We can’t believe it’s already almost June! Can you? We don’t know about you, but now—perhaps more than ever—we’re incredibly grateful for the digital community we have with you here. To kick off the summer months, we’re preparing to jump into our next online Bible study, Jude by Jackie Hill Perry, starting June 25!
While often overlooked, the Book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception. In this 7-session study, you’ll dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth. We serve others well when we share the whole gospel with them, not just the parts deemed attractive by our culture.

So how will this work?
We’ll study together on our online Bible study website: onlinestudy.smallgroup.com.
If you have a teen girl in your life, we’d love to have her join us too! The video teaching we’ll be watching together each week is the women’s teaching, but our friends at LifeWay Girls have provided a guide for how to watch and discuss the videos with the teen girl in your life! Click here for the guide!
When you visit onlinestudy.smallgroup.com, you’ll need to log in or create an account.* We know passwords are not fun, but we have good reasons! Because you’ll be logging in, you’ll have the ability to track your personal progress as you study and see which sessions you’ve watched! And, you’ll be the first one to know about future online Bible studies.
*If you’ve ever purchased something on LifeWay.com, you should have created a LifeWay Account. That is the email and password you’ll want to use to log in. If you no longer use the email you originally set up as your LifeWay Account, feel free to click “Register” to create a new account. This email is where you’ll also receive email notifications to remind you that the newest session is now available to watch, so be sure you select one where you’d like to be receiving emails!
Here are the rest of the details you’ll need to participate in this study:
- Jude is 7 weeks long. You’ll get to watch the full video teaching for free for a limited time!**
- You’ll need to grab a copy of the Jude Bible study book. (Friends outside the U.S., check out this list of online retailers around the world. Or, check out the eBook version of the study!)

- You can plan for the session videos to be 8-20 minutes long.
- For the first week, you’ll watch the video first and then complete the Week 1 material in the study book before we meet again!

**A note about the videos: We will be offering the entire Bible study videos online for free for a limited time. Videos will be available until August 20, 2020, allowing some breathing room for those who join in late or miss a couple of weeks. After that time you can rent or purchase the video sessions here.
