Join Us in Reading the Bible in One Year

Coming in January!!!

Please join us this January as we commence on a journey to read the entire bible together in one year!

We will take a fresh look at the Bible by reading it in the order the events actually happened. We can read the entire Bible in as little as 15 minutes a day with this New Living Translation (NLT) One-year Bible.

Since this is an independent study, we will be reading it on our own and discussing it during Sunday night services and at Monday evening bible study at church.

Now you can gain a better understanding of the order of biblical events and the historical context in which they unfolded. The One Year Chronological Bible arranges the entire Bible text—books, chapters, and even verses—in the order the events actually happened.

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.

The One Year Chronological Bible also has:

  • 365 daily readings to help you read the entire Bible chronologically in one year

  • Transition statements to help you understand why some Scripture portions appear where they do

  • Historical dates indicating when the events actually occurred

  • A general timeline of major events to give you a clear overview of Israel’s history

  • A Scripture index in canonical order to help you find your favorite passages quickly and easily

If you are interested in joining us, please sign up in the narthex and indicate if you need us to purchase the study bible and materials for you. (Some of you may choose to use an electronic version on your tablet or laptop computer in lieu of a text book.) For those of you who would like us to purchase a hard copy of this bible, we are asking for a donation of $10.00 to cover the cost of materials. An electronic version of this bible is also available at
