Bible Reading Plans
Wouldn’t it be great at the end of 2013 to say that you know God better than you do now? If we want to know God, there’s no substitute for reading and reflecting on the Bible, God’s word to us. Join us as we read through the Bible and memorize key verses in 2013.
There are two Bible reading plans; their details are below. Pick the one that fits best for you (or go for both). The plans are available for free in the Bookstore, as a download which you can print by clicking on the links below, or through our iPhone/iPad and Android smartphone apps.
If you want to reflect more on why it’s so important for us to know the Bible, these sermons from January 2009 can help.

New for 2013 - The Foundations Bible Reading Plan
How we live is based on what we believe. So if we want to live the Christian life, we need to know what we believe as Christians. We may have some idea of the great truths of Christianity but not always where they came from. We think they’re found somewhere in the Bible, but if we’re honest, we don’t always know where to look. The result is that what we believe is floating, without solid support in God’s word.
This reading plan is designed to help us ground the key beliefs of Christianity in Scripture. It’s a chance to develop a firmer foundation for what we believe.
Each month has a thematic focus that over the course of the year will lead us through what the Christian faith is all about. We start with who God is and who we are, then look at his work through Jesus to save us, and on to how he sustains us as a community that lives for him and looks forward to his return.
There’s a passage for each day, which can be as much as a chapter, or sometimes just a few verses. There’s a brief phrase that will help you focus on the big idea for that day.
We invite you to join us for this new kind of reading plan that will help you build a stronger foundation in the Christian faith.
Traditional Bible Reading Plan
Last year we made available a reading plan that would allow you to read through almost the entire Bible in 2 years. Since the plan only requires you to read one chapter a day, many people have found it very doable even in the midst of a busy schedule. Whether or not you participated in 2012, it is easy to get started in the new year. And after reading a chapter of the Bible every day, you won’t be the same person that started the year!
