We are currently studying The Gospel According to John: An Encounter with Grace and Truth by Jennifer McGaw Phelps, Tami Palladino, and Matthew Phelps.
Each lesson begins with individual home study which involves reviewing the Scripture readings and the lesson pages along with prayer (writing out your responses to the questions is optional).
On Thursday mornings we meet as a large group and also in small groups:
9:45 -10:00 AM: Social Time (coffee, tea, conversation)
10:00 - 10:15 AM: Gather as a large group for opening session
10:15-11:25 AM: Small Groups meet to discuss the study questions
11:30 AM-Noon: "Wrap-up" session
As you can see on the schedule page, we meet occasionally for large group potlucks. On these days, everyone is invited to bring a dish to share. We don't structure this, but simply ask you to bring whatever you'd like. If we have all cookies, then that's what we eat that day (but it does always seem to work out fine). The most important part of the potluck is fellowship.
