Read Scripture with us!

At MRC we believe that the Bible is the very Word of God—it’s Living, it’s True, it changes who we are and it changes what we do. We believe that as God speaks to us through His Word, the Holy Spirit shapes and forms us to live and love more like Jesus.

The Year of Biblical Literacy is our initiative to be deeply immersed and thoughtfully engaged in Scripture—individually and communally—so that we may know and experience the presence, character, and way of Jesus.

Biblical literacy has fallen, even though general literacy has been on the rise in society at large. The Year of Biblical Literacy is designed to guide people through the practice of reading the Bible, a practice that our generation has de-prioritized and/or regarded as too difficult. But the Bible is the unified narrative that leads to Jesus and has profound wisdom for the modern world.

We’d love for you to join us as we Read Scripture together!
