Experiencing Christ Together, Student Edition Curriculum

The Experiencing Christ Together series is the newest discipleship course from Life Together. These six new study guides have six sessions each and enable small groups to explore the power and life application of Jesus’ teaching on the five biblical purposes of a Christian life by closely examining Christ’s model in the Gospels. The first book lays the foundation of who Christ is and what he has done for us. The other five books explore how Jesus trained his followers to live out the five basic biblical purposes for life. Each study includes a group project.

Students understand that they were created for a reason—they know God had something in mind when he knit them together. The challenge is helping your students unlock that knowledge and start living the life they were designed for.

Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition (modeled after Experiencing Christ Together adult curriculum) brings your students face to face with Jesus, the one who holds the key to living for God. By studying Jesus’ words and life, these small group studies will take your students to the heart of what it means to live purposefully for God.

Included in the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition curriculum are these studies:
* Beginning in Jesus
* Connecting in Jesus
* Growing in Jesus
* Serving Like Jesus
* Sharing Jesus
* Surrendering to Jesus

Taken together, the Experiencing Christ Together Student Edition curriculum represent thirty-six individual sessions (almost a year’s worth of small-group studies) all aimed at helping your students learn to follow God’s purpose for their lives. Each piece is available separately.

The Throne of Grace

Growing up my childhood was very dysfunctional. I didn’t know just how dysfunctional until I became an adult. As a teenager I found myself completely lost, heading in a destructive direction.
