I didn’t expect for my perspective to change, but it did. All this time, Mary has been a distant figure to me—someone only sung and spoken about. Working on Mary: Devoted to God’s Plan was transformational.
When we set out to create a life-changing curriculum for churches for the advent and Christmas season, we didn’t expect to reexperience the advent of Christ ourselves. But he became lord over us in a more impactful way than ever before. As we related to Mary’s struggle to understand God’s son—and his transition from being a safe child to being the God she knew, couldn’t control, and needed to learn from—we were changed. We became better bearers of Christ’s image, and we realized how much more we had to grow.
Mary: Devoted to God’s Plan is about understanding what God wants to do in your life. By journeying with Mary, you’ll learn about your own journey. What transformation does Christ want to bring in your life? How is Christ moving from being a “safe zone” for you to being a God you can follow anywhere? You’ll study with an in-depth, applicable commentary, and you’ll share your insights with elegant infographics, artifact images, and maps—prebuilt as slideshows for you.
The curriculum has everything you need as a pastor, teacher or small group leader:
- Preaching resources and sermon starters for pastors and teachers
- Videos, slides, and media for the tech team
- Bulletin inserts and handouts for the congregation
- Discussion guides and videos for small group leaders
- A take-home book for small group members, available separately for only $14.95
This is a comprehensive program for your entire church. You’ll dig deeper into the Bible—together. You’ll even learn the methods of better Bible study, thanks to information about the ancient world and Bible study tips.
Christ uniquely made you, just like he uniquely made Mary. Christ’s work in you and through you can bring transformation to the lives of others. This curriculum will help you in that process.
