Annual Bible reading marathon scheduled

Jun 21, 2017

All counties in southeast Iowa are taking part in the 2017 Iowa 99 County Bible Reading Marathon, inviting people to read 30-minute or more segments of the Bible out loud beginning June 25 and continuing to July 4.

Volunteer readers of all ages are invited to participate: adults, children, senior citizens, students; all denominations, business people, civic leaders, everyone.

Gov. Kim Reynolds has chosen to continue former Gov.Terry Branstad’s support of this effort by, once again, signing a “Proclamation” for 2017.

This proclamation recognizes the history of biblical principles and the importance of its influence on many of our great national leaders in the development of our nation; and encourages Iowans to join in the 2017 Iowa 99 County Bible Reading Marathon, and to continue reading the Bible in their homes.

For more information, please contact Karen Brownlee, 319-572-8404.
