In anticipation of the upcoming release of TOGETHER, our inclusive Bible study curriculum,  we wanted to give you a peek at the Scope and Sequence, and also explain a little bit about the overall plan for this study.

Not sure what TOGETHER is? Check out our blog post from a few months ago that explains in greater detail the vision and purpose for this exciting new Bible study offering.

The curriculum for TOGETHER has two parallel tracks of study. The first looks a lot like our current materials, which is appropriate for most active Friendship groups. The second is designed to support the formation of small Bible study groups that include and encourage adults with and without disabilities.

In creating TOGETHER, we hoped to create materials that would allow all of our friends to participate in a truly adult Bible study as an important part of the body of Christ, and we kept that in mind when designing the Scope and Sequence for this project. However, although some of the topics covered in this study may be particularly relevant to friends with disabilities, all are broad enough to be relevant to every member of your group.

The study will go through four sequential units, each one meant to build on the previous one. Several units in the curriculum are topical, such as Choose Courage (see a sample of this study here), Living with Pain, and Unwrapping Your Gifts. The remaining units are scripture studies, such as Jesus: Face to Face and Christmas: Mary.

See below for the complete Year 1 Scope and Sequence, and as always, be sure to contact us with any questions about TOGETHER or Friendship - we love to hear from you!
