Three Month Series
Small group teachings and discussions about character development, based on the lives of David and Saul.
Most of us are familiar with the main figures in the Old Testament, but how does that help us today? What can we possibly learn from the mistakes of those that have come before us? This curriculum is a character study from 1 & 2 Samuel and Kings. In this study we will learn how to live well from the “Inside Out” by looking at the successes and failures of people like Samuel, David and Solomon. These are high powered and extremely down to earth people who make the same core mistakes that we often make today.
This curriculum is designed to be used in a small group setting and utilizes a slightly different format than our other curriculum. It uses the Hook, Book, Look, Took method. You can read more about it in the second page of the download.
