Join us in the invitation to make 2016 the year we will read the entire Bible. Many of us have made a commitment at the start of a year that this is the year we will actually read through the entire Bible. But things come happen, and we end up breaking the habit. Hopefully, if we make this commitment as a group it will be easier to accomplish. The One Year Bible daily reading plan has passages from the Old and New Testaments, Psalms and Proverbs. This Scripture arrangement brings variety and a fresh approach to each day’s 15-minute reading, while providing a clear understanding of the Bible’s larger message. No other “through the Bible” plan presents the entire Bible in such a user-friendly format. Simply select the week and day to link to the passages to be read. If you did not receive the reading plan chart or would like another one, we have a few extras in the Narthex and the lounge.

Here is a prayer you can say each day before beginning to read:

“Blessed Lord God, you have caused the holy scriptures to be written for the nourishment of your people. Grant that we may hear them, read, learn, and inwardly digest them, that, comforted by your promises, we may embrace and forever hold fast to the hope of eternal life, which you have given us in Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.”
