The Bible Project

Throughout the Fall, we will use the Bible Project to lead us as we dig deeper into God’s Word. Each week, we will read a book of the New Testament. Join us for this interactive journey.

There are four ways to engage in this study:

Disciple Track

Read highlights of the Bible book over the course of the week.

Scholar Track

Read the entire Bible book over the course of the week.

Watch a short background and overview video on the Bible book covered that week. Here are the links for each video:

Mark
Luke
Luke
Acts I
Acts II
I Corinthians
II Corinthians
Ephesians
Colossians
I Timothy
II Timothy
Hebrews
I John
II John
Jude
Revelation Part I
Revelation Part II

For each week, we have a reflection question based on the recommended reading for the day as well as an activity to do at home or with others as a way to engage with Scripture. We will post the reflection and Bible Project Video link on social media each week and would love to hear your thoughts and responses in the comments.
