Recommended Resources

Below you'll find links* to some of the books, articles, ministries, podcasts, blogs, theologians, and music that we  highly recommend for discipleship. Of course, being listed below doesn't mean that we necessarily agree with everything written in that book, taught by a ministry, said on a podcast, posted on a blog, written by a theologian, preached by a pastor or sung by a musician. However, it does mean that we agree with it enough to say you should read it, listen to it and enjoy it because it will point you to the greatness of God, the beauty of the gospel and our need for Jesus Christ! Some of the books listed below can be checked out from our church's library.

*When possible we have linked directly to the author/publisher/ministry/musician or to a Christian distributor with the best price we could find.

All Church Bible Reading Plan for 2024
Chronological Bible Reading Plan - this special Bible reading system allows you to read the entire Bible in one year while only reading five times a week. Five readings a week gives room to catch up or take a day off to focus on other Bible reading or spiritual disciplines and makes daily Bible reading practical and do-able. Read, listen and keep track of our reading plan on the Woodridge Church App or click this link for a printable copy.
