When does the challenge start?
The Bible Challenge launched on January 9, 2022, but you can join the challenge at any time. We encourage one another within each new book of the Bible we study.
What do I have to do?
Do I have to do this with a group?
No, but it will help you learn more about scripture and maybe even hear something from God through others that didn’t occur to you alone. We highly recommend it.
Do I have to share my journals publicly?
It’s totally up to you, whether you log your journaling privately, or share it for the rest of our community to see. Either way, reading some of the public journal entries that are shared in the app can be a great way to gain even more insights about the Scripture & to experience the Bible Challenge together as a community. Your journals will still count, even if you choose not to share them publicly.
How much time will this take?
Each day a chapter from the current book of the Bible we’re reading will be available in the app. Dive in as often as you can throughout the week. If the Bible is totally new, try one day a week—but you’re most likely to experience big gains when you engage 4 or more times per week.
How do I do this with a group?
Your group can use the Weekend Follow Up questions in the App as a weekly discussion tool.
What is the Field Guide?
These printed guides give the essential context behind the book—who wrote it, the original historical context, themes, structure, and all that good stuff. The guides help you understand what you're reading even more.
How do I get a Field Guide?
I ordered my Field Guide but haven’t received it.
It can take over a week to process and ship orders. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you ordered your guide over a week ago and we’ll check the status. The fastest way to receive a field guide is to stop by any Crossroads location during open hours. Here is a site list.
How do I get a sticker?
If you read in the Crossroads App at least once a week for the entire series we'll be mailing you a sweet sticker to commemorate your progress. Way to go!
What if I read a paper bible and journal in a notebook?
We dig it. Contact us at email@example.com and let us know how you’ve been progressing. We’ll arrange for a sticker to be mailed to you or you can pick it up at a Crossroads site.
