Based on the Uniform Series, Adult Bible Studies is a quarterly study that explores the biblical message and how to apply it to daily life. The curriculum helps adults move from a focus on the Word to reflection on personal, family, church, and community concerns. Lessons are Bible-based, Christ-focused, and United Methodist - approved curriculum for use in adult Sunday school classes, mid-week Bible study, and small-group studies.
This fall, AdultBible Study presents a series of readings following the theme "The Christian Community Comes Alive." Readings come primarily from the Book of Acts and focus on the beginnings of the Christian church; the boldness with which Jesus' followers testified to their faith; and the ways the gospel spread among the Jews and then the Gentiles.
