Good news! In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis, The Good Book Club is going to add an Easter “season” to its repertoire. Participants will study the Gospel of Matthew, in part to celebrate Easter and in part as a way of coming together.
As part of this event, during the Easter season, ChurchNext will offer a FREE, live course called Introducing Matthew with Vicki Garvey. Vicki is a respected teacher and author and former Canon for Lifelong Education at the Episcopal Diocese of Chicago. She has led workshops across the United States and internationally on Bible study, and we are very blessed to have her teaching this class. Vicki taught the live Epiphany course Introducing John this year, with exceptional results.
Here’s how it works: from April 23-May 28, every Thursday night at 8 p.m. E.S.T., participants will click on a link to a Zoom classroom to listen to Vicki Garvey’s talks about Matthew Gospel and to ask questions/participate in discussion. Course materials will be available on an online ChurchNext course page. We will also post recordings of the class meetings on the course page, so don’t worry if you can’t attend every class meeting.
You can incorporate this course into your Christian formation materials as you plan for the Easter season — have students participate in the class and then discuss its content on the course page (where discussion questions are easy to post and comment on) or in your own forum later on. Or you can just take it on your own.
Sign up here, and we look forward to seeing you on April 23!
