Summer 2020 Home Groups

We’re suggesting a couple of resources for the group study time.  These are

Story Bearer :  Stories have the power to captivate, communicate ideas, create and build relationships and ultimately to introduce us to the greatest author of them all, whose bestseller is life itself.  The session resources follow

Session 1  – God’s Story
Session 2 – Your Story
Session 3 – Their Story

For a theme based set of studies, BibleProject’s “Church at Home” give a weekly small group Bible study guide that will be delivered right to your inbox.  Sign up at the website to get the content.  All of the content is free.  It covers topics a variety of bible themes.  Each email will contain: A BibleProject video, a short audio message, 2-3 Scripture readings, 6-8 discussion questions

Home Groups continuing with ‘The Bible Course’

See the BIG bible story.  For the first part of 2020 our recommended study material for home groups is the Bible Course.  Through a mixture of video, discussion and reading we’ll travel from the beginning to the end of the bible story.  There are course booklets available for everyone taking part.

The ongoing SLOBS sessions will be helpful to each study leader in preparing to get the most from each section.  If you are leading a study then these SLOBS sessions will be essential to getting the best from this excellent resource from the Bible Society.

Video are available on DVD, or USB from the Belmont Office and can be streamed / downloaded session by session from these links.  More information about showing the videos will be available at SLOBS.
