We invite you to read the Bible with us.

For the sake of your joy, we invite you to join with your brothers and sisters and feast on the Word of God together. God invites us to delight endlessly in his Word of Life (Ps 119:16), to meditate on his Word day and night (Ps 1:2), and to build our lives upon it (Matt 7:24-27). How will you saturate your heart with Scripture? As you pick a Bible reading plan, we encourage you to find a time and place to discuss your reading with your family and/or church family on a regular basis.

M'Cheyne's Classic Bible Reading Plan

A few years ago, OBC began a repeating journey through the Bible Robert Murray M'Cheyne's classic Bible reading plan.  

At four chapters a day, this plan will take you through the Old Testament once and the New Testament and Psalms twice over the course of one year. If you would like to move at a slower pace over two years, follow the calendar plan, but extend it to two years by reading the first two chapters of each day for year one, and the second two chapters of each day for year two.
Each day's reading is available on the Bible tab in  the OBC App.  If you are following along in the M’Cheyne plan, we also invite you to read D. A. Carson’s “For the Love of God.” This devotional follows along with M’Cheyne’s plan and is available for free online as a daily newsletter or podcast from the Gospel Coalition.

The Via Emmaus Bible Reading Plan

If you want to read longer sections of Scripture, we invite you to read your Bible with our Via Emmaus Bible Reading Plan. For more on this plan, read David's blog post here.

The pace of this plan is set by you, with the aim of allowing for more repeated readings and memorization by focusing on book(s) of the Bible for each month. There’s no daily schedule. Instead, read, listen, study, memorize, meditate as much as you can. Live your life in the book(s) of the month. The goal is saturation, which includes repeated reading, responsive praying, rigorous study, ongoing meditation, personal discussion, and frequent sharing.

Here’s an overview of the Via Emmaus track:
