In Main Street @ Hayward Wesleyan we focus on a Bible verse or a set of verses each month. Instead of trying to have students memorize a verse every week, we spend a whole month focused on one set of verses.
For November 2014, we chose Luke 9:23-24 in the NIV:
“If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.
“For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”
