For those of us who grew up attending church and Sunday School, we often forget not everyone has the same experience. And that’s okay! God calls people to Him at different times, so if you’re just settling into this life of faith, you’re welcome here.
Here are nine studies to get you started:
Seamless by Angie Smith | 7 Sessions
While the 66 books of the Bible can seem disconnected at first glance, this study will show you how every book—from Genesis to Revelation—connects as one seamless thread. You’ll journey through the Bible chronologically to discover new parallels between the people, places, and promises of the Bible. If you want to gain clarity and confidence in your understanding of Scripture, this one is for you. Find this study here.
Open Your Bible by Amanda Bible Williams & Raechel Myers | 7 Sessions
If you’re longing to hear from God, you’re not alone. We all are! The truth is that we can encounter Him in the pages of His Word every day. Whether you open your Bible daily, have never read it before, or struggle to study Scripture, this 7-session study will leave you with a greater appreciation for the Word of God, a deeper understanding of its authority, and a stronger desire to know it inside and out.

Disciples Path | 4 volumes, 13 sessions each
Instead of one study, Disciples Path is a series of resources founded on Jesus’ model of discipleship. The first study, The Beginning, will introduce the basic practices and elements of faith, including the centrality of Christ, the crucial practice of prayer and Scripture reading, community, and what it means to be on mission for God. Find this one here.
Raised Together by Gloria Furman | 8 Sessions
Have you studied the Book of Colossians yet? Paul’s letter to the church at Colossae encourages believers to live out the reality of the doctrine of Christ—He is God, He is supreme, and He is sufficient. We have been buried with Him and raised to life with Him as new creations, knit together in love.
In 8 sessions, explore themes of foundational Christian doctrine through verse-by-verse study of Colossians. Learn who Christ is, who you are in Him, and how to grow and mature in your faith.

Finding I AM by Lysa TerKeurst | 6 Sessions
Do you have an ache in your soul that keeps you up at night? Jesus not only cares about this deep, spiritual wrestling, He also wants to see you through it. Join Lysa TerKeurst on the streets of Israel to explore the seven I AM statements of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. Be prepared to trade feelings of emptiness for the fullness of knowing who Jesus is like never before.

Psalm 23 by Jennifer Rothschild | 7 Sessions
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have what I need.
You can’t go wrong beginning with Psalm 23. It’s a verse that even life-long believers know by heart but often don’t fully grasp. Over 7 sessions, explore the depths of God’s compassionate care and learn how your vulnerability can be a strength because of the Shepherd’s goodness throughout each season of life. The Shepherd is always at your side no matter where life takes you.
