Each lesson lasts between an hour and a half to two hours.
Sessions begin with prayer and a memory verse that emphasizes an important truth for the lesson.
Participants will read the biblical passages that are the focus of that session. Afterwards they will watch a short DVD teaching (15 minutes) and then have an opportunity to answer guided discussion questions about the teaching and text.
The foundation for spiritual growth is an intimate connection with God and His family. That connection is built by sharing of ourselves. This section contains a few simple questions to get participants talking and letting them share as much or little of their story as they feel comfortable sharing.
The study then asks participants to focus on their personal journey and how God is calling them to respond to His Word in their every day lives.
During the week, participants can soak in the lesson more thoroughly at home with the devotional book.
