Daily Bible Reading

In 2019, Cypress Chapel will look at the Bible using a resource that we've shared with our families the last few years: The Big Picture Interactive Bible Storybook. Unlike many children's bibles, this abridged version of God's Word looks at some difficult (and sometimes overlooked) stories and books of the Old Testament. We will base our Sunday morning worship and DNA discussions on a few themes throughout the year, including the life of Joshua and each of the Old Testament prophets. 


Cypress Chapel has copies of The Big Picture Interactive Bible Storybook available for you to use on Sundays and take home for your devotional purposes each week. Our Daily Bible Readings and weekly worship theme will correspond to the lesson from Sunday. 


In addition to following the plan below, for those who would like to have a more in-depth reading each day, the CC Daily Bible Reading Plan (through the Cypress Chapel App) will also include daily readings from the New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs. In 2019, those who follow the Bible Reading Plan will read through the scheduled/thematic readings once and the NT/Psalms/Proverbs twice.
