Explore the greatest stories of all as a family. The Path: Family Storybook Facilitators Guide is the family-friendly version of Exploring the Bible, an all-ages curriculum that uncovers the story of the Bible in a clear and easy-to-read format.
About the course
This free twenty-six session curriculum can be used in conjunction with the adult/youth course Exploring the Bible, which is better suited for adults and older children, or on its own as a family program. The sessions included in this curriculum are designed to help families with young children encounter the Bible at their own level, and begin to understand how the individual stories of the Bible fit together into one greater story: the story of God's incredible love for us.
Weekly class sessions correspond exactly to the chapters in course companion book The Path: Family Storybook, which participants will read each week as a family to prepare for each session. The guide contains a link to a downloadable PDF of the weekly chapters, which facilitators must print out and distribute to participant's weekly. Alternatively, The Path: Family Storybook is available for purchase, and is a wonderful family resource to keep for years to come.
Living Discipleship Series
Exploring the Bible is part of the Living Discipleship series of curricula, funded by a generous grant from The Episcopal Church's Constable Fund. Other courses in the series include Celebrating the Saints and Practicing Our Faith (coming in late 2017).
