Read the Bible in 9 Months

Presbyterians are often referred to as people of the book. The book, of course, is the Bible. The Bible is central to us as the scriptures reveal God’s love for us and all creation from the very beginning.  Presbyterians are shaped by the Bible in all we say and do – in worship, in mission, in how we govern ourselves, and how we understand the life of faith.  The Bible is a rich treasure and gift to us from God.

You are invited  to join an exciting Bible reading program at First Presbyterian.  Now in its tenth season, the Reading the Bible in 9 Months (RB9M) program – which has involved over 250 members and friends – is a daily reading program that weaves together both testaments in an enlightening and enriching experience of our history as God’s people. 

 A feature of the Reading the Bible in 9 Months program includes the opportunity for monthly Zoom check-in meetings from October – May.  During these one hour Sunday afternoon gatherings (3 p.m. on the 1st Sunday of the month), participants in the reading program are invited to come together for support, encouragement, and to engage questions that the readings have raised.  Engaging in the reading program does not require attendance at the monthly meetings; they are simply available if you would find them helpful.
