Study Resources

  • Journeys with God: a biblical curriculum from MEA. The aim of the curriculum is to invite children to become part of the biblical story. Listening to and participating in the stories of God’s people helps children build a firm foundation for faithful living as they move from shared/experiential faith toward a  more mature and owned faith. The curriculum is designed to help children gain a sense of the Bible as a whole and how the Biblical narrative interacts with their lives.
  • Radical Hospitality: Responding to the Issue of Immigration – Bible study from MC USA
