ONE WORD 2020

Instead of New Year Resolutions, what if you could pick ONE WORD for the whole year? A word that centered you, pointed you to Jesus, found its root in Scripture, and allowed you to take one small step toward the goals you feel God has called you to accomplish.


Day Spring offers a 7 question quiz to help you find a word for 2020. Take it here.



First Pres has also created a sheet of words from which you can choose a word, as well as, a list of bible verses with highlighted word options. Find the word list hereFind the bible verse list here.
