Dwell
Dwell curriculum awakens kids imaginations to the ongoing story of God that starts in the
pages of Scripture and continues in our lives today. Kids, young teens, and their leaders grow
in faith as they explore each story and retell it together. At the middle school level, young
teens discover how Reformed/Presbyterian doctrine grows out of the narrative of Scripture.
With Dwell, kids do more than hear a story. They experience it. Take-home pieces and lesson
elements are designed to stick with kids throughout the week. Each level of Dwell has a name
that reflects the experience.

Walk With Me
This Sunday school curriculum for preschool through grade 8 helps children learn to know
God, grow together in faith, and show Gods love to others. It encourages leaders and kids to
become a small group togetherto care for each other, to help each other learn and grow,
and to have fun together.

WalkWithMeOnline.org

Since its release in 2004, Walk With Me has nurtured the faith of thousands of children.
While Gods story remains relevant from generation to generation, curriculum needs regular
updating in order to remain current. Walk With Me is aging, and since our newer Dwell
curriculum builds on the best features of Walk With Me, we have made the decision to begin
phasing out Walk With Me after the 2015-2016 Sunday school year. As of July 1, 2016, Walk
With Me materials may not be available for purchase as inventory sells out.

Leaving Egypt
Discovering God in the Wilderness Places

Finding Your Story in the Psalms

Chuck DeGroat

Kevin Adams

With vivid personal stories from his experience


as a therapist, theologian, and pastor, Chuck
DeGroat demonstrates how the biblical story
of the exodus offers a powerful paradigm for
our experiences of enslavement, liberation,
and wilderness today. Walking Israels path to
the promised land, readers will rediscover the
renewing and liberating power of God in their
own real-life struggles and temptations.

Sung, whispered, shouted, and groaned by


Muslims and Jews, Protestants and Catholics,
Bob Marley and J.S. Bach, the psalms express
the faith of a thousand generations. People
have used psalms to voice their deepest
anguish and delight, to comfort others, to
express emotions they hardly dare to admit.

Discussion questions follow each chapter, making this book a natural for
small group study.

In this book Adams shares stories of unlikely


psalm pray-ers and the unpredictable God,
opening up the honest and earthy world of the psalms in new and unexpected
ways. And he invites us to find our own story within that community of faith.

Song of a Scientist
The Harmony of a

The Day Metallica Came to Church


Searching for the Everywhere God in
Everything

Calvin B. DeWitt

John Van Sloten

World-renowned environmental scientist Cal


DeWitt is widely regarded as a pioneer in
opening the eyes of the Christian community
to the wonders of Gods creation and the
dangers of its degradation by human beings.
With the rare combination of scientific rigor,
poetic imagination, and deep Christian faith,
DeWitt probes the twin books of Gods Word
and Gods world, nudging us toward grateful stewardship and praise, joining
the doxology of all creation.

What do the music of Metallica and J.S. Bach,


the film Crash, and stories about Batman have
in common? According to author and pastor
John Van Sloten, God can speak through all
of themif were listening. Drawing from his
own often startling and sometimes wrenching
journey of discovery, Van Sloten shows how
God can speak to us through anything and
everythingheavy metal music, R-rated films, sports, and even the latest
fashions.

Earthwise
A Guide to Hopeful
Creation Care
Calvin B. DeWitt
Earthwise is about
living in harmony
with the natural world
around usand
sharing the joy of this
living.
Sadly, our ways of life
in todays global economy have led to increasing
land and habitat destruction, pollution, species
extinction, buildup of greenhouse gases, and
other degradations of the earth. But rather than
grovel and wring our hands in despair, lifelong
creation care scientist Calvin B. DeWitt suggests
we discover a joyful, positive attitude about
working together for good in this world. Looking
forward in hope, we can make changes and take
positive, lasting action that is more in harmony
with the way the world works and is meant to
be. This book, now in its third edition, helps to
provide us and our friends, neighbors, coworkers,
and fellow citizens with practical information and
ideas to become truly earthwise.

exclusive. But in

Gods world teach us about creation, evolution,
and intelligent design.
Origins helps you develop a deeper

experience
with the Bible
is different. To
some of us the
Bible feels like a
strange, ancient book filled with odd language
and symbols. For others, the Bible may feel too
familiar. Maybe youve read it so often that youre
tired of hearing the same old stories.
But did you ever wonder how your life story
connects with the story of the Bible? Find
out with this study. Great Bible study for
small groups, adult education, young adults,
newcomers, and those familiar with the Bible.

