Immerse: Messiah

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 in September covering the writings of Luke and Paul (about half of the New Testament!).  
      • September 8th: Luke
      • September 15th: Acts and 1&2 Thessalonians
      • September 22nd: 1&2 Corinthians, Galatians, Romans
      • September 29th: Philemon, Colossians, Ephesians, Philippians, 1&2 Timothy, Titus
