One might ask why post the order of Torah study? First it would be on our part very disrespectful to YHVH our Elohim to assume we have been given the book of life and no ordered lesson plans, knowing all good human teachers use them. Why then would we of Yisrael think we are to establish an ordered plan for these Torot-Instructions-Torah-laws reading on each set apart day. The Parshas have always been apart of the old ways established by the scribes, Yirmeyahu-Jeremiah 18:15 the simple way. Each of the Moadim have the commandment of a Miqra Kodesh-an assembly set apart for readings. We parsh-seperate the Scripture to establish an ordered reading for the Shabbats. The word Parsha H6567 a primitive root which means to separate, disperse, specify. In Vayikra-Lev. 24:12, the word parsha is translated as "showed", where Moshe is asking for understanding in the matter of one caught blaspheming the name of YHVH. In Ba Midbar-Num.15:34, one found gathering sticks (to light-build a fire, do not this) on Shabbat, to Parsha-"declare" what was to be done. Nechemyah-Nehemiah 8:8, so they read in the scroll of the Torah of Elohim the Parsha-"distinctly", and back in verse 2, and it was the first day of the seventh month, meaning it was Yom Teruah-Trumpets, (and Rosh Chodesh) so the Torah Parshas for that day were read. History indicates that these Parshas were established by the Scribes before this time, their names derived from the first words in each Parsha.The history of Brit Chadash-New testament confirms these Parshas were being read in the assemblies-churches in Maaseh Shlichim-Acts 15:21, (those returning to Elohim) to hold back from pollutions of the idols, and fornication, and the strangled, and blood for Mosheh from ancient times, every generation, in every city, the Torah readings bring to mind again (Torah of Moshe, which is the Word of YHVH) in the synagogues-or assemblies on every Shabbat. This is understood from the Greek Interlinear. The four listed requirements bring a person into basic kadosh-set apartness that the people of the assemblies may have fellowship and eat together and learn Moshe. In addition there are Parshas listed for each of the Kadosh Days-Moadim. And the name church came about long after the first century think, if one says church who would know what?For more information see Nazarene History.
The Haftarah Parsha's are readings from the Prophets Masseh Shlichim-Acts 13:27. These readings may differ somewhat according to differing traditions.
The Brit Chadashah-New Testament readings were established according to subject content and added at a later date.
The Haftarah and the Brit Chadashah-New Testament parshas compliment the Torah parsha for that Shabbat. These Parshas are best done in each group with all participating, including children in an order that is best for that group which will establish a CUSTOM-TRADITION for future generations.
The lunar calendar first light of the moon the first sighting determines the months for Yisrael and the solar for the annual cycle. The month Aviv (first month) determines when the year begins Shemot-Exodus 12:2, which means the seasons must be kept in their proper time. For the barley must be ripe for the wave sheaf offering, the first day of unleavened bread. The extra month of Adar (to expand) is adding in the leap year which can occur seven years out of a nineteen year cycle which is called the Hebrew calendar. By following this calendar we maintain the seasons, the Moadim-appointed times are by the moon sightings. This method adds 4 to 5 Shabbat's in the leap year, and you may see notes in some of the Parshas indicating their individual or combined readings.
Torah Parsha Baruch atah before reading:
Baruch atah YHVH, our Elohim, King of the universe, Who selected us from all the people and gave us His Torah-Instructions. Baruch atah YHVH, Who gives of the Torah, and now may we Shema-hear and understand. Yadah-extended hand of confession and thanks.
After the readings:
Baruch atah YHVH our Elohim, King of the universe, Who has given us Instructions of truth and faithful prophets and planted eternal life in our midst, Baruch atah YHVH, Giver of the Torah. It is a Tree of life to those who take hold of it, and those who support its ways. All its ways are ways of pleasantness and all its paths are peace. Bring us back YHVH to You, and we shall come, renew our days as of old, Berakah-to kneel, bow, to praise.

Will add to this the sighting of the moon takes place from 18 to 36 hours after the moon starts the orbit reflecting light visible to the eye this allows all to be on the same time and was commanded, this is true of the Chag days, festivals the full moon. One can go into great detail and that is not necessary, some points to help seeing the new moon crescent in the evening sky, about 20 minutes after sun set the first an extremely thin crescent will need optical aid to see, it will set before twilight ends, and the light passing through the atmosphere dims the light more and reddens. To make the observation of the new moon crescent by eye, the atmosphere clear helps, seek a high place where maybe seen the horizon, planning the observation. Note where the sun set, the moon will be five degree to the north or south of the sun set position. Because of the orbit the moon rises later each night than the night before this time is about fifty minutes later each night, the variation can be plus or minus fifteen minutes. Three quarters of the way around its orbit, moon rises around midnight and is waning moving to thinner crescents and darkness then new birth at the crescent seen by the eyes. The conjunction occured when the moon is lined up with the sun this is the technical term commonly called as new moon, this period is 29.53 days and is called lunar month, for our lunation moon month it is by sight of the crescent later in the orbit, this the way commanded. It appears in the western sky after sunset low, between 3 and 4 by the clock position and must be viewed through the twilight, keep searching the sky, and sets shortly after sunset about two hours.
