Interim Bible Study: "Treasuring God's Word through Study"

From this month's interim Bible study at the West Virginia state capitol:

"If we look at God's Word simply as a rule book or a roadmap, we will study it in bits and pieces merely looking for rules and principles. If we see it as the grand story of redemption we’ll look to see how it points to Jesus and what He has done for us."

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 "Treasuring God's Word through Study" from Psalm 119 selected verses and Deuteronomy 17:14-20 will be held on Tuesday, September 14. We are also distributing a 90-day New Testament Reading Guide to encourage our legislators and leaders to develop the habit of reading God's Word.

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.
