Being Reformed

Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding is a series of biblically based studies that provides adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study—written by well-known and respected scholars—features Scripture, a prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection.

Based on the well-loved PC(USA) program of the same name, Engage curriculum inspires a journey of prayer and faith-sharing, equips members to live out and share their growing faith, and connects the church with its community. Each seven-session curriculum resource—Engage: Gospel, Engage: Discipleship, and Engage: Mission,—was developed in partnership with the Office of Evangelism, PC(USA), and Congregational Ministries Publishing.

The Present Word

Feasting on the Word Curriculum

Feasting on the Word Curriculum will engage adults in a deeper exploration of biblical texts. Christian faith will be enhanced when the Scriptures read and proclaimed in worship are reinforced and expanded on what they have been considering in their educational time. Education and worship can be mutually supportive in helping God's word in Scripture come alive in the Sunday morning experience.

  • We have so many members of our church who join from other denominations....I think these Adult Ed. pieces would be an invaluable tool for orienting them to what it means to be a part of the Reformed Tradition/Presbyterian. I also am pleased to see improvements in the Sunday School curriculum....when I taught it at the elementary level about 15 years ago, I must confess, it was not very inspiring! :/ by Lindsay Jonasse on 01/27/2012 at 3:33 p.m.

  • Margot, CMP does not have studies that feature a guest speaker on DVD, followed by discussion. If you would like to hear more about our Being Reformed studies that offer great opportunity for adult discussion and faith formation, contact We look forward to sharing more ideas with you. by Candace on 08/17/2010 at 9:05 a.m.

  • Do you have any curriculum that have a "guest speaker" by way of a DVD and then a discussion to follow that the class can participate in? by margot on 08/10/2010 at 4:50 p.m.
