Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
'Companions in Christ' helps individuals grow deeper in the grace of God through the Christian community experience. The 28-week study includes daily individual scripture study and meditation coupled with weekly group reflection, exercises, and accountability. The group experience provides support and education for community spiritual development and practices—including study, prayer, and service.
The entire study is organized into five units: "Embracing the Journey: The Way of Christ"; "Feeding on the Word: The Mind of Christ"; "Deepening Our Prayer: The Heart of Christ"; "Responding to Our Call: The Work of Christ"; and "Exploring Spiritual Guidance: The Spirit of Christ." The Upper Room offers a "Church Pack" that includes ten participant books, two leader guides, and marketing material. Shorter studies are also available, including an eight-week study, entitled "Forgiveness," that focuses on Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.
Many congregations have completed 'Companions in Christ' and witness to the powerful growth experienced with God and with each other.
