Knowing & Growing Together

Scripture is where we go to find God revealed. By reading and studying these narratives, poems, prophecies, and teachings we engage with the one true and living God made known by Jesus.

And because we have one God and one Lord, Jesus Christ, we are committed to planting our lives in scripture and growing together.

Scripture Reading Plans

Here are a few reading plans to help build a habit of regularly engaging with God through the scriptures. All of these plans are designed to go through the Bible in about 1 year

The Bible Project Reading Plan 

Structure

You’ll read two or three chapters a day and sometimes skim through larger portions that contain genealogies and census information (30 minutes average estimated reading time).

Meditate on the Psalms

Each day’s reading includes a Psalm upon which you can meditate and pray. By the end of the reading plan, you’ll have prayed through the book of Psalms two and a half times.

Videos

Every time you begin reading a new book of the Bible, we’ll direct you to a short animated video made by The Bible Project. These videos will outline the book’s design and overall message to put your reading in context. In addition to these overview videos, you’ll also find helpful theme videos that explore several topics covered in the reading plan.

ReadScripture App

This plan is built into a mobile Bible app called "ReadScripture". The app includes an ESV translation without verse numbers for more natural reading. The app also includes progress-tracking, embedded videos, and customizable font settings. A printable PDF version of the reading plan is also available.

The Weekday Study Plan 

Structure

This plan is designed to help you gain familiarity with each major portion of each book of Scripture. You’ll read through the books of the Bible one at a time, along with their respective isolatable narratives or ideas.

 

For example, the first week focuses on Genesis and you'll read through Genesis according to its major narrative arcs. Creation and the fall on day one, the flood and Babel the next day, Abraham the day after, etc. 

Reading lengths vary from day to day (between 20 and 60 minutes average estimated reading time). The plan only charts a course for the weekdays leaving weekends open for catching up if you missed a day, and focusing on the text that will be preached that Sunday. 

Meditate on the Psalms and Proverbs

Each day’s reading includes a Psalm upon which you can meditate and pray. By the end of the reading plan, you’ll have prayed through the book of Psalms two and a half times.

The Month to Month Study Plan 

Structure

This plan is a less structured version of the Weekday Study Plan. You'll still be reading through the books of the Bible one at a time, but instead of daily reading direction, you will have monthly reading goals. 

 

For example, in January your target will be to finish Genesis and Exodus by the end of the month and begin reading the Psalms.

Reading lengths will be up to you (an average of 30 minutes a day is suggested to complete the plan in a year, but that could mean 2 hours on Saturday and 90 minutes on Sunday) 

Meditate on the Psalms

Each month's reading includes praying through the Psalms upon which you can meditate and pray.
