November 08, 2011
Scripture 66, an around-the-clock public reading of the entire Bible, will start Nov. 11 at 3 p.m. and end Nov. 14 at 9 a.m. in the campus’ main gazebo. Bethel students, faculty and staff will volunteer to read in 15-minute intervals during the event.
Bethel’s spiritual life team will be sponsoring the event in hopes of expressing the importance of scriptural reading to Bethel and the surrounding communities.
