Question and Answers
What other ways can we engage with the online participants?
We will host online chats throughout the study to talk about each week’s video lesson! These are hosted by a moderator/small group leader and are FREE for all participants.
Can I buy the DVDs and watch the videos that way?
Yes! You can buy the DVD in the FaithGateway store (it’s on sale at 40% off!) to have a copy of your own. You can also buy a combo pack that includes the DVD and the companion study guide.
I don't live in the USA and want to do this Bible study. How can I obtain the materials please?
Anyone with Internet access can watch the videos for FREE week by week, and follow along with our weekly emails. For the companion book, we recommend checking with your local Christian bookstore or online retailer (like Amazon Canada or Amazon UK).
I'm already part of a small group at church. How can we do this study with you?
All of the online activities associated with this study are optional. You can still structure your group like a traditional Bible study using the free downloads we’ve provided and the study materials in the book. Feel free to follow our study calendar and meet every week or set up your own schedule and go at your group’s pace
What communication can I expect to receive? I don't want to be inundated with emails.
After sign up you’ll receive an email a week as you’re going through the study. We’ll keep you updated on the assigned reading for the week and where to watch your companion videos. With your registration you will also start to receive the Study Gateway Online Bile Study newsletter. You can unsubscribe from any of these at any time.
Is this something I could do via Skype? I am looking for a study to do with my friends , but we are in different cities.
Absolutely! The weekly videos will be available online so you could get on Skype (or Google Hangouts, iChat, or whatever), watch them at the same time, then talk and process through the questions and each week’s reading together. We love this idea! What an awesome way to bond with friends across the miles.
