Adult Ministries

We are committed to each individual's spiritual formation and discipleship. God's ultimate goal for each one of us is that we become spiritually mature by becoming more and more like Christ in our thoughts, feelings, and actions. With worship as the center of our life, we learn, connect, and serve together in various ways.

Reading Calendar

mcheyne-picThis classic calendar for reading through the Bible in one year has been used by many generations.  Developed by Robert Murray M'Cheyne (1813-1843, Scottish preacher/poet) (left), it has been praised by many including the great preacher of our generation, John R.W. Stott. 

It is arranged so that each day there are readings from four different books of the Bible.  You could read two in the morning to orient yourself for the day, and then the other two in the evening.  Or you could use one pair of readings as the basis of family devotions, and the other for personal study.  In one year, it will take you through the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice.

The calendar is in pdf format.  You will find a separate page for each month, with the days of the month in the center column of each page.
