In response to COVID-19, the church is shifting in key ways in order to show the love of Christ to each other and those in our communities. As a precaution against spreading the virus, many churches and groups are meeting virtually instead of face to face. But gaining access to trustworthy biblical teaching and studies online can be a complicated and cumbersome task. So Lifeway is making several Bible studies available through our streaming platform, Smallgroup by Lifeway.
Free Bible study videos
For a limited time, your group can watch free teaching videos from 12 different Bible studies. The complete list is at the end of this post.
To access these videos on ROKU, APPLE TV, or AMAZON FIRE TV devices, simply search for the Smallgroup by Lifeway application and install it. You’ll find these 12 studies available for free without any login or password.
To access these videos on your Apple or Android device, just download the Smallgroup by Lifeway app from your app store and enjoy. You can even download and watch your videos offline at your convenience.
There are a few ways to use these videos with your group. Each member can watch the video on their own and then discuss the content with your group in an online platform such as Zoom, Google Hangouts, or Facebook Live. Or you can all meet together on one of these platforms, have one person share the video with the group using their laptop or other electronic device, and then discuss as a group. (Check out this article from Chris Surratt on how to host a virtual group meeting.)
Study guides for these videos
If you’d like additional Bible study content for the free videos mentioned above, including Scripture verses and discussion questions, you can start a free trial membership of smallgroup.com. This service will give you access to that Bible study content (as well as hundreds more studies with video), along with the ability to customize each study for your group’s unique needs.
However, a smallgroup.com membership is not required to access the free videos of the 12 studies, which are all available through Smallgroup by Lifeway.
