Engage Small Group Curriculum
Jesus-Follower, You are Welcomed Here, As You Are!
Whether you are a small group or a house church, we get it. You are overwhelmed, overcommitted, and overconnected. So why would anyone take a couple of hours each week to attend one more thing? We believe that we have an answer to such a reasonable question. Engage groups are intentionally designed gatherings of hopeful Jesus-Followers—deeply Bible-centric dialogues—that provide a safe place where vital life-dialogues can occur, where each participant is equally honored and challenged to apply the simple uncluttered Gospel of Jesus Christ to the real lives of real people in the real world, beginning with themselves. We suppose that there is a place for debates and to show off how much you know. This is not that place! Our expectation each and every week is that your lives will be changed, maybe a little, maybe a lot, but changed by utilizing the power of the simple uncluttered Gospel. If this sounds like fun to you, welcome to Engage. You are welcomed here.
Engage Starter Kit: Jesus “Sees” and “Says” and “Heals”
The Engage Starter Kit is a bit of a “taster set”. In the Gospels, we come across provocative accounts where the author observes that Jesus “sees” or “says” or “heals.” Not just any “sees” or “says” or “heals,” the actions occur in contexts that raise obvious questions. What did it mean that Jesus saw? What did He see? What did the person(s) whom Jesus saw, feel? Why them? I want to be seen that way. You get the idea, right? Same with Jesus “says” or “heals.” Good news, there will be separate collections of each in the future. Have fun!
The Starter Kit includes everything that you will need. All of the six modules have instructive high quality videos and workbooks to guide your group through the material.
Two modules on Jesus “Sees” (Jesus Sees: The Rich Young Ruler (Mark 10:13-23), and Jesus Sees: The Samaritan Woman (John 4:5-29), two modules on Jesus “Says” (Jesus Says, “Let Down Your Nets!” (Lk 5:1-9, Jn 21:1-14) and Jesus Says, “You Didn’t Understand the Loaves” (Mk 6:30-50, 8:1-21) and lastly, two modules on Jesus “Heals” (Jesus Heals Blind Bartimaeus (Mk 10:46-52) and Jesus Heals the Bleeding Woman (Mk 5:24-34)).

Engage’s Transformative Lenten Study for Small Groups and House Churches
He is risen. He is risen indeed!
Engage: The JOURNEY is a very unique Lenten Bible study for small groups and home churches for a couple of reasons. First, we are following Mark’s narrative of Jesus’ journey to Jerusalem. Unlike the other Gospel writers, Mark doesn’t begin the journey at the so-called “Triumphal Entry.” He begins it at the Mt. of Transfiguration. Jesus’ long journey takes up about half of Mark’s entire manuscript. Curious?
Second, Engage: The JOURNEY is not just informative, but also life-transformational. Otherwise, what would bring busy and overwhelmed people back for more? Engage groups are intentionally designed gatherings of hopeful Jesus-Followers—deeply Bible-centric dialogues—that provide a safe place where vital life-dialogues can occur, where each participant is equally honored and challenged to apply the simple uncluttered Gospel of Jesus Christ to the real lives of real people in the real world, beginning with themselves.
