Every week of class (also known as a “lesson) we’ll grow together through:
A pre-recorded presentation (approx. 60 min) from your teacher–you’ll not only hear, but also see visuals and your teacher speaking. It’s recorded (not “live”) so you can watch (pause, re-watch, etc.) whenever it’s most convenient for you.
Weekly reading assignments, primarily from the Bible and supplemented with quality secondary sources. (View the annual calendar and week-by-week lesson plan for each class at our parent-site, cbsmich.org/participants).
Discussion enables us to grow in our familiarity with the Bible,share our faith, and experience a community of like-minded individuals, interested in studying the Bible in-depth.
Choose from 3 types of discussion settings:
- Live video-conference group at a set time
- “Anytime” written discussion board in GoogleClassroom
- Gather a group of local friends or parishioners to meet (in a convenient location or by video-conference)
Every lesson includes a handful of short-answer questions designed to prepare you for small group discussion. You’ll send/submit these to your teacher, who will provide written feedback and insights–a way to grow and ponder God’s Word as an individual.
A weekly written or recorded prayer prompt connected to the week’s content will be shared by your teacher.
Live Q&A (Optional)
Each week your teacher will host a “live” video conference for open conversation. It’s a great time for Q&A on the week, new questions on previous lessons, and conversation about living out the Catholic faith. It’s optional, simply drop-in when your interest/schedule allows. Teachers will schedule times based on the interests and preferences of the class.
