You are invited to pull a chair up to the table and share a deepening understanding of scripture and God's call to faithful life in Jesus. Covenant Bible Study has arrived in North Georgia.
The North Georgia Conference is hosting several Covenant Bible Study preview experiences in the coming months.
Each of these previews are two and one half hour sessions designed to help participants learn how to successfully lead and/or implement Covenant Bible Study in their congregations. Register here
Covenant Bible Study is an in-depth group Bible Study that centers around our relationships with God, with each other, and with the world.
It differs from other Bible studies in that it emphasizes the biblical concept of Covenant—the enduring commitment between God and people—as a unifying pattern throughout the entire Bible. It underscores the unique relationship that God chooses with us as God's people.
The 24-week study covers the whole Bible by moving between the Old and New Testaments—discussing books from each in a way that shows the interconnectedness of scripture as a whole.
Each week's episode includes a thought-provoking 20-minute video conversation between biblical experts that stimulates further discussion and reflection among the group members.
These conversations, held around a handcrafted table, serve as a model for the kind of learning and sharing that is central to Covenant Bible Study. Through community—through shared reflection and engagement together—we can best discover the Bible's transformative power.
