Study God’s Word
We recommend the plan below to guide your personal Bible study.
Foundations (F-260) Bible Reading Plan
A 260-day Bible reading plan that highlights foundational passages of Scripture every disciple should know. Read 1 to 2 chapters daily for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. If you’re interested in furthering your Bible reading, the Foundations book provides commentary and questions to help you understand and navigate the daily reading. You can also download the YouVersion Bible app to have the plan easily accessible on your phone!
