Weekly themes explore living in God's blessing, releasing shame and guilt, dealing constructively with anger, receiving God's forgiveness, forgiving others, and becoming a community of reconciliation. It is highly recommended that participants complete the 28-week Companions in Christ course before participating in The Way of Forgiveness. It is important to begin this challenging topic with a well-bonded group.

  • The Way of Prayer

    Meeting time: 2 hours
    Group Size: 6-12
    Duration: 11 weeks (10 weeks and a preparatory meeting)

    This resource is designed to help people expand their understanding of the nature and practice of prayer. Most Christians grow up with a limited vision of what prayer is and how to pray. The Way of Prayer offers many forms to explore through experience, both individually and as a group. It helps persons of different temperaments, spiritual types, and learning styles find expressions of prayer that draw them closer to God. It also enables them to integrate their spiritual lives more fully -- between body, mind, and spirit, and between the inner and outer life. With creative leadership, this resource will help bring greater scope into the prayer life of the congregation.

  • The Way of Transforming Discipleship

    Group Size: 6-12
    Duration: 6 weeks (5 weeks and a preparatory meeting)

    * A great Lenten study or preparation for a mission trip
    This resource by Trevor Hudson and Stephen Bryant challenges Christians from the viewpoint of a white South African pastor who has lived through the political changes in that country and experienced with rare vulnerability the spiritual struggles inherent in the process of truth-telling, reconciliation, deep pain, and poverty. Trevor Hudson brings a message of vital, transforming spirituality through knowing who we are, changing from the inside out, listening to the groans of others, and discovering the deep spirituality of belonging. This resource may be used by groups prior to experiencing the 28-week Companions in Christ resource. It is also a good study to follow the 28-week resource.

  • The Way of Discernment

    Meeting time: 2 hours
    Group Size: 6-12
    Duration: 11 weeks (10 weeks and a preparatory meeting)

    Whether experienced as a simple desire to follow God’s way, a deep longing, or satisfaction when we find a fulfilling path, discernment beckons believers.  This ten-week study focuses on the spiritual discipline of discernment for individuals and small groups, and points toward elements and processes critical to faithful discernment in  congregations or larger bodies of the church. More of a journey in discernment than a how-to-guide, this group study gently leads to the prayerful path of a richer, wiser life for both individuals and the larger church.
