, reader-friendly layouts, and daily audio readings help people engage with larger sections of the Bible as a whole. Working through an entire book of the Bible in a short period of time helps people better understand the bigger story and the author’s main points. And weekly book-club-style discussion helps everyone get more out of the readings.
When will it start?
St. Luke’s is doing a 4-week campaign starting September 12, 2021. We'll cover half of the New Testament, including the writings of Peter, John, and Matthew.
