The Bible Reading Challenge for this year is moving along just great! I’m so thankful for each of you who have continued to keep reading and encouraging one another to keep going each week.
Today I’ve been preparing for summer break with calendaring, activities, and daily schedule (or lack thereof). And I’m so excited to bring to you this summer Bible Reading plan for children! This plan covers the book of John and is designed for 3rd through 6th graders. If your child is younger than 3rd grade, you could still do the plan by reading aloud to your child/children.
I chose the book of John for our summer reading, which has 21 chapters. I divided each chapter in half to keep the segments a little smaller. The approximate reading time for each half chapter is 15-20 minutes, depending on the speed of your reader.
John is the gospel that is written simply, yet descriptively. Whenever I receive an email asking where to start reading the Bible, I typically recommend the “small” books of John, I, II, and III, and then immediately after reading those, I recommend the gospel of John.
Divided in this manner, the Bible reading plan can be completed in 6 weeks- making it perfect for a summer reading program!
I hope you enjoy and I’d love your feedback on this one-of-a-kind children’s Bible reading plan! Just click on the graphic or here to download.
And now for our Bible Challenge Readers, it’s check-in day! Be sure to leave a comment to let us know how you are doing with the reading and if there is any way we can encourage you.
Have a fabulous weekend!
