Bible Reading Plan

What is the F260 and Who Should Use It?

The F-260 is a two hundred and sixty-day reading plan that highlights the foundational passages of Scripture that every disciple should know. The plan is designed to be a manageable plan for believers who have never read the Bible before. This plan is used by our Discipleship Groups (D-Groups), but all members of the church are encouraged to participate in the reading plan even if they are not a member of a group. 

How Does It Work?

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. JournalHere is a sample H.E.A.R. entry.

Memorizing the Word

While many plans for memorizing Scripture are effective, a simple system has been effective for me. 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. Focus on five verses at a time, and 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.
