Bible Readings

As we approach the New Year, some of you may be looking for a good way to study your Bible. A couple of options we would suggest:

  • thebibleproject.tumblr.com/readscripture (full bible)
  • Mission119.org (full bible)
  • Read Daily: 10 chapters in the New Testament; 5 chapters in Psalms; 1 chapter in Proverbs.
