The Songs That Shape Us

Series runs through March 2/3, 2019

The book of Psalms is one of the most treasured and beloved books in all of the Bible. For millennia these songs have served as the original songbook of God's faithful people.

These beautifully written poems and songs are full of passion and feeling, misery and joy, abandonment and hope. They open a window to the bright lights and dark corners of the human soul.

The Psalms shaped the way Jesus lived and prayed. They have the ability to transform our lives as well.

Read the Bible in a Year

Make 2019 the year you read the Bible in its entirety! These reading plans take less than 30 minutes a day and include a daily reading from the Psalms. You will be exposed to various parts of the Old and New Testaments simultaneously, which will keep your reading fresh and remind you of “the whole counsel of God”!

Read the Bible for Life 4+1 

Read in 4 different places in Scripture each day ( YouVersion will often list the chapters separately; so "John 2-3" would be presented as "John 2" and "John 3 ") plus a reading from Psalms. In using this plan you will read through the entire Bible in a year and through the Psalms twice. Available on your mobile device via the YouVersion Bible App (search in Reading Plans) or on the website HERE.

Daily Audio Bible

Each day includes narrated readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs, plus commentary and prayer at the end. Delivered daily to your device by podcast or app at
