Hello! We’re so glad you’re studying with us. We hope you’re learning more and more and realizing there’s no reason to be intimidated—we’re all learning together! Thank you for participating in the comments. We love reading what you have to say.
Here’s how this will work: (We’ll post this every week as a refresher, but if you already got the hang of it, feel free to skip to the video.) Each week, you’ll come here and watch the video with Angie Smith. The videos are about 5-10 minutes long and have some fresh insight from Angie. She will lead us through the Seamless study week by week. Once you watch the video, we have some questions for you to answer in your group or in the comments section of the post (or in both!). We want this to be available to those who are studying together and those going solo. Some of the questions ask you to get to know your fellow Bible study participants and we hope the interactions you have will be both challenging and encouraging. Each week at the end of the video, Angie will let you know the homework assignment for the next week. You can do the homework in the Seamless Bible Study Book. We highly recommend you getting a copy for this study, since that is where most of the studying will take place! You can get a copy at your local LifeWay Store, by clicking here, or get an ebook version here. That’s it! The study will be seven weeks long.
If you can’t participate right now, or if you miss a week, don’t worry. We will leave these posts up for you to do when you’re ready! You can find all the older ones using our Online Bible Studies tab at the top of the blog. Just click on it and then the Seamless study.
A note about the Bible study videos: Seamless is a video-based Bible study. These videos are available to rent or download here and also through the purchase of a Leader Kit. These videos are not the same as the free videos available here on the blog. The videos for purchase are longer (around 15 minutes each) and dive deeper into the topic of each session. They are the videos that go with the viewer guides in the Bible study book. We recommend them if you want to hear more of Angie’s teaching and learn even more about the seamless thread uniting all of God’s Word.
OK, I think we’re ready for Session 3!
