The One Year Bible Challenge
In 2016, we are going on a chronological journey through the Bible. Everything in the Bible is there for a purpose. By reading God’s Word, we come to know Him Better. We learn that the people in Biblical times were very much like us. We begin to understand that God has a plan and that each of us is included in it. Yet sometimes it can be very tough to keep everything straight - what happened when, etc. That’s why our 2016 study will not only focus on reading the Bible in a year, we’ll use daily selected readings arranged in the order that the events actually occurred. Please join us! You will grow, and accomplish something great, by reading the Bible cover to cover in one year. Discussing it with your brothers and sisters in Christ is a bonus!
3 ways to participate!
- On your own…Read each day’s selection and then pray over what you have read. You can use a chronological Bible or use a list of daily readings available via OneYearBibleOnline.
- With Pastor Warren’s Videos…Watch Pastor Warren’s weekly videos. Plus read each day’s selection and then pray over what you have read.
- Bible Study – Sunday Mornings or Tuesday Nights…Join experienced Bible study leaders — Mary Jo Jump on Sunday’s at 10:30 a.m. or Tranetta McComb Tuesdays at 6:30 @ McDonald’s (Northwest Highway Palatine) — to discuss each week’s reading. Read each day’s selection and then pray over what you have read.
Study and Grow Using Three Questions
Each week after you have ready the week’s readings, consider and pray over three questions. Participants in the Sunday morning Bible Study will discuss these questions, as will Pastor Warren in his videos. They are simple, yet powerful, questions:
- Where, and how, did you see God at work in the week’s readings?
- What was going on with the people in the text?
- How can you apply this knowledge in your life today?
“In the One Year Chronological Bible, prophetic books are interwoven with the historical accounts they accompanied. Psalms follow the events about which they were written. Proverbs are placed in the time frame in which they were compiled. The life of Christ is woven into one moving story. And Paul’s letters to the young churches in the first century are integrated into the book of Acts.”
