F260 reading PLAN

WHAT IS THE NORTHSIDE F260 READING PLAN?

The F260 plan is a two hundred and sixty day reading plan that highlights the foundational passages of Scripture that every disciple should know. It was originally designed by Replicate Ministries and we've adapted it to fit the needs of our church members. 


HOW DOES IT WORK?

The plan expects believers to read 1 or 2 chapters a day for 5 days each week, with an allowance for weekends off. The 2 off-days a week are built in so you may catch up on days where you’re unable to read In order to digest more of the Word.

H.E.A.R. JOURNALING

WHAT IS A "H.E.A.R." JOURNAL?

A H.E.A.R. Journal is a simple way to help you read the Bible with the goal of applying it to your life. This method promotes reading the Bible with a life-transforming purpose. Our focus should not be just checking off the boxes on our daily reading schedule, but on hearing from God and having our lives transformed by His Word. By asking four simple questions, we can begin to understand and apply any passage of scripture to our lives. In addition, journaling is a great discipline, because it helps us retain three times more of what we read.


WHAT DOES "HEAR" STAND FOR?

The acronym H.E.A.R. stands for Highlight, Explain, Apply, and Respond. Each of these four steps contributes to creating an atmosphere to hear God speak. After settling on a reading plan and establishing a time for studying God’s Word, you will be ready to HEAR from God.
