Starting the Year

Gatherings

Let's start the year Growing Together for the Glory of God!  Please bring your favorite dish and join us for our Worship and Prayer Fellowship Dinner on January 11th.  Registration is also open to sign up for a Small Group.

 

Scripture Memory

Fighter Verses

Consider Fighter Verses for scripture memorization in 2023.  The Fighter Verses program comes with an App you can download with songs and other tools to help with verse retention.  We print the Fighter Verses on our LCC Kids coloring sheets each week and also on our LCC Prayer Calendar.

 

Bible Reading Plans

DJBRP Discipleship Journal Reading Plan (PDFYouVersion App) Each day you read from four different parts of the Bible.  The printable bookmarks help you mark your place or you can download the YouVersion App and follow along on your mobile device.    
Psalms-Ezekiel Psalms-Ezekiel Plan (PDF)
A great plan for beginners! Track 1 is two chapters a day, all the way from Genesis to Malachi. Track 2 is also two chapters a day for Psalms and Ezekiel, but when you reach the New Testament, it’s just one chapter a day.
   
Love of God For the Love of God: A Daily Companion for Discovering the Riches of God's Word - D. A. Carson provides comments and reflections working through the M'Cheyne Bible reading plan.  This plan works through the Old Testament once and works through Psalms and the New Testament twice.    

You can find additional Bible Reading Plans here.
