Serendipity Bible for Groups

There are a lot of good study materials, books, and curricula for small groups to use.  But why not study the Bible itself?  The Bible is a good book, too!


As Adventists we used to be known as people of the Book.  Now, we tend to be people of opinions.  We need to help people get back into their Bibles.  This is why I encourage groups to use the Serendipity Bible for Groups, fourth edition.

New Beginnings Small Group Bible Study

Each week’s study begins with a kickoff questions that leads into a 25 minute DVD presentation covering one of the fundamental beliefs of the Seventh-day Adventists Church.  A relational and uniquely Adventist, life application Bible discussion follows.  This discussion is based on one Bible passage which complements and affirms the fundamental belief presented by the DVD.
