Interim Committee Meetings & Bible Studies

Every month our legislators gather in Charleston for three days of interim committee meetings. Each lawmaker is assigned to one or more committees in order to work on various issues throughout the year.

In these meetings they deal with a variety of topics, many of which will be taken up during next year’s regular session.This month's interim meetings will be held on August 9-11. During the interim meetings, Capitol Commission provides Bible studies for our legislators and elected officials at the capitol. Our studies for this month entitled "Can We Trust the Bible?" from Psalm 119:42 & 56 will be held on Tuesday, August 10.

Please pray for our legislators as they gather for these meetings:

Pray for safety as they travel.

Pray for them as they take this time away from their families and jobs.

Pray for them as they deal with many issues important to our state.

Pray that our Bible study and other aspects of our ministry will be a challenge and encouragement to our leaders.

You can learn more about the legislative interim committee assignments and meetings at the West Virginia Legislature web site.

Interim Bible Study: Can We Trust the Bible?

From this month's interim Bible study at the West Virginia state capitol entitled, "Can We Trust the Bible?":

"There are many who doubt or deny the truth of God’s Word. Some deny the existence of absolute truth altogether. Others criticize the scriptures as perhaps a mixture of truth and error. The presence of other religious writings raises the question, “Is the bible true?” Over the years many have attacked the trustworthiness of the Bible in a variety of ways. The fact is, if the Bible is true, it changes everything."
