Christian Fellowship Church's 2019 new testament bible reading plan

In 2019, Let’s Read the Bible in Community

One of the core values at Christian Fellowship is “The Word of God”. We believe that staying in the word, by reading the Bible, is essential to our growth as Christians and keeps us close to the heart of God. It’s one of the ways we improve our relationship with God.To help facilitate this goal, we’re using the Navigators’s Discipleship Journal’s 5x5x5 Reading Plan. The plan will guide you in reading through the New Testament for 5 minutes a day, 5 days a week, using 5 ways to dig deeper. You can participate in one of the following ways:
  • The Bible App on Your Phone for iOS or Android (Watch the How-to-Video below!)
  • The Bible App on a Web Browser
  • Right here on our website!
  • Or you can pick up the year plan at Sunday Services or in the church office
Whichever you choose we’re super excited to read the Bible together as a church family in 2019.
