Reading the Bible Together
As a church fellowship we are venturing on something very exciting. We elders would like to encourage everyone to join in a 'Reading the Bible Together' plan.
The scheme allows you to read the Scriptures on your own and in your own time. You may like to read a few verses a day, or a chapter a day, or all in one go.
You can add this monthly reading to your existing Bible reading plan or simply make this your sole plan. You may want to share the reading of the Scriptures by partnering with someone else at a time convenient to yourselves. You will find it helpful to record what you learn and any questions you want to follow up. Do this in whatever format suits you. It will certainly deepen our understanding of the Scriptures and encourage us to be built up in our Faith.
Here is the outline for Year One (2021)
Mar: Psalms 1-72
May: 1 & 2 Corinthians
Jul: 1 Samuel
Sep: Psalms 73-150
Nov: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 & 2 Thessalonians
