99 County Bible Reading Marathon

Here is the project I’ve been working on.

It is finished, except for the telling of it.

Revelation 12:11

And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death.

 

Stay tuned. That will be next.

99 County Bible Reading Marathon

A historic event is taking place all across Iowa that will give our community members an opportunity to publicly magnify the Word of God. On April 26th, Governor Branstad signed the 99 County Bible Reading Marathon Proclamation encouraging all Iowans to participate in this momentous occasion. You and your family are invited to participate in the Iowa 99 County Bible Reading Marathon—a continuous reading of the entire Bible, beginning with Genesis and concluding with Revelation, to take place in front of every courthouse in Iowa at the same time. We will be located at the southeast corner of our courthouse in Muscatine. The reading will begin June 30 at 8:00 a.m. and conclude July 3 at approximately 4:00 to6:00 p.m. leading up to the 4th of July — our nation’s 240th birthday!

We are seeking 320 community volunteers to help read the Bible at the Muscatine County Courthouse over the course of these four days in 15-MINUTE INCREMENTS. You do not need to prepare or bring anything. We will supply all that you need…just bring yourself! A podium, Bible and canopy tent will be on site for the readers, along with a Team Captain who will provide any needed assistance. No microphone will be necessary as our goal is to simply read the Word of God out loud.

We wish to make this a countywide effort bringing together ALL Christians and interested persons of any age within Muscatine County. There are many creative ways to allow anyone to read. In addition to having an adult read for a designated time, you may consider ideas such as:
• Readers can share their time by allowing walk-ups to read a few scriptures.
• Kid or adult groups take 15-minute slots and have several read.
• Parents read a few words to their young children and let the children repeat them back.
• Husbands and wives read together alternating scriptures or split the time.
