The Bible is God’s Word for us revealing who God is and how we can know Him at a deeper level. God’s Word is vital as He draws, saves, and shapes us through Jesus Christ. Yet, biblical literacy is on the sharp decline among Christians. In an effort to help our church read and understand God’s Word, we are beginning a 2-year Bible reading plan for 2021 and 2022. As a church family, we will read the same passages together as we discuss them in our own families, in City Groups, in Huddles, and as we gather. Let’s read the Bible together!

Study Resources

When you're ready to dig deeper into your Bible study, the following tools could help when you encounter difficult text:
How to Read the Bible for All Its Worth
ESV Study Bible
Blue Letter Bible
Bible Commentaries

Videos

We'll be introducing some resources that will help us on our 2 year journey through the Bible. Here's the first one!

If you're only going to invest in one resource this year to help you read and understand the Bible, make it an ESV Study Bible!

If you want to read and invest deeply in one book of the Bible, a good commentary is a must!

Check out this video with Sarah Buettenback to learn more about the structure we're following for the next couple years.

Sam Reece gives encouragement and the Biblical basis for Citylight's mission. Matthew 28 "...go and make disciples"!

In our Two Year Bible Reading Plan we recently read about the transfiguration of Jesus from Mark 9. Learn why this is a big deal.

Having some context for Exodus 19-24 will go a long way for our understanding. Learn about covenants and how it helps us understand the New Testament.

It’s easy to get lost in the details, but Leviticus is all about God’s holiness, people’s sin, and how to restore fellowship with God. It’s designed to point us forward to Jesus’ perfect sacrifice on the cross as the only thing that can truly restore our relationship with God once and for all.

The Psalms are a collection of songs and poems. They balance the reality of the broken world we live in and the truth of God’s perfect, loving, and dependable character. Praying the Psalms is a way for us to bring our whole selves to God and letting Him minister to us right where we are.
