Engage the Bible is a Book of Faith Initiative of the North Carolina Synod.
In an effort to immerse people in the stories of the Bible; the stories of our faith, the synod offers opportunities for engagement with Scriptures.
Take a look at these opportunities and jump right in!
The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me…The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me…—Martin Luther
Summer Bible Reading Plan
Our synod has enjoyed reading books of the Bible together during Engage the Bible's Summer Reading Plan. During Summer, 2021, we are reading “3 Preachy Prophets: Amos Joel, & Hosea.” We began reading together on Sunday, July 4.

Reading #14 | Jul 18, 2021
So much of Hosea relies on the metaphor of faithless spouses who can’t help themselves from being faithless.
Reading #2 | Jul 6, 2021
I could feel my teeth clenching and my stomach churning, as the words of the LORD through Hosea were offering condemnation to Israel, represented as a woman—an unfaithful woman—and not just unfaithful, but a whore! Talk about misogynistic, I thought and felt.
"Tell It!" Video Contest
This annual contest for youth groups of the synod encourages creativity and digging into the Word. Choose a Bible story and then, "Tell It!" The pandemic altered plans for the 2021 contest. We look forward to offering "Tell It!" again in 2022.
A Story for All Ages
Prepared by the synod's Engage the Bible Task Group to help congregational Christian education committees evaluate their programs. It provides a framework based on age-appropriate benchmarks for Bible stories and biblical concepts and can be an effective tool in fine-tuning your Christian education.
