Recommended Curriculum Tool

We know selecting curriculum for your group is not always easy.  To assist you, we have reviewed studies and put them into categories under Knowing God, Loving God or Serving God, listed how many weeks the study lasts, if a DVD is available to rent (rentals available only to Resurrection leaders) and made suggestions to the level of the study (advanced, intermediate or entry level).  You can access a printable version of our curriculum catalog by clicking here.  If you would like to rent a DVD at the cost of $1 per week contact Lee Harizanoff at

Rob Smith's Disciple 1 Notes

Succinct, decidedly informal notes intended as a meeting leadership tool.  Weekly sequences of prioritized discussion topics, questions and issues for the group.  There is structural diversity using a combination of workbook material, scripture reading assignments and life applications.  Occasional side explorations of related historical or geographic matters. Discussion topics and approaches vary from week to week, for a refreshing mix of approaches.
