Bible Reading

The Bible challenges us to know God and see ourselves in his Word

Why Read The Bible?

Our deepest relationships are those that we invest the most time in. Being intentional about reading God’s Word means that we’re setting aside time to hear from him and understand what he wants for our lives. By taking the time each day to read and reflect on what he has to say, we can make being in a relationship with God a daily part our lives.

Bible Reading Plans

The Story of Ruth

This is a reading plan for the book of Ruth. It is a book that has been carried down through hundreds of years and finally committed to writing between the 6th and 4th centuries BC. It is the story of a young woman from the country of Moab (a country East of Israel) at about 1200 BC. This young woman marries a young Jewish man and lives with his family on a plot of land in Moab until her husband dies. When her mother-in-law (herself widowed) decides to move back to Israel, Ruth clings to her and vows to stay with her and move to Israel. It is a remarkable story of loyalty, integrity, and how God uses people from all over to accomplish his will.

Our reading plan will include a daily portion of scripture to read, some questions to think through, and a challenge for the day. To get the most out of the experience, find a quiet place where you can invest 15 minutes each day. It would also be helpful to have a notebook or journal to record your thoughts. Above all, keep an open mind about what God might accomplish over the next several days.

Spiritual Gifts

What are spiritual gifts, where do they come from, and how can you identify yours? This 5-Day Bible Reading Plan will equip you to start exploring how your unique makeup can help you serve God and his mission to reach others in his name.

Sermon on the Mount Daily Reading Challenge

Take the challenge to read Matthew 5-7 each day as we hear in the uncensored (and sometimes shocking) words of Jesus how he instructs his followers to live. This 18-Day Bible Reading Plan will pair the Sermon on the Mount with daily devotionals encouraging us in our journey to be more like Jesus.

Rise EP Bible Reading Plan

LCBC Worship’s EP Rise tells and celebrates the incredible story of Jesus’s death and resurrection. As you listen along with the songs on the EP, read along in this 4-Day Bible Reading Plan complete with lyrics from the songs, scripture, and accompanying thoughts around how Jesus’ story changes everything for us.

Book by Book: Quarter 2

Book By Book: Quarter 1

This part of the reading plan includes selected chapters from each book of the Bible from Genesis to 2 Samuel. Reading some of each book will give us insight into all of the Bible. We will discover that it contains both stories and instruction and will help us understand God and ourselves better.

Journey To the Cross: An Easter Bible Reading Plan

We know about hardship. Yet, it’s all too easy to remove ourselves from the tension surrounding the stories in the Bible. For example, when we think of Easter, we think of springtime, new life, and celebration. However, the events surrounding the death and resurrection of Jesus are much more relatable to our everyday reality- stories of pain, struggle, and endurance. Let’s follow Jesus through the final week of his life - a journey that led to Golgotha - a journey that can teach us to live well in the face of life’s unwavering circumstances.

Twelve Days of Christmas

At Christmas, we take time to celebrate the birth of Jesus. But when we read the Christmas story more closely, we can see God's provision and love throughout the lives of Mary, Joseph and more. Spend twelve days resting in the fact that God is in control and practice trusting his plan for us.
