Bible Journey is an on-line course from Gordon-Conwell Seminary, which brings the Bible to life for the novice and experienced Bible reader alike. It has an interactive, engaging format with visuals and expertise you won’t find anywhere else.
Bible Journey can be used in several ways. You can subscribe and use the material independently. For those who would like to study with others, the Discipleship Task Force can assist in creating Bible Journey study groups either on Sunday morning or during the week. Finally, Bible Journey works very well for established Life Groups.
St. Michael’s Fall 2021 sermon series will be following Bible Journey’s lessons on Genesis. In Spring 2022, the sermons will track with Bible Journey’s lessons on the Book of John. By subscribing to Bible Journey, you will have a fuller experience of these important scriptures.
St. Michael’s has arranged for a group discount on a Bible Journey subscription – you will receive a year’s subscription for $40, instead of the usual $150. To get this discount, you will need to contact Catherine Bowen in the church office: by phone 843-723-0603 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The sermon series will be aligned with Courses 2 & 3 Genesis lessons from the Pentateuch Study. The Pentateuch Study is one of six major study modules in Bible Journey. Course 1 is an Old Testament Field Guide, with five lessons to help orient you to the geographical, historical, cultural, and religious context of the Old Testament. This section is optional, but would be an ideal way to get used to the Bible Journey format, as well as prepare you for the coming lessons. Here is the sermon series schedule and the corresponding Bible Journey lessons.
