All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. (ESV)
We love to read the Bible! Every semester we like to have Bible Reading Challenges to encourage each other to read the Bible in a consistent way with companions. Please read the terms of the challenge below, find a partner, and begin reading. Prizes will be awarded at our end of the semester celebration dinner. Last school year we finished the New Testament and made a lot of progress through the Old Testament. We will be using a website called biblechallenges.com. The site will email you that days verses and allow you to check off each days portion from your email. Click the link to the current challenge Christian Students ATL Mark or Christian Students ATL Samuel to get signed up and either create or join a group. You can join either challenge or do both challenges simultaneously.
Guidelines for the Challenge:
- Purpose: To build up a daily habit of reading the Bible.
- The challenge is to read at least one chapter of the Bible each day to complete the Gospels in the Fall semester. We will do this one book at a time to give more people a way to enter if they miss the start date or fall off during the semester.
- This must be done in groups of two or more people. Rewards will be given to those groups with the highest consistency! (You may read more than one chapter each day, but only one chapter per day can be counted for the purpose of this challenge. If you’d like to read more than a chapter a day, you can read 1 chapter per day from Mark and create another challenge for your additional reading.)

- Feel free to create your own challenge if you want to read another section of the Bible. You can be in as many challenges as you want, but can only be in one group within a challenge.
- And lastly, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…” (Colossians 3:16)
