A BRIEF EXPLANATION
Welcome! We hope you are here to join us on our new group project – reading the Bible together.
It really couldn’t be simpler -the whole Bible, from September to May. It may sound intimidating but it really isn’t – give me a second to explain why. Six chapters a day of reading (no reading on Sundays and a few catch up days here and there), and you will have read the whole Bible in 9 months. The reading should average between 10-20 minutes a day.
This is a guilt free challenge – we want you to join us in reading our Bibles and establishing good Bible reading habits that will bless you for years to come. If your Bible reading history is hiding somewhere in a cupboard of guilt in your life – this program is for you! If you are a well established Bible reader but would enjoy accountability, and fellowship around your Bible reading, this program is for you!
The program is very easy to follow – we have come up with many ways to help keep you on track and you can chose any or all of the following:
– Register your email on this page to get a weekly reminder of the plan
– Print out the reading plan and bookmarks to keep in your Bible and mark off what you have read
– Join in on our live webinars (led by Becky Pliego) for encouragement and accountability
– Download the app “Bible Reading Plan” which can pair with a Bible app (such as You Version) so you can read on your phone or listen to an audio version (directions below).
We have done our best to make this program one that will be a great blessing to you, and we so hope that you will join us!
