At the beginning of each new year, Worship Center has presented a Bible reading plan. This year, Pastor Matt introduced the Bible in One Year (
The plan, created and published by HTB Church, presents a list of verses, as well as a devotional. By reading the passages each day, the reader will have gone through the entire Bible in one year.
The Media team has been trying to find the best way to incorporate this plan into the Worship Center mobile app. Including the Bible wasn't the hard part, as copyrighted material, but including the devotional has been tricky. After several versions and attempts, the team finally settled on the way to cover it all.
Clicking on the Bible tab at the bottom of the app's home screen takes you to the Bible. You can click on the Bible icon to load the Bible page. Click on the small down arrow to the right of the book title to select a book, then the chapter, of the Bible.
You can also select a version of the Bible you'd like to read, listen to the audio version by clicking on the speaker icon, or enlarge the font by clicking on the "Aa" icon. To skip to the next or previous chapter, simply click on the circled arrow at the bottom left or bottom right. Click the left arrow in the upper left corner to go back to the Bible page.

We admit that this year, the WC app may not provide the best user experience. That's why we've provided multiple ways to access the reading plan. It was more important to us that we provide a good reading plan, along with options to follow that plan. No matter which way you decide to participate, we pray that you will engage with God's Word every day!
