What is Upheaval?
Upheaval is a launch event for a new 7-part Discover Bible School course called Focus on Daniel. Our church will host Upheaval on October 28 at 7 PM.
At the event, we will invite people to sign up for in-person study groups. Each person who signs up will be given the first two lessons of Focus on Daniel and a quiz sheet. They should study the lesson and bring the completed quiz with them to the study group.
A youth and an adult study group will meet at the church at 8 PM Friday nights and 6 PM Saturday nights during November. Each night will cover a different lesson from Focus on Daniel. Study groups can also meet in homes.
During study group meetings, students will review their answers to the quiz, share what they have learned, and receive the next lesson. We encourage students to take time to enjoy light refreshments and get to know other members of their group when they meet, but not to drag meetings out. It's better to have consistent short meetings than try to cram everything into one long meeting.
The last Saturday in November we will have a graduation ceremony at the church for those who complete the course.
We would like the whole church to be involved in this event. No one can do everything, so please read prayerfully about the ways you can help and decide which you will do.
