bible reading plan

As we continue to connect students to Jesus, each other, and the world, the Youth Ministry staff would like to invite students to engage with the Bible Project Reading Plan! This plan is designed to take the reader through the Bible in a year. One of the ways we get to know God is by learning His Word, and this reading plan can be a helpful tool towards understanding God better.

For more information, use the links below to find the plan, along with instructions and helpful aids to use as you walk through the Bible. We have also provided links to podcasts and an audio Bible with the hope that these will be other helpful tools for engaging the Bible in your own time!
