To engage the learners in a study of the Scripture text:
Divide the class into study groups of four to six. Distribute to one group copies of the “A Story of Faith” exercise from the activity page, which you can download here, rather than the questions in the printed lesson. When you reconvene the class as a whole, let this group report answers first.
- If all your learners are online, consider using Zoom Breakouts (which you can learn about here).
- If some of your learners are online and others are in the classroom with you, consider breaking the in-person learners into groups together and using Zoom Breakouts for the online learners.
To encourage personal application:
Distribute copies of the “A Legacy of Faith” exercise from the activity page, to be completed as indicated in no more than one minute. If distributed as a take-home, encourage completion by promising to begin next week’s class with it.
Note: Whenever you distribute copies of anything, use hard-copy (paper) handouts for those physically present and e-copies for those joining online via Zoom, etc.
