  • Choose a reading plan; it could cover anywhere from one book to the whole Bible.
  • Find a blank journal to record three things as you read: (1) any questions you have about each reading; (2) one thing that stands out to you from each reading; and (3) one thing you’ll do in response to each reading, applying its teaching to your life (perhaps including a verse to memorize).

Group Discussion

  • Share one book of the Bible you have read that you got the most out of. Share one book (or section) of the Bible you think you would benefit from reading.

  • Share about a time when a verse you’ve memorized came to the rescue for you.
  • Group Leader: Walk your group through the steps of downloading the YouVersion App, choosing a translation to read, choosing a Bible reading plan (individually), and listening to a passage audibly.
