Any group can read through the Bible together as a church with group reading plans. In a few moments, you can set up, share, and connect your church to any reading plan. If you have access to Logos, you can even fully customize the plan with more than one resource in your library.

Create a Reading Plan
Read through the Bible together as a church by creating a group reading plan.
Note: By default administrators, moderators, and members can create reading plans. An administrator can adjust these permissions from Group Settings in the left-hand admin navigation menu. For instance, you may want to limit creation of new reading plans to administrators and moderators only.
1. Expand the Add dropdown for Group Readings.
To begin, navigate to your church group on Faithlife.com. The right-hand sidebar displays items related to your group, including Group Readings. Click Add to expand the group reading options.
Note: By default, church groups display group readings in the right-hand sidebar. If you’ve removed it from your sidebar and need to re-activate it, an administrator can do so from the group settings. Expand Settings in the admin navigation menu, select Group Settings, and scroll down to the Sidebar settings.
2. Select a reading plan.
You can choose between nearly seventy different reading plans. Some focus on biblical themes over a short time period while others guide you to read larger sections of the Bible over the course of a month or a whole year.
Once created, your reading plan displays in the right-hand sidebar of your church group along with a preview of the day’s reading.
Join or Quit a Reading Plan
Anyone can join a reading plan from your church group homepage. Select Connect in the right-hand panel or Join reading plan from the group newsfeed.
Once you join a reading plan, you can request your daily readings to be sent to you in an email. Expand the dropdown and select Subscribe to email.
Selecting the reading for the day takes you to bible.faithlife.com. If you prefer to read in a different version than the default, expand the dropdown menu and select your preferred translation. Most common translations are available.
A progress bar appears to indicate where you should start and stop your reading for the day. When finished, click Mark Read.
If readers fall behind, you can quickly catch up to today’s reading.
To quit a reading plan, choose Leave reading plan from the dropdown menu in the newsfeed or select Quit in the right-hand panel.
Read from your mobile app.
1. Expand the navigation menu.
2. Select Reading Plans.
3. Open and read your reading plan.
The plan’s description will indicate if your plan is connected with your church group.
Delete a Reading Plan
By default, only administrators and moderators can delete reading plans. You can adjust these settings from the Group Settings found in the left-hand admin navigation menu.
1. Navigate to Logos Documents.
Your church group shares reading plans via the Logos collaboration feature, so in order to delete a plan in your group, expand Bible Study in the left-hand navigation menu and select Logos Documents.
2. Select End Collaboration.
Find your desired reading plan in the list (search for it if necessary), expand the Actions dropdown, and select End Collaboration to remove the reading plan from your church group.
Advanced Logos Reading Plans
With Logos, you can create, customize, and share reading plans of the Bible or any other resource(s) in your library. As long as members of your group have access to the given resource, they can read along with you. Plans shared with your church group will appear in the right-hand sidebar of your group on Faithlife.com. To learn more about creating reading plans in Logos, click here.
