Churches throughout the area, and all believers in God’s Word, are invited to read from God’s Work or to come and hear His word read aloud.

Adams said reader participation has been very supportive, however, there are continuing opportunities to read.

Readers are invited to read in 15-minute time blocks.
“However, there are those who want to read longer,” Adams said. “There are churches, organizations, clubs, neighborhoods and families that read several blocks of time. We appreciation everyone who reads God’s word.

Those who wish to read are invited to sign up at the tent next to the Gazebo or call 566-1538.

The Bible Marathon is not just about reading the Bible, it’s also about hearing the Bible read in an open setting. Both are blessings, Adams said.
