Curriculum List for 2012 (updated for 2015)

Don’t know what your group will study next? This blog post is here to help!

Below is our updated annual list of recommended curriculums and ideas. Just Google any listed to find publisher’s description, reviews, and even preview videos in some cases.

Leaders, it might be best to pray and select the direction you personally want to lead.  But, if you feel you need the group’s input, choose your top 3 or 5 options and then present them for a vote. Come visit our curriculum library to preview these options.

There are hundreds of great resources not on my list. If you know of others, or discover something great, please share them with me!

 To offset your cost and build our small groups resource library, we will purchase the DVDs and/or leader guides. Contact me to place the orders! (Participants purchase their own accompanying study guides.)
