LifeWay to provide free Bibles this summer

NASHVILLE — This summer thousands of Bibles will ring up for free at the registers of LifeWay Christian Stores in an effort to help local churches take the Word of God into their communities.

The initiative is called “Share the Word. Together.” Churches of any denomination within 15 miles of a LifeWay store can sign up for a designated week in which each member of the church can visit the local LifeWay to pick up a free Christian Standard Bible. Church members will then give the Bibles away in their communities, start gospel conversations and spark invitations to weekend worship services or Bible study, said Thom Rainer, president and CEO of LifeWay.

Churches are encouraged to sign up for a week that overlaps with an existing event on their church calendar, such as Vacation Bible School, promotion Sunday or back-to-school kickoff events. Spanish Bibles also will be available for use on a limited basis for churches that designate “Spanish” in the denomination field when filling out the form.
