The Present Word is a rich resource for group Bible study based on the International Sunday School Lessons. There is an important theme for each quarter with easy to use, self-contained weekly lessons featuring daily Bible readings, a biblical passage discussed by excellent writers, with questions for reflection and discussion, and a prayer. This makes biblical study accessible and stimulates our understanding of biblical passages and their application to our lives of faith. The Present Word is a superb series. It helps us focus on insights from God’s Word and stimulates us to deeper commitments to Christ in our daily lives.

Feasting on the Word Curriculum

Feasting on the Word Curriculum will engage adults in a deeper exploration of biblical texts. Christian faith will be enhanced when the Scriptures read and proclaimed in worship are reinforced and expanded on what they have been considering in their educational time. Education and worship can be mutually supportive in helping God’s word in Scripture come alive in the Sunday morning experience.
