Year 3 – The Saints

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.

If you’re just starting out with “622”, then Year 1 is the best place to begin. Skip to Year 1 lessons here.

In the third year of 622 we take a look at the saints – believers who faced challenging times and wrestled with personal failings, just as we do today, but they put their trust in God, and through them he did wonderful things. These people from far-flung eras and places are our family! We serve the same unchanging God. We share the same foundation. And God’s providential care is helping us towards the same goal. We have a lot in common with them and a lot to learn from them!

Following is a list of units and lesson titles.

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
