Daniel Bible Reading Challenge
Use this challenge sheet filled with a variety of activities and Bible reading extensions. Some activities may be particularly suited for children and families, while others may be suited for adults and teens – there is something for everyone. Each activity collects a certain number of points with a goal of 1000 points. (Activity details are below.)
One of the best parts of a challenge is doing it together. Find another family to do it with, or involve your Sunday School or CYC. You can also share your thoughts, favourite verses, quotes, reviews, etc in “Sisters Bible Study” on Facebook or “readthebiblechallenge” on Instagram with the hashtag #psalmstomalachi and #2021readthebiblechallenge!
