Read Through Psalms Together

April 25, 2021 to September 22, 2021

All Day

Read Through Psalms Together
Welcome to Calvary’s “Read Psalms Together “ initiative for adults! Beginning Sunday April 25 we are encouraging every adult associated with Calvary, whether members or guests, to join us in reading the book of Psalms together by reading one chapter per day. The plan is to connect on a weekly basis with 2 or 3 other people of the same gender from your life group. At weekly meetings each person will share insight and application from a selected passage from his/her personal reading. The group will also experience prayer, encouragement, and accountability. This opportunity is not to replace anything a group is doing, but to serve as an additional discipleship opportunity in the context of a small (3-4), gender-specific group.

 

There are some adults and college students who have already been practicing this idea, and the results have been very effective and powerful! So, not only is there great value in a few people getting together for Bible discussion, accountability and encouragement, but the fact that we are all focusing on the same book of the Bible at the same time is powerful as well. Previous initiatives in the life of Calvary Baptist have shown this to be true. The best option for these weekly meetings is to gather in person. However, connecting via Zoom, Text, GroupMe, Email, or other digital media can work as well. We encourage you to incorporate this weekly connection into the normal rhythm of your life. Most people eat lunch every day. Rather than eating alone, have lunch and meet with your group at the same time so that you are not creating a need to make another slot for a time commitment. So will you join us?? Contact Cary Tolar for more details.

 

Read Through Psalms Together: What to Do at Each Meeting

 

1) Share Highs and Lows from the previous week.

2) Recap accountability goals.

3) Share Insight from the weekly Bible reading using the H.E.A.R. acrostic and hear how God is speaking to those in the group (see attachment).

4) Make a plan to practice what you’ve learned (see “Respond” on the H.E.A.R. acrostic) which includes measurable and achievable goals.

5) Hold members accountable to the goals.

6) Have prayer.
