The Word Bible reading plan is a chronological 100-day guide that focuses on 50 pivotal Old Testament readings and 50 pivotal New Testament readings. 

As we go through “The Word” series, our Sunday sermons will focus on the passage for that day.  During the week, our church will be reading through the rest of the passages to gain a fuller understanding of the grand narrative of Scripture. In addition, we have a Bible study for adults and students on Wednesdays to go along with the study.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

As you go through this reading plan, here are some things to consider:

  1. Pray.  Pray that God will speak to you through his Word before you begin.
  2. Plan.  Your schedule can get hectic.  Plan when you will read and set yourself up for success.
  3. Partner.  Find someone who can keep you accountable.  Partner together with a friend or your family to keep each other on track.
  4. Persist.  Don’t quit if you miss a day or a week.  If you missed yesterday, don’t let that hinder you from today. Persist in reading!
  5. Present.  Don’t keep all you are learning to yourself.  Present a truth you learned through a conversation, letter, text, social media post, etc. Learn to present what you are learning to others!
  6. Prepare.  As you learn, begin preparing yourself regarding what you will read after this plan ends.  If you stay consistent, you are developing a habit that you don’t want to lose.

We will make weekly posts for reminders of the Bible reading on our site and app, you can download a printed booklet of The Word Bible Reading Plan Handout, or you can see the entire plan below.
