Recommended Reading

Bible Reading
  1. Bible. You need a good, reliable Bible. We preach from the English Standard Version on Sunday morning and recommend the ESV Study Bible for those in the market for a new Bible. We recommended this version for two reasons: 1) it’s a literal translation and 2) it is very readable.
  2. 2022 Bible Reading Plan. This is the plan we’ll be following as a church this year. Get your copy of this year’s Bible Reading Plan any Sunday morning. You can also here to download a copy to print at home.
  3. Bible Doctrine, by Wayne Grudem. Every family needs a great, readable, concise theology book. This book might also serve as a great discipleship tool for wives and children. This is our top recommendation.

Scripture Memory

For the next year, we are joining in with Desiring God’s Fighter Verses and memorizing a verse per week. Here are ways you can get the weekly verses:

THE FIGHTER VERSE APP. You can also download the Fighter Verses App. We’ll be memorizing the ESV Set of verses throughout the year.

THE FIGHTER VERSE WEBSITE. You can also go to the fighter verse website for weekly devotions on the verses we’re memorizing.
