The Discovery Series is designed to help every Christian discover their own path to a life in Christ. The series places a remarkable resource into the hands of all congregations, regardless of their size or available staff.
Five courses provide comprehensive training for Baptism, confirmation, spiritual gifts assessment, discipleship and worship (with instructed Eucharist). The series is an invitation to spiritual growth and lays the groundwork to begin or continue a spiritual journey.
The Discovery Series: A Christian Journey is very flexible. You may structure an hour-long program, several morning-long classes or a weekend retreat to complete the confirmation class. Selected segments may be used to enhance your current education programs, such as Baptism preparation, adult education programs, prayer, or for your Sunday Christian formation hour.
A facilitator’s video and workbook pages with small group lessons are also included with the series.
No particular training is needed for someone to facilitate the group except preparation for each class. Materials include five courses, a facilitator’s video (how to set up the classroom), and a printed Facilitator’s/Participants’ Guide. The participant pages are available online for those who purchase the series so they can be copied locally. Each course has two to four segments (about 15 minutes), each of which is intended to be followed by group work (about 45 minutes), led by a local facilitator, using copies of the Facilitator’s and Participants’ Guide.
