Looking to start off the New Year intentionally? Seeking to put into action new behaviors that will help you grow in Christ? Then, have we got a resource for you!
d365 devotions are written by ministers, professors, students, teachers, missionaries, denominational leaders, and others who work with and care for students. Typically, an author writes on a single theme for one week. In these devotions, you will read honest struggles and questions, all in the context of real faith. As you read the thoughts of the writers, think about your own response to the scripture for the day. Let the writer’s words serve as background for your own conversation with God.
Instrumental music is available for your devotional experience. You can start the music by selecting the music notes at the bottom left of the screen and adjust the volume as needed.

Five Steps in Each Daily Devotion:
Each day of the week, we begin our devotions with a powerful statement intended to help you pause and prepare to listen to what God is saying. The “Pause” statement will remain the same throughout the week.
You will find selected scripture verses for each day. Unless otherwise noted, scriptures are from the Common English Bible.
The devotional is designed to help you think and interact with the scripture. Let the writer’s words guide your reflection on the scripture.
The prayer is a starting point for you to begin your own personal conversations with God.
Each devotion concludes with a blessing intended to send you out, remembering what you have learned, guided by the Spirit. The “Go” statement will also remain the same throughout the week.
Join us in 2021 for a year of jubilee...a time of freedom and celebration with EIGHT FREE REACH Network Groups for you to join! This past year has been both challenging and isolating. REACH Network Groups can be the perfect balm. The 2021 groups will meet monthly, for the most part, via Zoom. So, there’s no travel time involved.
REACH Groups get pastors and church leaders plugged in to:
A deeper dive on a specific subject
A subject matter expert(s) leading the group
Peers who want to focus and move forward in that area
Ideas, information and advice
Feedback, support and camaraderie
And, most importantly, accountability
“REACH Network groups provide long-term connections and great resources. You get fed and you get excited. But you have to bring your church with you.” – Rev. Jackie Raineri, Clare UMC
