BIBLE STUDY TOGETHER: HUMC Online Bible-Reading Group

This is a group committed to reading the Bible together in TWO YEARS following a chronological, cross-reference Bible reading plan.

Readings, study questions, supplementary videos, AND access to our HUMC Fellowship Group comment board are accessible through the free Bible Study Together app. Daily readings are completed at your leisure, but as a group, we’ll be reading and commenting on the same Scripture passages on the same days.

It’s a built-in accountability and support group for helping each other to digest and discern God’s Word together!
