Have you started the Mid-Year Challenge?

2020 Mid-Year Challenge

What are you focused on?

Can you believe we’re already halfway through 2020? So far, it’s been a year filled with heaviness and hardship. Fortunately, even though we know we’ll face difficulties in this life, we also know that Jesus promises us rest when we draw near to Him.

“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”


We started the Mid-Year Challenge to help you do exactly that. Complete at least one day of a Plan for 7 days in a row during the month of July, and you’ll earn the 2020 Mid-Year Challenge badge!

This Mid-Year Challenge, Let’s Refocus.

2020 Mid-Year Challenge

What has 2020 looked like for you? For many of us, these past six months have been confusing and disheartening—marked by division, pain, and loss.

If the uncertainty of this year has left you feeling distant from God, it’s not too late to refocus on Him. We may not know what the rest of this year holds, but we can hold onto these truths: that God goes with us, and He will always draw near to us when we seek Him.

That’s why we do the Mid-Year Challenge: to help us refocus our minds on what matters most—God and His Word.

This is why community matters…

Alex was lost. He and his wife had made some bad decisions, and they felt purposeless. But then someone invited Alex to join a YouVersion Bible Plan. Because of this invitation, Alex discovered the power of God’s Word, and he gave his life to Jesus. One year later, his wife did the same thing.

“Now, I am the leader of a YouVersion Bible Plan group, my wife and I read His Word together every day, and I am still in the same YouVersion Plan group… but they are now my brothers in Christ and dear friends.”
— Alex

Invite Friends

When you invite someone to complete a Bible Plan with you, you’re inviting them to experience the life-changing power of God’s Word.

Today, start a Plan with Friends and see what God does through your faith-filled decision to pursue Him while making disciples.

Your conversations could change everything.

Can a conversation change your life?

Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone.


In a world filled with hurt and heartache, it’s never been more important to show empathy and compassion. But as we talked about last week, if we want to see healing and restoration, then empathy and compassion have to involve action. And one of the ways we can put compassion into action is by creating a safe space for meaningful discussions.

That’s why we created Plans with Friends, to help facilitate those conversations. Simply pick a Plan and select “With Friends” to invite others to join you. Our prayer is that these grace-filled conversations will enrich your life and help change our world.
