SMALL GROUPS

Words of Life for Your Life in 2022! You are invited to join in a Bible Reading plan in 2022 that will be Life, Light, Love, & Liberty for your life.  Below are several options for getting into Word for your life:
 

1.  Read through the Bible in 2022 in this Five-Day-A-Week plan.  The plan will be printed and provided in the worship bulletins the first couple of Sundays of the year, and will be available in the Resource Racks all year.  You may also download and print and/or save the reading plan at: www.fivedaybiblereading.com
 

2.  The Upper Room devotional: Another plan is to read the Scripture and devotion and daily prayer from The Upper Room Daily Devotional.  These are provided in print in regular and large print every two months for you to pick up at the church at the entrances to the Sanctuary until they are all taken.  Get one and give one to someone else to bless them. 
 

3.  The Upper Room Disciplines: Another plan is based on the Common Lectionary Bible Reading Scriptures and is available for reading online or purchasing in print at www.upperroom.org.
 

4.  Other Daily Devotionals:  Any devotional that gets you into God’s Word and that you will use is great!  YouVersion Bible App has many options that may be read online, and “Jesus Calling” is another great resource, along with many others.