Dont Invite Them


to Church
Moving from a Come
and See to a
Go and Be Church
Karen Wilk
If you love your
neighbors, you should
invite them to church,
right? Wrong.
Loving your neighbors
isnt about getting them to join you on Sundays.
Its about living your faith right where you are and
BEING the church to the people around you.
This flexible guidebook will help you, your small
group, or your church get started in neighborhood
ministry and missional living. It includes ideas for
group meetings, practices to help you develop
a better spiritual life, and real-life ideas for
reaching out to your neighborhood.
If you really want to know your neighbors and
love them like Jesus would, dont invite them to
church. BE the church.

(Un)Hurt
The Healing Power of
Forgiveness
David Snapper
We all know we
should forgive others,
because Christ
commands us to. But
we often feel helpless
when the hurt seems
too big, or we just
dont know where
to start. This practical, biblical video workshop
for small groups was developed over ten years
by pastor David Snapper, who has facilitated
it in many churches and organizations. In four
sessions, Snapper leads your group step by
step through the process of forgiving. Video
segments are followed by both group discussion
and individual work. The leader guide contains
helps for adapting the workshop to a six-session
format or a retreat setting. Each small group
member should have a participants workbook.
Workshop Kit: Contains a leader guide,
participants workbook, and a DVD (which
includes leader guide and video session intros)

Living and Loving


Life
Devotional
Reflections
Howard Vanderwell

Over the past thirty


years, thousands
of readers have
used Twilightfor
their personal
devotions. In these
updated meditations,
Andrew Kuyvenhoven shares a depth of biblical
knowledge and insight that will strengthen your
faith and inspire you to grow each day in your
own knowledge and love of God.

This is a book about


living life to the
fullest, but its not
a how-to book.
Think of it instead as
an extended pastoral
conversation in
which reader and author open their hearts to
each other as they reflect on the richest and
most satisfying ways in which to use the years
God graciously gives.

This classic devotional leads you through an


entire year of meaningful moments with God.
Each months meditations follow a book of the
Bible, such as the gospel of John or the Psalms;
or a biblical theme, such as the meaning of
Jesus resurrection or the coming of Gods
kingdom.

Beginning with the idea that Christ came that we


might have life to the full, Vanderwell uses his
own experiences as a stepping stone to reflect
on the adventure of a life well lived.

Though twilight is an excellent time for


meditation, as the author suggests, you can
use this devotional at any time of day to take a
rejuvenating break with God.

Topics include Heart Health, Formation, Worship,


Living Deeply, Praying the Psalms, When Its
Cloudy, The Seasons of Life, and Healthy Habits
for Daily Living.

In this series of

Schaap invites you
to take off on a riff
the way a blues
saxophonist might.
Even if you dont have a musical bone in your body,
he wants you to pick up a pen or a pencil and
respond to the melody these meditations bring to
mind. Let loose. Let yourself go. Let yourself dream.

You dont have to wonder whether your thoughts


pass muster or if youve got it right. The psalms

Friendship Program
Guide
This how-to resource
helps a group leader
start and organize a new
Friendship program
from choosing materials
and defining roles, to
recruiting friends and
mentors, to building community. Available as a
free download online.

Friendship Ministries has supported more than 1,200 organizations and churches
(from 65+ denominations) in starting such programs.
What Is a Friendship Program?
The purpose of a Friendship program is to nurture the spiritual growth of people
with intellectual disability (friends) in the context of personal and meaningful
relationships.
Participants in a Friendship program include a group leader, mentors, and friends.
The group leader coordinates the program and presents the Bible story during the
group session; the mentors pair up with friends during one-on-one time, which
is a breakout session used to build relationships, talk about the Bible story, and
complete the activities in the take-home paper.
Were Here to Help!
Friendship staff can answer any questions you might have about a Friendship
program and/or general disability ministry.
