FLORENCE, Ala. (BNC) by Edmon Gallagher — Summer will be here soon, and many of you are making plans for your congregation. Perhaps the preacher will be conducting a few gospel meetings. Bible class teachers will be planning vacations. You may need a break from teaching to recharge. But you still desire quality material for the Bible class curriculum.

This valuable tool can serve as your summer series, a quarter in your Bible class curriculum, or even as a sermon during the absence of your minister.

The Berean Study Series is a free 13-lesson resource, consisting of 13 videos and a corresponding study guide (available as a pdf file or as a printed book) for each lesson. Each video is approximately 25 minutes long and can stand on its own or be used as a springboard for class discussion. Here’s a sample of the content you’ll find:

This inaugural series focuses on “The Church” and includes the following lessons:

  • From All Eternity (Dr. Ted Burleson)
