North Trenholm is a church committed to


Hopefully this season of a pandemic and unrest throughout the world has challenged us to reengage the spiritual disciplines (Prayer, Bible Reading, Scripture Reflection, Worship, fasting, etc.) of a disciple of Christ. For years, most of us struggle to find a good rhythm for reading the Bible, which is why we’re pointing you in the direction of this particular reading plan.
The benefit of this plan is that you can download the YouVersion Bible App right to your smart phone or tablet, join The Bible Project reading plan, easily connect with others who are following through the same plan and even set a reminder through the app to remind you at a certain time of the day to read the selection for that day.
If you do not have access to a smart phone or tablet you can also download the Bible app on your desktop or laptop so that you can read along every day.  And for those who are not quite that tech savvy, you can also download a printable version of the plan or check with our church office and they will be glad to print it out for you.


How to Keep Your Reading Plan

Forgive Missed Days!

This is the THE key for forming the habit of reading through the Bible on a reading plan: personal forgiveness for missing days.

You are right because of God's verdict, not your reading plan allegiance.

Your justification is from Christ through trusting him. Not through reading every chapter in your Bible reading plan. A broken man can read from his Bible reading plan 1 day, and miss 5, and consider it God's grace that he read it one day. A proud man beats himself up for missing 3 days, and then quits his plan or doubles up his resolution and seeks to accomplish his goals in the flesh. Be the broken man and keep going.

There's nothing wrong with skipping yesterday's chapters.

Acknowledge that there is nothing wrong with reading Genesis 12, 13, 14... missing 4 days... and then reading Genesis 20, 21, 22 without knowing what happens in between. Wouldn't you have just otherwise just opened the Bible to a place randomly without reading the preceding chapters anyway?

If you must know what happens, scan the section headings for a summary.

Don't worry: If you stay on a reading plan, you'll eventually read those skipped chapters.

Summary: no matter how many days you've missed, just start with today's reading. That's so much better than stressing out over how many days you've missed.
