I hope you will join me in 2015 and read the Bible through in a year. On pages 19 and 20 of the ARP Magazine, you will find a prayer calendar featuring daily scriptures that follow a chronological reading of the Bible. You will also find ARP events listed and either a church, retired minister, or former Synod employee to pray for each day. I hope you will join me in this challenge to make 2015 the best yet. The ARP Magazine is available free online through this site and our website www.arpmagazine.org. Please share with your family and friends to let them know of this great resource. Happy New Year!
First ARP Church in Gastonia, NC is hosting a 10-day Holy Land Tour in 2015, just a few weeks before Palm Sunday and Easter. This trip will be lead by a Christian Tour Guide, and Dr. Jeff Morrison (Associate Pastor at First ARP Church) will serve as the spiritual leader of this trip. With a significant contingent from First ARP Church already committed to this trip, we would like to extend an invitation to our fellow ARPs to join us for this special spiritual journey. On this tour, you will be able to walk in the footsteps of Jesus when he ministered in Israel some 2,000 years ago. You will also find that the Bible will come alive as familiar names and places take on a new depth as you see them with your own eyes. If interested, you need to reserve your space for this trip as soon as you can as the trip will probably close out during January. Travelers can still be added, subject to seat availability and reasonable air fare.
To learn more about this exciting trip, see the accompanying flyer or contact Mike Foster (Elder at First ARP Church) at 704-460-5324.
