  • Shari, great question. There are several very inexpensive and easy-to-use resources in the Being Reformed series that are excellent tools for new member classes. Although not specifically about the entire Book of Confessions, the four short-term studies, A Brief Statement of Faith, Thelogoy for Presbyterians, Re-membering Baptism, and Wisdom from the Early Church, are good options to build a foundation of faith in the Presbyterian Reformed tradition. There is also a small book from the Office of the General Assembly on our constitutional documents with one session on the Book of Confession, Common Faith, Common Mission. You can order any of these resources through store.pcusa.org. Last tip for inexpensive tools for teacher training, new members, or officers is the free online site Opening Doors to Discipleship. Send me an email with the name of your congregation and your requset for the PC(USA) login number. May God richly bless you and your leadership with new members.
