2022 BIBLE READING PLAN
Discovering Jesus one verse at a time
We have a saying around here. "There is absolutely nothing that will change your life more than getting into the word of God daily." It is our source of truth and encouragement. It is our manual through the twists and turns of life. And most of all, it is how we come to understand God's great love for us and what it looks like to follow our savior Jesus. All that to say, we cannot encourage you enough to spend time not just reading the Bible, but STUDYING his word and allowing it to transform your life.
We know that for many people reading the Bible regularly can be a challenge.
For many it is confusing and difficult to understand. For others, the busyness of life often gets in the way. But, have no fear, we're here to help! One of the best ways to be consistent in your study of the Bible is by a) having a set plan and b) having someone else to journey with and keep you accountable. On that note, we invite you to join our yearly all-church Bible reading plan that begins on January 1st, 2022. The study takes you through a chapter a day and you'll have the benefit of daily reminders and regular encouragement from the True North community as we learn and grow together as a church family. So, are you ready!?

As you read we want to encourage you to incorporate a journaling strategy that really helps make the Bible come alive called the SOAP method. The method is explained below and we encourage you to journal right in the Bible app OR get yourself a notebook to write in each day!
S.O.A.P JOURNALING METHOD
Write out one verse from the chapter that spoke to you.
Observe carefully what the verse says. Ponder the context, setting, its meaning, tone and purpose. Write down a few sentences or a paragraph. And most importantly, answer the question, "what is God saying to me?"
How does this verse apply to my life? What am I going to do with what God is saying to me?
Finish your time with personal prayer. It may be praise, confession, or intercession. Ask him to help you apply what you have learned.
