622: Year 1

PBSC-webart-622-pagebanner

If you have not yet taken the time to review the introductory notes on how to get the most out of the study series, we’d like to invite you to do that now! View the introductory notes here. Skip to Year 2 lessons here.

The first year of 622 is organized into six units (see below). These sections begin with a unit exploring our relationship with God – by whom we are known completely, loved unconditionally and destined for a glorious future. From there, we look at the meaning of praying together, the story of our spiritual ancestors (and how we can pray “with” them), building a personal habit of devotion, the significance of Holy Communion, and how all of this impacts our lives as individuals and as a Church. The flow of lessons takes into consideration the Church calendar, so that lessons touching on the Incarnation coincide approximately with Advent, and an in-depth look at Holy Communion occurs during Lent.

If you’re just starting out with “622”, then Year 1 is the best place to begin. Following are the links to the documents that you will need to run the curriculum: the “622” service booklet, an optional booklet containing the “Prayers and Thanksgivings” section from the BCP, and the leader’s notes and student handouts for each of the 42 lessons. We’re excited and hopeful about what God will do in your group in the coming year!

LET US KNOW HOW IT’S GOING!

We’d love to hear from you on what is working well and what can be improved in future projects. And in the meantime, we’ll be praying for you!

Almighty God, who hast committed to thy holy Church the care and nurture of thy children: Enlighten with thy wisdom those who teach and those who learn, that, rejoicing in the knowledge of thy truth, they may worship thee and serve thee all the days of their life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. BCP p. 47
