EVANGELICAL HERITAGE VERSION UPDATE
The complete Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV), Old & New Testaments, will arrive, God-willing, in July. Hard-cover copies will be handed out at the door for each household. Copies will be furnished for use at both church and school and initial free copies will be given to grades 3-8 at school as well. We encourage you to continue enjoying various sound translations in your personal study and devotions, such as the King James Version, the English Standard Version, the NIV 84 and others. But we are grateful for the consistency, accuracy and readability which the EHV will provide in the years to come in both our church and school. Thanks to all who have supported the Wartburg Project in the last several years.
