Be enriched by joining our reading plan for 2024
Click the box below to access the 2024 reading plan. We will be using the Chronological Order of Bible Events schedule as designed by backtothebible.org. This plan allows us to read the events of the Bible as they occurred chronologically. For example, the Book of Job is integrated with Genesis because Job lived before Abraham. We hope that in following this plan, the reader will come to a greater understanding of the order in which the scriptures were most likely written. "My son, if you will receive my words And treasure my commandments within you, Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding; For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding; If you seek her as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." (Proverbs 2:1-6)
Click the box below to access the 2023 reading plan. We will be using an adapted version of Robert Murray M'Cheyne's Bible Reading Calendar. This schedule will allow the individual to read the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice within the year. As we follow this plan, let us all remember Psalm 119:9-16: "How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes! With my lips I declare all the rules of your mouth. In the way of your testimonies I delight as much as in all riches. I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word."
Click the box below to access the 2022 reading plan. We will begin with Genesis 1:1 and follow the scriptures straight through to Revelation 22:21. The weekly readings will be used each Wednesday night in the "Reading Through the Bible Discussion" Class that will meet in Classroom #103. We encourage everyone to participate remembering that "All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
Click the box below to access the 2021 reading plan. Our goal for our congregation is to be saturated in the word of God. This year, we are following the "Read the Gospels in One Month" and "30 Days With Jesus" Bible Reading plans. They will alternate each month. We will do the "Gospels in One Month" during the months of January, March, May, July, September and November. We will do the "30 Days With Jesus" during the months of February, April, June, August, October and December. We are sure that following these plans will bring us to a better knowledge and understanding of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ during this new year.
Click the box below to access the 2020 reading plan. We followed the Blue Letter Bible Historical reading plan. "Have you ever wondered what it would have been like to read the Old Testament in ancient Israel? Or, the New Testament as the books were written? In this plan, the order of the Old Testament readings is very similar to Israel's Hebrew Bible, progressing from Law to Prophets to Writings. The New Testament ordering is based upon research regarding the order in which the books were authored. Although this research is not conclusive, it may offer helpful insights to your Bible reading."
