This winter, Living Water’s Community Groups will be going through a 6-week course called the Abide Bible Study. In this study, we will learn five innovative practices that will take you beyond just reading the Bible. This study will help you deeply engage with Scripture in a way that fits your unique personality and learning style.

Jesus instructed his followers to "abide" in him so they could lead fruitful lives. The Abide Bible Course will equip you to establish a daily, lifelong habit of abiding om God's Word so you can hear his voice. The five practices that will be covered are:

  • Praying Scripture

  • Engaging Through Art

  • Journaling

  • Picturing It

  • Contemplating
