Summer Bible Reading Plan for Children

We need to be intentional about helping our children grow as Christians and the summer is the perfect time to make this happen! In this post, you will find my summer Bible reading plans for children for 2014. Each week focuses on a different attribute of God and includes a Psalm, an Old Testament and New Testament story, and a reading from an epistle all related to that attribute. The plan for Older Children includes a “Think about it” question after each passage and one or two suggested activities to go along with that week’s Scriptures. The preschooler/younger child plan includes “To do” activities — activities that are designed to be completed with a parent to help explain the Scripture to the child.

This plan was originally for the Summer of 2014.  However, it is an 11 week plan that can be completed at any time of the year.  If you have already completed this plan, or if you would like to participate in the plan for Summer 2015, you can find those plans here:
