WHAT is Grow in the Word?
It is a commitment for 2018 to incorporate Scripture in our daily lives, using the Bible study tools provided through TheBibleProject.com and a daily study outline on the Read Scripture app or the printed study guide available at the Welcome Center!
WHY read Scripture?
At Covenant Church of Naples, we are committed to growing as fully devoted followers of Christ, equipped for every good work by the Word (2 Timothy 3:17). By the rich dwelling of the Word within us (Colossians 3:16), the Holy Spirit illuminates our path (Psalm 119:105), provides sustenance for our souls (Matthew 4:4) and trains us for righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16).
HOW do I get started?
Make a Commitment | Complete a “Grow in the Word” commitment card (available on Dec. 31st and throughout 2018 in the seat back pocket in the Worship Center) and bring forward on Dec. 31st or Jan. 7th, or place in the offering plate after Jan. 7th.

Not ready to make the leap to read through the whole Bible? That's okay. But commit to begin reading scripture each day and praying for the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
