Everyone is invited to participate in Iowa 99 County Bible Reading Marathon – a continuous reading of the entire Bible, beginning with Genesis and concluding with Revelation, to take place in front of every courthouse in Iowa at the same time. This event will begin on the Courthouse lawn on June 30th at 8:00 a.m. and end July 3rd at approximately 4:00 p.m. leading up to the 4th of July –our nation’s 240th birthday!
No microphone will be necessary as our goal is to simply read the Word of God out loud.
We wish to make this a countywide effort bringing together all interested persons of any age within Clayton County. There are many creative ways to allow everyone to read. In addition to having an adult read for a designated time, you may consider ideas such as:
- Readers can share their time by allowing walk-ups to read a few scriptures.
- Kid or adult groups take 15-minute slots and have several read.
- Parents read a few words to their young children and let the children repeat them back.
- Husbands and wives read together alternating scriptures or split the time.
If you’d like to participate in this exciting event, you may sign up by emailing ccReadTheBible@gmail.com or contact Anne Osmundson at 563.767.3855 or Phyllis Owings at 563.964.2390
