Living Discipleship: Exploring the Bible takes participants on a journey through the scriptures, from Genesis to Revelation. One of the main ways that we know and understand the hope to which God has called us is the gift of God’s Word, the Bible. By focusing on the vast narrative of the scriptures, we can see the great story of God’s love from the beginning of creation, through the life of Jesus Christ, and in our own time, guided by the Holy Spirit. Through the stories of scripture, we can learn that the hope God offered to the faithful in ages past is the very same hope to which God is calling us today.
Intended for adults and older youth, we will be reading scripture selections that are assigned on a weekly basis. You can use the class schedule to get the handouts you need for each week and to keep up with where the class is in the event that you miss a Sunday or two over the course of the year.
There are two options for getting the readings for our time together on Sunday mornings.
The first option is to purchase The Path from Forward Movement in a book format. The book contains the scripture stories that we will be exploring each week in our conversation.
The second option is to download a PDF version of the same material at no cost. The PDF document is laid out in the same way as the book and is useful if you would like to participate in the class without purchasing another book to put on the bookshelves!
