Reading the Bible Through in a Year

Categories: Freshness and Newness

This is a great task to help students increase their awareness of the Bible.

With younger classes, take one of the toddler or pre-school Bibles we use in Kids Korner. Ask the parents to read at least one story (or more) a week to their children. Discuss this story in class each Sunday. With older children, use an Adventure Bible or Hurlbut's Kid's Bible. Give specific reading assignments for each week. For teens, use Eugene Peterson's The Message or a translation of their liking. The important thing is to begin this wonderful journey. Don't let getting behind keep you from finishing this goal. There are rich rewards for completing this assignment. If it takes two or three years to accomplish, stay with it. Look at Bible Overview for different ways to read through the Bible.
