A Bible reading marathon has been going on since 12:00 p.m. Thursday afternoon at the Glory of God Ministries in Springfield.
Pastor W. Faye August began the Bible reading marathon at noon. She expects it to take 30 hours before completing the 1,246-page Bible cover to cover.
Pastor August reads for an hour. Others may spend minutes reading one biblical passage during the hours ahead.
She has no doubt the momentum will continue with many people participating in the bible reading marathon.
“We have people coming from other churches, other denominations. It’s not just for the Pentecostal, It’s for the Catholic, Presbyterian, we have them coming from the Methodist,” said Pastor August.
The Glory of God Ministries is located at 584 Page Boulevard in East Springfield. Pastor August said the doors will remain open during what she expects to be a 30-hour Bible reading marathon.
She urges people to come by an participate, even reading just one Bible verse. Her two previous Bible reading marathons lasted an estimated 27 hours each.
