The Gospel Project: STUDY THE BIBLE ACROSS GENERATIONS
Sunday School Series: Children, Youth, & Adults
With opportunities for personal, small group, & family use!! Join us as we study the same Bible passages across ages!! Our Ministry Teams of Children, Youth, and Adult have all gotten behind this great opportunity!
- Study the whole Bible in an accessible way (and you can join any time to benefit!)
- See how the WHOLE Bible is pointing to Jesus (not just the New Testament).
- Our generations, including families, will be studying the SAME PASSAGES so there is opportunity for deeper discussions across ages.
Where Can I Find It? Children, Youth, and Adults participate in Sunday School. (Middle School will be doing it regularly but High School more intermittently.)
How May You Gain?
We invite and encourage you to consider being part of this for a couple reasons:
- Have the opportunity to study the whole Bible with others.
- Be equipped to engage your family or other generations who are studying the same passages.
- Have Jesus glorified to you in new ways (especially has you study the OT).
- Use the resources given to the children and youth as a teaching time with your child.
