Weekly Bible Verse Challenge

From our Synod offices, Chaplain Mark Daenzer, the Director of Worship for the LCMS, is encouraging our churches and members to find unity in the Word of God.  That is where our true unity lies, in the Word of God.  To do that, he is encouraging us to join in his Memory Verse Challenges together. 

Every week, we will post a challenged memory verse.  Take the challenge!  Put God’s Word foremost in your mind and deep in your heart!  Then the Bible goes with you wherever you go!
