Read the Bible in 2021


Over the last two years, we've been challenged to read through the Bible at least once. Well, we want to keep going! Research indicates Bible engagement is the number one indicator of spiritual maturity. In 2021, we're going to read the Chronological Plan as a church family.


CHRONOLOGICAL READING PLAN
This plan is adapted from Blue Letter Bible’s chronological reading plan. It is a seven-day per week reading plan and will take you through the entire Bible in chronological order as it happened through time.
