Reading through the Psalms TOGETHER

Reading the Word of God together, as a covenant people, is an effective way for us to unite our hearts around the riches of the Lord's grace.  Beginning July 1st, and continuing through August, we will read through the book of Psalms twice!  Psalms targets our faith walk and unites God's truths with our emotional challenges.  The book of Psalm is a wealth of illustrations used by the New Testament writers to explain our life in Christ.  We encourage you to participate in this illuminating journey!

The plan is simple, and you will find it easy to stay on track or to return to the course if you miss a few days,  We will read five Psalms a day.

Start with the calendar day and read that Psalm (for example, if today is July 8th, you would read Psalm 8).  Now, use your math skills and add thirty to it and continue adding thirty to the current Psalm you are reading until you have read a total of five Psalms.  (example:  8+30=38; 38+30=68; 68+30=98; 98+30=128).  Rules have exemptions and the exception is on the 29th.  On the 29th of each month, skip Psalm 119, with its one hundred and seventy-six verses.  We will read Psalm 119 by itself on the 31st of each month. 

Email the office and we will add you to the Bible Reading Group, this way you will receive daily reminders (at least Monday - Friday) of what we are reading on that day.  info@thehillssa.org
