Confession: I do enjoy reading my Bible. But when I think of reading the WHOLE Bible, in a single year, something like this comes to mind:


Without a plan, I’m sunk! Which is why I’m incredibly grateful for the resources Jason and Tyler have provided to help all of us reach this goal by the end of the year.

If you haven’t already downloaded the Read Scripture app, I HIGHLY recommend you do so now! CLICK HERE to access the links to both the Apple and Android versions of the app. I’ve been using this for a few days now and have found it makes Bible reading much easier. The daily readings are broken up into manageable sections of about 3-4 chapters plus one Psalm reading. Some days also have links included to animated videos from The Bible Project, which have helped me to see the bigger picture of the overall themes. Plus (more honesty), I love cartoons! So getting to watch a video feels like a little reward for sticking with the plan.

The Read Scripture app is definitely the best option if you have a smartphone or tablet. But for those who do not, a PDF version of the reading plan is available HERE. And you can access the supplemental videos HERE. Videos can searched by the title provided on the PDF.

Links to these resources are also available on our website and Gateway app.

New Videos: More good news! Remember when Michael Burns came to visit back in December to film his “Crossing the Line” Workshops? The videos are now available!  Feel free to share; these will also be linked to our website on the “Sermons” page.

Also, Jeff Hughes’s sermon from two weeks ago is also now available! We had a few technical issues in the last couple weeks but our AV team is working hard to fix them. Last week’s sermon will be available soon!
