Family Reading Plan

Discipleship always begins in the home. Considering this, we have developed a reading plan so you don’t have to figure out what to read next or how much to read at one time. This plan is a week-to-week plan and paralells our study through the books of the Bible. This means that we will be studying the same material at church as you are in the home. It’s just one of the ways Gorman Baptist Church serves your family.

Imagine you are reading through Scripture with your family at home and someone has a question about the text. If you are on our reading plan, those questions can be addressed as we look through Scripture at church on Sunday or Wednesday night. We hope this plan makes discipleship easier for you at home and more holistically beneficial for your middle and high schoolers!

Be sure to space out the reading for each week as you see fit throughout that week. After reading, try and answer these two questions with your family:

What does this reveal about God?

How should I respond to this with my life?

If you do not have a copy of our brief guide to studying Scripture, please pick one up in the office or during our next church service. It will help you to lead your family worship time.
