Start Reading the Bible

We want to make it easy for you to read the Bible. If you've never done it before, it can seem scary or intimidating, but you can do it!

One great way to start and stay connected to God's Word is to join a Bible reading plan that outlines passages and sometimes includes devotionals to keep you on track and provide some structure. Over the past year or so, our church family has gone through several of these plans together utilizing the YouVersion Bible app. This app is a free download on any mobile device, or you can also access it at

When you join one of our churchwide plans, you're able to see and track the progress of other First MBers. This adds an extra level of accountability, plus it's fun to know we're all reading the same passages together! These plans also offer the option to post comments on the daily readings, so you can share what you learned or post questions to the rest of the group.

We encourage you to dive in on these plans! We always update this page with the latest plan, so if you finish one, check back here to start a new one with us!

Current Reading Plan (Starting January 1):

At the beginning of the year we offered a new churchwide Bible reading plan that will take us through the entire New Testament throughout 2019. Sadly, we maxed out the number of users YouVersion allows to be on the same plan! If you tried to sign up but received an error, sign up here to read the same plan. You won't be able to see other First MBers comments, but we're working on a solution to get this fixed when part 2 of this plan starts on April 1. Feel free to read along with us in the meantime, and we'll share more details soon. Contact Matt at if you have further questions.
