Are you aware that we have an amazing Faith Formation Curriculum produced right here in the Wisconsin Conference? The Rev. Stacy Myers, from First Congregational United Church of Christ in River Falls, is the author of a book soon-to-be published by Pilgrim Press. Picture the Bible is a set of original collages from commissioned artists depicting 52 individual Bible stories. The images and corresponding education resources offer a creative approach to Bible study that fosters biblical literacy and interpretation, and encourages people to see connections between their lives and the biblical story. Picture the Bible adapts to a wide variety of congregational and educational settings, and can be used in both virtual and in-person gatherings.
In the next few weeks, every congregation in the Conference will receive a mailed package containing this 4-week Picture the Bible curriculum. Packets include:
- Four art reproductions of biblical stories (printed two-sided)
Four age levels of resource pages for each of the four biblical texts – Jesus Blesses the Children, The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Feeds 5,000 People and Let Justice Roll.
- A 4-page information and ideas guide to using Picture the Bible
- A “Little Book” with four stories and activities
