A Word from the President
Greetings to you during this challenging and unprecedented time in our country and around the world. Things continue to change daily, with new restrictions and precautions put in place to disrupt the spread of COVID-19. Our nation’s routines and work also have been disrupted in ways we could not have imagined just a few weeks ago.
The ministry of Scripture Union is no exception. We have been challenged as a staff and volunteer team to find new ways of working together and delivering God’s Word - so needed in these days – in a way that limits person-to-person contact in this season. Yes, our ministry is shifting, but not shaken. Our mission and vision remain unchanged.
We remain committed to providing opportunities for children, youth and adults to explore the Bible, respond to Jesus and grow in faith and to providing training and partnership to help churches and others do the same.
Please pray for us and with us as we seek God’s direction for ways to reach even more people through pivoting our face-to-face outreach programs to creative digital and online delivery platforms. We are joined together with our members and donors in this work and trust that God will “supply every need according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
Thank you for visiting our website. We give thanks to God for you.

As global concern about the current COVID-19 outbreak grows, our team is taking necessary precautions to safeguard the health of our staff and community. We are implementing a telework system that will allow us to receive checks and donations and continue to ship Bible engagement resources.
If you have recently made a gift or purchased product online, we thank you for your generosity. Please understand that during this unprecedented time, the mailing of acknowledgments and shipping of products will take longer than usual to process. Any voicemails left for us will be returned as soon as possible.
As many of our nation’s children are home from school and spending more time than ever on their screens, consider downloading the FREE app, Guardians of Ancora, that will help them engage with God’s Word. The app is free for all of your favorite mobile devices and is available for download on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore. Find out more here.
Please join with us in prayer for the many students who will be affected by the closing of their after-school PrimeTime programs.
Various Scripture Union movements around the world have been significantly impacted by COVID-19. Please pray for the entire global SU community, as we pray that our resources can be a source of comfort for you as we face this global crisis together.
