Lectionary

The Lectionary is a list of Bible readings used in many Christian churches for weekly worship services. It is set up in a format that after three years has cov- ered most of the Bible. Please use these readings as a study during your devo- tional times, and note them as a study guide if you are doing Pastor Jim’s Bible Studies on Wednesdays at 2 PM. He will use the readings for the following Sunday.
