A Monthly Bible Study Reading Plan

Happy New Year! Consider this monthly Bible study as a great New Year’s Resolution to help you dig into the Bible and grow in faith throughout the year.

You can study each month on your own, with a friend, group, or with your family.

It’s intentionally designed to be intergenerational — accessible to all ages, and fit into a busy schedule. Read one story each week or however you like, reflect, and pray.

May you and your family be blessed as you study God’s Word.
