How do I engage with the Bible Reading Plan?


1. Get the Plan


If you have a smartphone, the Bible app is a great tool for you to use to keep track of where you are in the plan, do your daily readings, and connect with others. To start, you will need to download the free app and create an account. Once you’ve downloaded the app, open it and tap the silhouette of a head in the top right corner. From there, just tap “Sign Up,” and you will be able to create an account using your Facebook profile, a Google profile, or an email address.


All of the same features of the app are also available online at bible.com. Once on the website, simply click the “Sign Up” button in the upper right hand corner to create an account the same way you would in the app. An account created in the app is also usable on the website, and vice-versa.


If you prefer a hard copy, you can grab one at the Connect Point. A downloadable PDF of the plan is also available on our website at jubileestl.org/my-jubilee-bible.

Then What?

2. Accept an invitation from your Community Group Leader

One of the many great features of the Bible app is the ability to read a plan with a group of people. We are taking advantage of this by inviting Community Groups to connect together within the app. This will not only help with accountability, it will also provide you the opportunity to share questions, thoughts, and impressions while reading with others in your Community Group. Your Community Group Leader will send you a link soon inviting you to join the group and begin the plan.

3. Commit to daily readings

The plan starts on January 22, 2018. Our desire in reading through the Bible is to cultivate a love for Scripture. Throughout the year our hope is that you will learn to know and love the Word of God, and see the impact and relevance it has in your own life. The plan we have chosen is titled “Eat This Book,” and contains an average of 3 to 4 chapters and a Psalm each day. This should provide you with a reasonable amount of reading per day, as well as an encouragement from Psalms for your personal prayer time.

4. Participate in Community Group and Bible App discussions

As a supplement to the daily readings, we will have study guides and discussion questions for both personal and group use. This semester in Community Groups, our discussion times will be based on these guides which will give you the opportunity to share what God is doing in your life, as well as talk through any questions that may come up along the way. The Bible app is also a great tool for this, as it provides the ability to share thoughts and questions with the people you’re reading with. We encourage you to take advantage of these tools to encourage and engage others as we seek to grow closer to God together.

5. Share your story on social media using #MyJubileeBible

As a church, we have faith that our devotion to reading through the Bible this year will result in many stories of God-honoring life change, and we would love to share stories with each other! Whether it’s a simple picture of your reading for the day or a personal testimony of what God is doing in your life, you sharing your personal experience could be just the encouragement someone else needs. Be sure to join the conversation online by using the hashtag #MyJubileeBible.
