Bible Reading Schedule
If you have a smart phone you can import the schedule right into your calendar. There are two ways to do this.
Option 1: Google calendar site (Recommended)
We recommend you do this option on your desktop computer. This option is recommended as it will automatically sync updates to your phone.
- Copy one of the following:
New Testament Testament:
- Go to your google calendar page
- At the bottom of the screen click “desktop” to go to the desktop view
- On the left navigation menu, go to “Other Calendars” and click the drop-down square button on the right
- Click “Add by URL”, paste the link you copied in step one, and click “Add Calendar”
- Now you are subscribed, but to sync this new subscription with your mobile devices you have to do an additional step. Go to this link below and check the box next to “Old Testament – Text Only”:
Note for iPhone Users
If certain days are not showing up in your calendar for the new schedule:
- Go to your iPhone settings.
- Click Mail, contact, calendars.
- Click Gmail.
- Unsync your calendar. It will ask if you want to delete it. Say yes.
- Once it deletes, simply switch your calendar back on. That should fix it.
Option 2: Importing .ics File
This method well on iPhones, but does not work on some Android devices. By using Option 2 you are only downloading the currently uploaded schedule and will have to repeat this step once the schedule starts over. Options 1 will automatically update your calendar with any future changes made to the reading schedule.
- Download one of the calendars from the links below (please do not use Chrome browser)

Bible Reading Tips
- Before each day’s reading portion, prepare your heart by spending a few minutes in prayer.
- Although any time of the day is good for reading God’s word, the first part of your day is ideal.
- If you miss a day, don’t get discouraged. Keep up with the current day’s reading, and go back, when you have more time, to read the portions you missed.
- Find another fellow believer to keep yourself accountable, motivated, supplied, and successful. The Christian life was not designed to be lived alone. Don’t be surprised when it doesn’t work that way.
- Share your enjoyment of Christ with the world through text, Facebook, Twitter, or even better, in person! All of the grace and light God gives us individually is for the Body of Christ and for others’ encouragement, consolation, and building up.
- Don’t keep it to yourself!
- Any other struggles you encounter are opportunities to experience the love and supply of the Body of Christ. Open up to those around you for prayer and you will be amazed at what God will do. You may also be surprised that you are not alone in your struggles. We’re in this together!
