The 2019 theme is inspired by Jesus’ words in Matthew 4:19 where he says, “Come, follow me.” The Bible shows us there is a distinct call for those who are followers of Jesus. Throughout the year, we will look at four key “landmarks” of the Christian journey: Seeking God, Serving God & Others, Being Unashamed of Jesus, and Trusting & Obeying Jesus.
As a part of Seeking God, we will dig into Scripture in two ways: (1) By using the F260 Bible Reading Plan and Bible Reading Plan for Kids, and (2) By memorizing Scripture as a church, one passage per month.
Get ready for an exciting year of growth as we learn to pursue Jesus with others! Are you ready to accept the challenge?
The F-260 is a two hundred and sixty day reading plan developed by Replicate Ministries that highlights the foundational passages of Scripture that every disciple should know. If you have experienced failed attempts of reading through the Bible in a year, don't fret! This simple plan is perfect for any believer.
The plan expects believers to read 1 or 2 chapters a day for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. The 2 off-days a week are built in so you may catch up on days where you’re unable to read In order to digest more of the Word. The F-260 encourages believers to read less and to keep a H.E.A.R. Journal. Here is a sample H.E.A.R. entry.
Note: Only the adapted QSBC Reading Plan PDFs above include the QSBC 2019 Monthly Memory Verses. If you use the Replicate or YouVersion Apps, they will contain memory verses different from the ones we are memorizing as a church. Download the QSBC Monthly Memory Verses (PDF).
There are many plans for memorizing Scripture but this simple one has proved most effective. All you need is a pack of index cards and a committed desire to memorize God’s Word. It’s easy: write the reference of the verse on one side of the card and the text of the verse on the other. Carry your pack of Scripture cards with you.
Throughout the day, whenever you have a few minutes, pull out your pack of Scripture cards and review them. Read the reference first, followed by the verse. Continue to recite the verse until you get a feel for the flow of the passage. When you are comfortable with the text, look only at the reference side of the card in order to test your recall.
