Reading the New Testament

with Olive Drive Church

We have selected a bible reading plan that is organized and helps you keep track of your New Testament reading over the course of a year. It is a simple, effective way to read the entire New Testament in one year. The plan involves reading one chapter a day, five days a week, and has 2 unassigned days provided each week to catch up if you have missed any days and for further meditation and study on scripture you’ve read.

This plan’s layout can be tracked on the sheet we have created(we have paper copies available at the church office or print it by clicking HERE) or the plan can be tracked and organized for you on your computer, smart-phone, or tablet.  *This plans default has the days off as Thursday and Friday, you can choose whichever 2 days you would like to take off.  Please read 5 chapters per week.

For the purposes of electronic access to the reading plan we have selected the plan called “Project 345”
