A Course In

by Richard L. Floyd

Are you looking for a program that will help adults gain a better understanding of the basics of the Christian faith and a deeper appreciation for the power of God in their lives? A Course in Basic Christianity is an eight-week (one session per week) course developed and used successfully in dozens of local churches.

It is a refresher course for adults for whom it has been a long time since Confirmation or membership class. It is equally helpful for a new member or a long-standing one.

Here is what some pastors say about it:

“An excellent course for a group study, easy to follow and to lead. With well-selected readings from the great thinkers of Christian history, you will leave wanting to learn more about theology and the story of the church. Intellectually rigorous without being off-putting, this course is perfect for the thinking Christian who has forgotten, or perhaps never had, confirmation class.” Lillian Daniel, Senior Minister, First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, author of When Spiritual but Not Religious is Not Enough and co-author (with Martin Copenhaver) of  This Odd and Wondrous Calling.

“I have held the Course in Basic Christianity 6 times and always with tremendous response from a fully enrolled class of adults.”Steven A. Small, Senior Pastor, West Boylston Congregational Church, Massachusetts.

“I like Pastor Rick Floyd’s A Course in Basic Christianity.” Anthony Robinson in his What’s Theology Got to Do with it?

  1. Thank you for your devotional today, April 10, 2014, in “Stillspeaking”. What great illustrations from Scripture using the Cinderella story. That would be a good discussion to have with anyone of any age. I’m thinking teens who find the Bible “distant” or “non-applicable” to their lives today, they could have some great conversation. .
