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.
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. Daily readings from September – May are arranged in such a way that the connections between the books of the Bible and the overarching themes and story cycles of scripture come together to reveal the unity of the Bible.
A feature of the Reading the Bible in 9 Months program includes the opportunity for monthly check-in meetings from October – May. During these one hour Sunday afternoon gatherings, 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. Monthly check in meetings at 4:30 p.m. are scheduled for: October 10, November 14, December 12, January 9, February 13, March 13, April 25, and May 22.
