Hebrews 4:12 tells us that the Word of God is alive and active. It speaks to our hearts and transforms us from the inside out. Therefore, we believe staying in God’s word daily can have a tremendous impact on our faith and want to provide you with reading plans to get your started. Our heart is not to create a religious “to-do” but instead something to just help you stay focused and consistent in God’s word. Feel free to start one of these plans at any time. Our desire is for you to find what works for you.
In 2020 we are putting an emphasis on being in the Word together as a Church. We want to give you a tool to read the bible through in a year in chronological order so its makes more sense.
Be sure to also check out https://thebibleproject.com for informative videos on each book of the Bible before you start it to gain some context as you read.
As you study the book of Acts, here is a guide that is designed to help you dig deeper. We encourage you to sit down with a Bible, journal, pen, and an open heart each day and allow this to help you in your time with the Lord.
In it, you will find a chapter to read each day, questions to think through and journal on, and a verse to memorize each week. Our hope is that this guide will help you learn to meditate on the God’s Word and challenge you to grow deeper in your relationship with God. We also encourage you to watch this overview video from the Bible Project before you begin to give you a better understanding of what the Book of Acts is all about.
Sometimes it seems there are specific times in our lives when God is trying to get our attention. What if God is trying to get your attention? Are you in a place where you can hear His voice? What if God is calling your name? What if God is trying to turn your life in His direction? What if He is trying to take our Church on a journey that we never thought possible? In these 21 days of prayer and fasting, it is not only possible but also probable that God will speak into our lives and into the life of our Church to use this time as a turning point in the direction of our church.
This annual season of prayer and fasting will be aided and accompanied by several tools in this document, including: a Biblical guide to fasting, different fasting options, and a prayer guide for each of the 21 days that includes a central Biblical passage, a brief devotional thought, reflection questions, and a prayer and journaling section.

The books of Psalms and Proverbs are categorized (along with Job, Ecclesiastes, and Song of Solomon) as the “Wisdom Literature” in the Old Testament. Within the Psalms and Proverbs, you will encounter poems, songs, prayers, sayings, and thoughts written by several authors for the purposes of expressing a vast range of human emotions, thought, and experiences that ultimately reveal how we can reflect the Kingdom of God in our life on earth. Our hope is that through these readings you will be able to analyze your ways of thinking as informed by your culture and your experiences against how God invites you to think and act as a believer. Through your exploration, we hope that you are able to renew your mind and heart to better live in the freedom of God. For a great initial perspective on these books, please watch these videos from the Bible Project!
