We can’t believe we’re already into July! Can you? To round out these summer months, we’ll be jumping into our next online Bible study, Gideon by Priscilla Shirer, starting August 8!
Over 7 weeks, we’ll learn to see our weaknesses as gifts given specifically and strategically by God, and we’ll see how our weakness allows us to experience God’s strength in our lives. If you’ve ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered (and haven’t we all?), this study is for you.
To learn more about this study, watch the video below or click here.
So how will this work?
We’ll study together on our online Bible study website: onlinestudy.
When you visit onlinestudy.smallgroup.

- You’ll need to grab a copy of the Gideon Bible study book. Friends outside the U.S., check out this list of online retailers around the world.)
- We’ll post a new video session on onlinestudy.smallgroup.com on Thursdays at 5 a.m. CT (barring any technical difficulties). Once you log in, you will see the available sessions.
- For the first week, you’ll watch the video on August 8 first and then complete the week one material in the study book before we meet again!
- Go to your email and add “firstname.lastname@example.org” to your contacts. This way, our emails are less likely to go to your spam folder.
- You can plan for the session videos to be 30-50 minutes long.

Our hope for the online Bible studies is not that they’ll replace community in real life. Grab a friend or two or ten and do this study together. If you’re studying solo, that’s great too! We are so glad you’re here and hope you find friends and fellowship as we learn together.

**A note about the videos: For Gideon, we will be offering the entire Bible study videos online for free for a limited time. Videos will remain up until October 4, 2019, allowing some breathing room for those who join in late or miss a couple of weeks. After that time you can rent or purchase the video sessions here.
