Through the summer months, we will be reading about the early Church through the book of Acts and several letters to the early churches. This is an attempt to have a somewhat chronological approach to the reading and as such we will jump in and out of Acts over the course of the summer.  On this page, you can find our Bible reading plan, tips on how to read the Bible as well several videos to guide you through the books and letters.

We encourage you to read with others and discuss what you are learning and discovering.

We hope these resources bless you as you seek God through his word.

Before you read each day:

We invite you to start by saying a simple prayer: “God, would you help me to see and understand what you have for me in this time? Help me to know you more so I may follow you more closely.”

After reading each passage take a moment to consider these questions (note: it can be helpful to write down your answers to these questions):

  1. What did this chapter say? About God? Jesus? People? Life? Etc.
  2. What is the main theme or truth of this passage?
  3. What is one way you can apply this passage to your life? Is there a step of obedience I can take? Try to think of something specific you could begin right away.

 

A prayer to close your time could be something like this: “God, thank you for the Bible, and how it helps us to know you. Would you help me to remember what I’ve read today and may it have an impact on how I live, starting today?”
