Come to the Table
Now available for use in the home with small groups!
Come to the Table is a new guided study discussion for Catholics seeking to renew their conversion to Christ. It is designed by an R.C.I.A. expert, Mary Birmingham, and acclaimed author, Bill Huebsch. Mary Birmingham has developed several resources for R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) and is a key resource for "Team RCIA."
This new series is a set of seven (7) key themes of Catholic belief, divided into +/- 29 sessions. Each topic comes with an easy-to-use worksheet for the participants, with key teaching points, discussion questions, prayers, and personal challenge for full integration. The aim of the topics is to lead the participants to a deeper love and commitment to Christ, and to give them confidence in the faith they know.
As the group grows, another should branch off with a new leader, and so forth so the discussion groups remain at a small, manageable number and thus retain the "small community" ambiance. Come to the Table provides excellent, fail-safe leader guides for each topic, with an abundance of online training resources, and personal assistance.
Materials for leader and participants are easy-to-use PDF documents, which are in a zip file, to make e-mailing a snap! The participant worksheets may be printed in color or black & white. They can be printed on letter size, or legal and automatically adjust the size of print for either size. The leader guides are grouped by the head topic, and organized into smaller individual sessions.
