Bethany First and Waterbury South Congregational Churches
Have you ever found yourself saying "I wish I knew more about the Bible"? Do you open the Scriptures and find yourself overwhelmed by all the numbers, headings, and footnotes covering the page? This fall, our churches' small groups will spend eight weeks reading Poets, a simplified reader's version of a portion of the Hebrew Bible which presents the text without any of the distracting, confusing, or esoteric additions which have turned the Scriptures from stories into reference materials.
Each week, you and your group will gather to talk about that week's readings in a book club format. This is not a 'Bible Study' with Greek words, commentaries, and a list of hyper-specific questions. Rather, your group will come together for a conversation about your reactions to what you read, with the same four suggested questions every week: What stood out to you? What troubled or confused you? Did anything make you think differently about God? How might this change the way you live? Your group can engage any, all, or none of these questions, allowing the conversation to go wherever it leads.
Also new to the program this year is a FREE family reading guide, which chooses a small selection from each day's scripture to read and converse about with your family. Download that guide here: http://immersebible.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Immerse_Poets_FamilyGuide.pdf
Sign up today, and experience reading the Bible like you've never done it before!
(Note: sign up groups are by day of the week, in order to determine best availability. If you are available on multiple days, please select up to three slots. Depending on numbers, we may have multiple groups on one day, and no group on another. We will do our best to find a group for everyone)
