DC 301 - Week 1A

As we move into the only summer session of the 21-month Discipleship Curriculum, the format changes quite a bit. We take a break from memorizing new Bible verses and simply focus on reviewing the ones we've already learned (25 passages! Way to go!). We don't have questions to answer in the workbook that deal with a weekly topic. Rather, we'll be reading and taking notes and teaching for 12 weeks. And this format shift will be handled gently - at least for our group.

We'll break down the first week's workload into two weeks (1A and 1B, as the blog post title suggests), though we need to be ready to discuss all of that material next week (we'll review it at the second meeting). Also, by taking Memorial Day off, we'll grant two weeks to complete the second week workload, though we'll only spend one meeting covering it. But then from there, we'll plow ahead at the usual weekly pace. Once we pass the first 5-6 weeks, the workload will lighten and discussion time will diminish for the sake of teaching opportunities. More on that will follow as we near those meetings. But for now, here's how the workload might break down for week 1 of DC 301:

Monday - Read Genesis 1-11 and review memory verses, such as 1 Peter 2:12, Colossians 4:5-6, and 1 Timothy 6:10
Tuesday - Read Psalms 1-2 and 4-6 and the introduction of Larry Crabb's Inside Out
Wednesday - Read chapters 1-2 of Larry Crabb's Inside Out
Thursday - Read chapter 3 of Larry Crabb's Inside Out
Friday - Read chapters 1-3 of Ian Thomas' The Saving Life of Christ and review memory verses
