WCC Bible Reading Plan
the week of June 20-September 12
We offer numerous events to help you take a next step in your spiritual journey, grow in your faith, or connect with others.
― James Merritt
Reading the Bible Together
When we spend time in God’s Word, we’re getting to know Him. We’re also maturing in our faith. Regularly spending time together with God in His Word is such a beautiful, life-giving thing. And just as it benefits us as individuals, when we gather together as the church to commit to spending time reading and studying the Bible, something special happens. We’re able to encourage one another and grow together.
5 Minutes a Day, 7 Days a Week
Commit around five minutes a day, seven days a week, to our church-wide Bible reading plan. We’ll have seven chapters to read each week – most weeks will include five chapters from one book and two Psalms. The goal of this plan is to consistently spend time in God’s Word. We’ll be reading various styles of books – gospels, epistles, history, poetry, prophecy, etc. Using this guide, you’ll easily be able to track your reading and follow along. And don’t worry if you get off track; you can just jump back in where we are. You can always go back and catch up when you have extra time.
Each week, devotionals will be published that correspond with what we’re reading. These devotionals will be from a variety of people participating in this church-wide reading plan. Through these devotionals, we will be encouraged and challenged as we journey through God’s Word together.
These devotionals will be in written or video form and can be found on our website.
Do you have questions about what you’re reading? We’d love to help! Rather than relying on the first thing you find on the internet, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are more than happy to answer that nagging question you have, provide you with some clarity, or point you in the right direction for further study.
Up for more of a challenge?
Don’t just read the chapters, use the following questions to study them:
Observation: This is how to learn what a passage of scripture says. Questions to ask: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How? What does it say? What do I notice?
Interpretation: This is how to accurately interpret scripture and understand what it means in the right context. Questions to ask: What are the key themes or truths? What is the writer’s intended meaning? What is the context? What questions do I have?
Application: This is how to correctly apply the truth of the text to everyday life. Questions to ask: How do I apply it? What are the implications in my life? What does this mean for me

Each one of us is called to “missions.” God places us in specific places and situations so that we can draw others closer to Him. We join Him in His redemptive work by praying for and serving others. We give of our time, talents, and treasures. We intentionally build relationships with people so that they can get a glimpse of Him through us. Join us monthly to hear from, encourage, and pray for our missions partners. We will meet Thursday, June 17, 7pm.

Kosciusko County and all of its local communities are joining forces to develop a thorough, one-of-a-kind County Comprehensive Plan update. Over the course of the next year, residents, community leaders, and community organizations are being asked to come together to discuss local challenges, identify unique community features, and determine how Kosciusko County and its local communities can grow and improve for a better future. Additional information on the project can be found at: www.forwardkosciusko.com
As a part of this planning process, the county is undergoing an extensive public and stakeholder engagement process to ensure that the plan’s recommendations meet the needs and aspirations of the county and each community. Big ideas lead to big community transformation. That’s why your opinion and ideas are crucially important to the overall planning process and final comprehensive plan.
There are three current activities for residents to share their thoughts; a community survey, an interactive asset mapping exercise, and an idea wall. All can be found online at: www.forwardkosciusko.com Please provide your feedback and share the website links with others as we work to make Kosciusko County a great place to live, work, and play.
