Study Track - Sermon Preparation

logo_200h.jpgWe have a series of courses and lectures that will help you prepare sermons during Advent and Lent using the lections of the Common Lectionary.

Related courses, taken sequentially in series is called a "study track." Our study tracks are composed of both courses and lectures that are directly related to their subject; in this case, congregational transformation.

 For more information about our study tracks, see "About Our Study Tracks."

Please note that our lectures and self-paced study courses can be taken at any time. However, our fully-interactive, as synchronous courses with an instructor participating and leading the course, courses are only available at certain times to accommodate the instructor's schedule. Fully-interactive courses are usually offered on a term basis in our Fall, Spring or Summer term. While you are waiting for a fully-interactive course to be scheduled, you can backfill with our lectures and self-paced study courses.

Shown below are our currently available courses and lectures for this study track along with some suggestions about their order and use in this study track.
