Bible Reading Plans

Here at Fellowship Baptist, we read through the Bible each year as a congregation. While that might seem very intimidating, it really isn’t. Folks read at different level and different speed. So, while we all read through (or try to read through) the Bible, we all use different plans. Below are listed the options for 2022 that we have through the church. If none of these suits your fancy, we encourage you to find one that will help you grow in the scriptures.

Bible Reading Plan Options

  • Read through the whole Bible once
  • 1-2 selections most days

This five day a week plan is based on the Chronological Bible Reading Plan found below but has been restructured to give you a couple days off a week that can be used for reflection or catching up..

  • Reads through the New Testament once
    • The Pale Blue reads through the Old Testament once
  • 1 chapter per day
  • 5 days of reading then 2 days of “reflection”

This plan is designed for you to read for 5 minutes a day for 5 days and provides for 5 ways to reflect on what you have read (5 x 5 x 5).  Ideally, you would read Monday – Friday* and set aside the weekends for reflection and other reading. Especially beneficial if you’re new to a daily discipline of Bible reading.

*Note: Jan 1st is a Saturday, so if you follow the days as listed on the reading plan your days off are Thursday and Friday.

Discipleship Journal Bible Reading Plan (Yellow)

  • Reads through the whole Bible once
  • 4 selections per day
    • Two New Testament (the Gospels and the Letters)
    • Two Old Testament (the Wisdom Books and the rest of the OT)
  • 25 days of reading per month

To prevent the frustration of falling behind, which most of us tend to do when following a Bible reading plan, each month of this plan gives you only twenty-five readings. Since you will have several “free days” each month, you could set aside Sundays to either not read at all or to catch up on any readings you may have missed in the past week.  Or, if you finish the month’s readings by the twenty-fifth, you could use the final days of the month to study the passages that challenged or intrigued you.

Chronological Bible Reading Plan (Orange)

Click to download plan

  • Read through the whole Bible once
  • 1-2 selections most days
  • Readings are in the order the events occurred chronologically.

The one year chronological reading plan contains the entire text of the bible arranged in the order the events actually occurred. This unique viewpoint allows you to read the whole Bible as a single story and to see the unfolding of God’s plan in history.

M’Cheyne Bible Reading Plan (Green)

Click to download plan

  • Read through the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice
  • 4 selections per day
    • Two from the Old Testament
    • Two from the New Testament and/or Psalms

The M’Cheyne Bible Reading Plan was developed by Scottish pastor Robert Murray M’Cheyne and was intended by M’Cheyne to highlight the internal unity of the Scriptures to the reader. Many Christians have a very partial and disjointed understanding of the Bible. We know certain stories very well but don’t always understand how all the pieces fit together. This plan allows us to “see the big picture” while also soaking in the parts of the Bible that seem to minister most directly to the soul.

  • Read selections from the Old Testament and the New Testament
  • This is not a whole-Bible reading plan.
    • Does not include Psalms or Proverbs

New to reading through the Bible in a year?  This is a great plan for beginners.  It is comprised of short selections each day that will take you thought the most prominent stories in the Bible.  This plan does not include any readings from Psalms or Proverbs, but those could be read on your own.
