How can I engage with my small group or church on Facebook?
Are you a church or small group leader looking for a way to connect your members together to promote community during the 40-Day Prayer Challenge Online Bible study? If you already have a Facebook group for your church or small group, great! We want to encourage you to use it during the study so everyone in your church or group participating can connect, engage, and encourage one another as they go through the study together. If you don’t have an existing Facebook group, don’t worry! We’re here to help you get one set up with a few easy-to-follow steps! Click here for instructions…
I want to invite other members of my church or small group to join the study. What is the best way to do that?
It’s easy! Just send the registration page link (https://www.studygateway.com/prayer) in an email and they can sign up.
I'm already part of a small group at church. How can we do this study with you?
All of the online activities associated with this study are optional. You can still structure your group like a traditional Bible study using the free downloads we’ve provided and the study materials in the book. Feel free to follow our study calendar and meet every week or set up your own schedule and go at your group’s pace.
What communication can I expect to receive? I don't want to be inundated with emails.
After sign up you’ll receive an email a week as you’re going through the 40-Day Prayer Challenge. We’ll keep you updated on the assigned reading for the week and where to watch your companion videos. During the 40 days you’ll also be receiving daily prayer reminders written by Mark.
My Internet connection is slow. Can I buy the DVDs and watch the videos that way?
Yes! The videos that are on the DVDs are the same videos as what will appear online. This is a nice option if you’re in a traditional church setting and don’t have an Internet connection, or if you want to do the study later and go at your own pace! Click here to get the DVD from ChurchSource. Save 40% off with promo code: PRAYER40
I don't live in the USA and want to do this Bible study. How can I obtain the materials please?
Anyone with Internet access can watch the videos for FREE week-by-week, and follow along with our weekly emails. If you are outside the U.S., we recommend checking with your local Christian bookstore or online retailer. In Canada and the United Kingdom, for example, the materials are often available from Amazon.
