Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based studies that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study—written by well-known and respected scholars—features Scripture, a prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection. Each study addresses its subject from a Reformed theological perspective.

Lessons are enhanced through the Leader’s Guide, which offers helpful suggestions and direction for group study. The main structure for these guides is the rubric Head, Heart, and Hands. 

  • What are we learning and what questions arise?
  • What does the lesson mean for our spiritual lives?
  • What implications for action emerge from the lesson to set us in a new direction for living?

Call to Mission, with a foreword by Hunter Farrell, director of Presbyterian World Mission, challenges congregations to explore their call to mission from both global and local perspectives. 

Great Prayer of Thanksgiving will strengthen our faith in God, who has acted in history, who continues to lead and guide us, and who will bring us together in the joyful feast of the people of God. Written by David Gambrell, associate for worship in the Office of Theology, Worship, and Education, Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), this study is excellent for use during Lent or anytime in the liturgical year.

[The Being Reformed study] Temptation in the Desert is the best curriculum I have ever taught. It’s also very well received by young adult participants. Through word of mouth, attendance is increasing each Sunday.”
Susan Burch, adult Sunday school teacher, First Presbyterian Church, Greer, South Carolina

 “Being Reformed explores what makes us uniquely Reformed, distinctively centered in rich theology of learning and living in Christ. Our participants have found this curriculum to be informative and insightful as they travel their journey of what it means to be Reformed.”
Rev. Mary Jo Hotley, First Presbyterian Church, Fargo, North Dakota
