Looking directly at stories about Jesus is one of the best ways for our not-yet-Christian friends to "come to the party" for themselves. Invite your friends to have a look at a passage from the Bible and engage in an open discussion...what we in InterVarsity/USA call a Group Investigating God (GIG).
Download the "Come to the Party" Evangelistic Bible Study Guide from Urbana 12. The guide recommends five passages from the book of Luke, as well as a step-by-step guide to leading the study.
The five recommended passages are:
Each PDF above contains the Scripture passage and a Leader's Notes page. You may also download all five sessions in one PDF, including Leader's Notes page.
For tips on leading GIGs and other downloadable studies, visit our GIG page.
You can also join the Come to the Party 2012 Facebook group, where you can ask questions and get advice from other new EBS/GIG leaders who attended Urbana 12.
