The 260 Plan
We're reading through the New Testament as a church family, and here’s something amazing — the New Testament is made up of 260 chapters — the exact same number of weekdays there are in a year!
>> The plan is to read through the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, Monday through Friday.
To help ensure our Bible reading is leading to real growth in our lives, we have several opportunities to connect with friends about what we're discovering as we read through the New Testament.
And you don't need to sign up to get involved — just show up to the group that works best for you. Here's when they're happening:
- 6PM on Wednesdays @ Panera Bread on Betteravia, with Susie Limon
- 9AM on Fridays @ Panera Bread on Betteravia, with Susie Limon
- 7AM on Thursdays @ Panera Bread on Betteravia, with Mike Foell
- 7AM on Fridays @ Panera Bread on Betteravia, with Gary Howse
ONLINE GROUP FOR EVERYONE
- 7PM on Thursdays via Zoom online, with Jessica & Tino Medina and Pastor Tim (to log on, CLICK HERE before 7PM, and make sure to create a Zoom profile before the meeting!)
Read & Respond
Reading through the Bible is an important practice for followers of Jesus — but it’s never meant to be about checking off boxes on a schedule.
It’s about life transformation.
To help capture and activate the discoveries you’re making while reading the Bible, be ready to write them down. Every time you read, take a few minutes to write out these first three things (and the fourth is a bonus!):
What grabbed my attention? What is God showing me?
This has to do with answering the question: “So what?” How do these insights impact my life — my relationships, work or school, finances, attitude, etc.? How is Jesus calling me to become more like Him, or challenging me to take a new step of faith?
Turn these insights and implications into prayer. Ask God for the strength and courage to put His Word into practice — then do it!
That's what our 260 Reading Groups are for! Together we're exploring the insights and implications of what we're discovering in God's Word — then praying for each other that we'd have God's power to live them out.
