All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

To encourage and to facilitate personal Bible study and devotions, we offer a Bible reading plan for everyone to use.  There are added benefits as well to having the congregation reading through the same passages at the same time.  We have chosen to use the plan written by Robert Murray M’Cheyne.  This plan offers daily texts for both personal and family devotions.  These may be switched and alternated as the leader of the family so chooses.  Using this plan, both personal and family readings, a person will read through the entire Bible once in a year, with the Psalms and New Testament being read twice.  The Family readings include the Psalms, the entire New Testament, and part of the Old Testament.  The Personal readings include the New Testament, the Psalms, and part of the Old Testament.  After one year the personal and family readings could be switched if desired. The instructions also note that the head of the household may change family and personal readings as appropriate for the family.

There are a number of other Bible reading plans available, both in book form and online.  The ESV website is a good place to start.
