Leader’s Guide
Student’s Book
Worship Leaflet



Through the exploration of biblical text, adult study groups are invited into a deepened relationship with God. The Present Word engages participants in an experiential style of learning—connecting faith and life. This quarterly resource features an Adult Leader’s Guide and an Adult Student’s Book.

The Present Word nurtures individual growth of the participants as children of God rooted in the Christian community, life in the Spirit and Christian hope. Discussion and activities encourage participants to live out their faith in their individual and congregational activities.

In the quarterly Leader’s Guide, each week’s session is carefully outlined with a full description of the materials needed, plus reproducible pages and resources to help the leader. The quarterly Student’s Book includes a Scripture reading for the lesson, study materials with reflection questions throughout, and a prayer after each lesson.

The quarterly Worship Leaflets contain material for a short worship service that can be used as an opening session during class or in other settings. They also provide Scripture and questions for meditation.
