Welcome to the 2017 Bible Book Challenge! This is the nineth year of the challenge where local churches, Bible study groups, and even families engage in a friendly competition, by studying a Bible book using an ECS Ministries Bible study courses. The challenge this year is using The Book of Acts.
It tells how the gospel made its way westward until at last it reached Rome. It is a book of people and places. You will find this study simple yet stimulating and satisfying. It is a fast-moving survey of those stirring events which changed everything.
Get a team together of at least 5 people who commit to reach the finish line. Check out the invitation poster and the Rules and Guidelines detailed below. Then register your team for the Bible study and participate in the challenge!
"A Group Self Study"
A structured learning opportunity of a group self study through a book of the Bible. However no one has to study alone! This friendly challenge is to encourage churches, Bible study groups, and even families to compete for the highest overall score on their exams.
Last year, from all across the country, over 1,000 people accepted the challenge to study the Bible using one of Emmaus Correspondence Schools’ Bible study courses. With encouragement from the head office, you to benefit from group accountability, friendly competition with other teams, spiritual feedback on exams, personal completion certificates, and several live events there has never been a better time to join the challenge.
This year we will be studying Acts, by R. E. Harlow. We have divided the course into 3 segments of four lessons each. Teams will submit them together for grading and then we’ll return them promptly to you. This year teams will also have access to a group study guide that can used conjunction with each chapter of the course. The challenge begins in January and conclude in April.
It will be a blessing to study God’s Word together. We are praying for you to gather a team who are hungry to know more of our Savior, and who will challenge each other to be faithful in their study. Teams are made up of at least 5 members. To begin, gather participants and pick a coordinator (who will communicate with our office and distribute team materials).
