Spiritual Practices

Spiritual Practices is more than just a Bible study. It’s a travelogue, or journal, that is designed to allow people to actually record and assess their individual spiritual journey as they more toward Christlikeness.

Divided into two books, Spiritual Practices: Venture In and Spiritual Practices: Venture Up, this curriculum explores 24 different spiritual habits designed to bring intentionality to our daily walk with Christ as He makes us more like Him. Each book offers thirteen lessons that cover these practices at a pace and depth that should be comfortable for any learner.

Each lesson covers four different disciplines or practices and incorporates not only Bible study, but also scripture memorization, journaling, and prayer. These books are designed to work together as a series. However, each can be studied on its own depending on the spiritual maturity of the learning.

Whether together with friends or family, as a self-guided study in our time alone with God, or in a more traditional setting like a LIFE Group or a Sunday School class, Spiritual Practices: Venture In and Spiritual Practices: Venture Up provide a versatile and compelling way to keep moving forward on our journey to a Christ-centered life all year long. See Inside this Curriculum.

God’s Unfolding Story will help learners capture the Grand Story of the Bible and see how Jesus is the climax of the drama of Scripture. These travelogues were designed to be a companion to an individual or corporate Bible study experience.

 

God’s Unfolding Story, Venture In begins with a study of Luke 24 and Jesus’ words to both the travelers to Emmaus, and to his disciples, that all of the Scriptures (Old Testament) testify to him. The remainder of the Bible studies are 12 selected passages of the Old Testament that help tell the chronological story, as well as pointing ahead to Jesus and the New Covenant.

 

God’s Unfolding Story, Venture Up continues the Bible’s story with the birth of the Messiah, and concludes with Revelation 21 and the future hope of Christ’s return and the new creation. In between these bookends, the studies consider the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus; the story of the early church told in Acts; and selected passages from New Testament epistles.
