This quarterly study (thirteen lessons) presents stimulating lessons that explore the biblical message and how to apply it to daily life. Individuals and classes studying from this series follow the ISSL / Uniform Series. Adults move from a focus on the Word to reflection on personal, family, church, and community concerns. Lessons are Bible-based, Christ-focused, United Methodist-approved curriculum for use in adult Sunday school classes, mid-week Bible study, and small-group based studies. Please read below for quarterly themes.
