Out of the Pittsburgh Convention, MCUSA found a growing interest among many in the area of Christian Formation—specifically, our knowledge and use of the Word of God. They found people hungry for ways to apply God’s Word to their churches and communities. Out of this came the idea for MCUSA churches around the country to embark on the 12 Scripture Project! At the core of it is a simple idea:
Ask individuals, couples, small groups or friends to pull together a list of Scriptures that embody the mission, identity or hopes & aspirations of your church community and its members. What Scriptures form us as a community, give us vision and purpose, tell us who we are?
