One of the best ways to deepen your relationship with God is to read and meditate on His Word (the Bible). Most people struggle to make Bible reading and prayer a regular part of their lives, yet the benefits are life-changing – truly they are!
Many people benefit from having a physical list in their Bible or near their device to make it simple and clear. We have created four kinds of reading plans to help you make Bible reading regular and meaningful. Choose a plan that you can achieve – start small – then build as you are led.
Level 1 / OHSM = 5 Minutes A Day – it gives you a simple track to follow – it is a scaled down version of Level 2.
Level 2 = 10 to 20 Minutes A Day – this plan was created by Pastor Jim – it gives you a clear and solid approach to reading ALL of the Bible in a three year sequence.
- New Testament, Psalms, Proverbs & Ecclesiastes every year, then
- 1/3 of the Old Testament each year (Pent. / History / Prophets).
This plan interfaces with the sermon schedule at different times throughout the year.
Kids (3rd-5th grade) – This is a launching pad to start a lifetime of reading the Bible. It corresponds with all levels to facilitate discussion at home.Kids are reading a small section out of Level 1.
Bible Recap / Podcast = 20 Minutes A Day - this plan is for someone that wants to read the Bible with a Bible teacher. Everyday has a podcast commentary on the reading to help you understand the context and apply it to your life – AMAZING!
Contact Pastor Jim if you have any questions at all in regard to Bible reading and making it meaningful.
