Summer 2021 Bible Reading Plan

For the summer of 2021, we are going back to basics to dig deeper into our faith. One simple question with huge implications: What is the story of the Bible? Sure we have favorite verses and favorite stories, but what exactly is the overall story of God, God’s people, and God’s designs for all creation?

Each Sunday we’ll cover one of 12 major parts of the story, and we’re joining together in weekly readings that will fill out the story in greater detail. Save this page and return daily to cover your daily readings. And if you get behind, no judgment whatsoever. With this plan, you can hop in whenever and it’ll be just as fruitful.

We’ll ask the same 3 questions every week to help us connect the story together. Start a journal to record your thoughts that you can revisit later.

  1. What do these verses tell us about God?
  2. What do these verses tell us about humanity?
  3. What do these verses reveal about our relationship with God and God’s plan for us?
