Announcing Plans with Friends: Grow together in God’s Word…daily

Plans connect you with God’s Word:

Bible Plans, Reading Plans, Devotionals — whatever you call them, you probably already know that Plans are a proven way that you can get the Bible into the flow of your everyday life, by giving you just a little to read (or listen to) each day.

And the Bible is better with Friends:

When we spend time with friends, we often end up chatting about trivial things (movies or TV shows, sporting events, or recent purchases, as just a few examples). But, when we share our spiritual lives with trusted friends, those more meaningful conversations typically draw us closer to one another. Also, getting someone else’s perspective often helps us see things in God’s Word that we might not have noticed on our own.

Plans with Friends brings together the best of both.

Plans with Friends
Address a challenging issue in your life by inviting one or two close Friends to join you in a Plan. You’ll see one another’s progress as you complete days, and you can talk over each day’s reading in a private discussion area.

Discussion View

Kick off a group Bible study by inviting a few of your friends — or several — to start a Plan with you. As you complete each day on a shared schedule, you’ll likely see things in God’s Word that you’ve never noticed before, learning from one another’s perspectives in a group-text style of conversation.

Plans with Friends Process

Getting started is easy:

  1. Update your app
  2. Start any Plan
  3. Select “With Friends”
  4. Choose a start date
  5. Invite your Friends

Announcing Streaks: Get the Bible habit you’ve always wanted


Oh, how I love your teachings!
I talk about them all the time.

Psalm 119:97

The Bible is God’s Word to us, the spiritual food that we need to live each day with love, wisdom, and purpose. That’s why today we’re thrilled to announce Streaks. We designed Streaks specifically to help you build your habit of connecting with God through His Word.

Streaks on Home View

The strongest habit starts small.

Whether you’re refreshing your existing Bible habit, or building a brand new one from scratch, consistency is key. Streaks show you how many days in a row you’ve opened the Bible App, right at the top of your Home feed.1

Streaks Milestone

Streaks help you take it one day at a time.

Streaks encourage you with push notifications: short, gentle reminders to connect that help you build momentum over time. And along the way, each time you reach a new milestone — such as engaging with God’s Word for 7 days in a row or beating your previous record — Streaks reward your accomplishments with special, mini-celebrations.

Current Streak

It’s just three simple steps:

  1. Update your app. (Now is good.)
  2. Connect today. (Just open the app.)
  3. Come back tomorrow. (Repeat Step 2.)

That’s it! Once you have our latest release, every day you open the Bible App, you’ll be building a Streak… which means you’ll be building your habit. Read or listen to Scripture. Enjoy today’s selection for one of your Bible Plans. Watch a Bible App Video, such as “What is the Bible?” or “Matthew 5:1-16” (the Sermon on the Mount) or “Bread of Life.” Find Friends in the Bible App and grow your Bible community.
