THE BEST SUMMER EVER

We want this to be THE BEST SUMMER EVER AT Conway First Church of the Nazarene.  Throughout the Summer Pastor Tim is challenging the congregation to read through the entire New Testament and take time each day to document their journey through Scripture using the "SOAP" method.  Over the course of the summer we will take time to chronologically ready through the New Testament and journal what SCRIPTURE stands out to us, what OBSERVATIONS we have from our reading, how we can APPLY this truth to our lives and a PRAYER asking for God's help and guidance.  Click the link to download your very own BEST SUMMER EVER Journal,l or stop by the church and pick up your own complimentary copy. Best_Summer_Ever_Study_Guide.pdf

HOW TO USE THIS STUDY GUIDE

This booklet has been created to help you dive into the Word like never before this Summer. The SOAP method will invite you to document what you read in scripture, what observations you make, how you can apply this truth to your life, and how you can pray for God’s guidance in living this out. At the end of the summer you will have an incredible account of all the ways God has spoken to you! Every day has 4 boxes for you to write in.

  • SCRIPTURE

    Each day you will read a lot of scripture. That is a wonderful thing but it makes recall really difficult. As you read through the Bible each day underline or highlight the verses that stand out to you. When you are finished reading pick one verse that stands out to you as significant. Copy that verse in this box and make it a point to keep it in your head and heart throughout the day. At the end of the summer you will be able to look back and see where the Spirit was shining a light as you read through the Word.


  • OBSERVATION

    In this box you will write down what you are observing in the text you have read. What stands out and seems meaningful or significant to you? What common theme do you notice, or what truth seems obvious and important?

  • APPLICATION

    We don’t just read the Bible for information, we read it to be transformed spiritually as we strive to become more and more like Christ. As we read through the text each day we are looking for one concept or truth that God is using to teach us and shape us. Use this box to write down how you can apply the truth of the Word to the reality of your life. Try to stick to just one application. It may be helpful to focus on the scripture you wrote in the first box and ask if there is anything in your life that needs to change to be faithful to the instruction and wisdom of God’s Word. Essentially you are asking, “How will I be different because of what I read today in God’s Word?”

  • PRAYER

    You don’t have the power to transform yourself spiritually. That only comes through the power of the Holy Spirit who is alive within you; teaching you and leading toward God’s will for your life. Use this box to capture a short prayer confessing your need for him, and requesting His help applying the truth you have learned. This is also a great spot to thank Him for how He is working in your life.
