1.3 Summer Reading Challenge for the Whole Family! June 16-July 25

There are two reading lists for the age groups—ages 9 through 12, and age 12 through adult. There will be giveaways from time to time, so keep checking in.

The theme is Time Travel. Time was created by God, is upheld by God, and even now is being redeemed for His purposes. Many of the selected stories for this summer will involve the excitement of visiting another age. Often, heroes and heroines will be given the dramatic task of saving the innocent or redeeming wrongs of the past. As you read, take note of how all that drama relates to why God created time, and what it means for us as created beings.

While reading, you’ll be exploring Jesus as Time Maker, Time Traveler, and Time Redeemer. See the details at the website.
