SEAMLESS BIBLE STUDY
Teacher: Amanda Puckett
Grade: 9th-12th grade girls
Min: 4

 

Max: 12
Cost: $22

 

Description: This is a DVD led Bible study using Angie Smith's Seamless study (produced by Lifeway)
(Angie Smith is the wife of Todd Smith, lead singer of Dove Award winning group Selah)

 

Over the 10 week class period, we will use the study to cover the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Whether students have grown up hearing Bible stories or they're exploring Scripture for the first time, the full story of the Bible can be overwhelming.

 

This study allows the student to experience the Bible as a whole as they gain clarity and confidence in their understanding of Scripture. They will discover a biblical context that reshapes and brings to life stories from the Old and New Testaments. Each week is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies.
