UMC Confirmation & Membership PowerPoint CD Rom INTRO PACKET


The An Adventure in United Methodist Confirmation and Membershp PowerPoint CD Rom Intro Packet contains CD Rom with the PowerPoint Show and the Leader's Guide.  The packet also includes copies of the two Confirmation Workbooks and the two Adult Membership books.

One of the most widely used resources in United Methodism, An Adventure in United Methodist Confirmation and Membership was first published in 1976, completely rewritten and redesigned in 1998 and revised after the 2004 and 2008 General Conferences. It reflects recent General Conference rulings, current church structures, modern Biblical scholarship, and current theological thinking and language use. And, because of its flexibility and traditional catechetical style, it is used being used regularly in hundreds of United Methodist congregations.

CONFIRMATION AND ADULT MEMBERSHIP TRAINING IN ONE SET OF RESOURCES

The PowerPoint Show and Leader’s Guide for An Adventure in United Methodist Confirmation and Membership have been designed to be used with either adults or youth. Two special Confirmation Workbooks, aimed at sixth and seventh grade youth, turn the PowerPoint Show and Leader’s Guide into a highly usable confirmation teaching resource. And, the two Membership Books, aimed at adults and older youth are perfect for regular membership training of transfers and converts.

ORGANIZED FOR FLEXIBILITY

All of the resources — the PowerPoint Show, the Leader’s Guide, the two Confirmation Workbooks, and the two Adult Membership Books — have all been designed around thirteen one-hour sessions.

The FIRST HALF of the course focuses on the basic doctrines and Christian history common to virtually all Christians. It features the Doctrines of God, Christ, Salvation, the Holy Spirit, the Church, and Biblical authority plus the historical beginnings of Christianity, Paul, the early church, the medieval church and the Protestant Reformation. This first half of the study uses the My Confirmation Into the Body of Christ book (for confirmaton) and the Membership in the Body of Christ book (for adult membership) in conjunction with the first half of the PowerPoint Show and Leader's Guide.

The SECOND HALF focuses on a detailed history of the Methodist movement, specific Wesleyan theology such as the four poles of authority, Christian perfection, sanctification, and the balance between Scriptural Holiness and social confrontation. Then, all of this is capped with an introduction to the structure and polity of the national, regional, and local United Methodist Church, with a final focus on the meaning of confirmation and membership.  This second half of the study uses the My Confirmation Into The United Methodist Church book (for confirmaton) and the Membership in The United Methodist Church (U.S.A.) book (for adult membership) in conjunction with the second half of the PowerPoint Show and Leader's Guide.

Because of the way the course is structured, some pastors use the entire program while others use specific segments. Some stretch the thirteen weeks into a full half year while others build a successful six week program around the same basic set of resources.

THE POWERPOINT SHOW

The PowerPoint Show is the basic teaching resource with animated "bullet points" and colorful illustrations of each section for easy teaching and fuller understanding of the material. The 75-frame, multi-color show comes on the CD Rom in both a version (ppt) that can be edited in your own PowerPoint software or in a version (pps) that can be shown without software using the Powerpoint Viewer which is also included on the CD Rom.

THE LEADER’S GUIDE

The Leader’s Guide for An Adventure in United Methodist Confirmation and Membership (can be printed as often as necessary from the pdf files on the CD Rom) is designed to provide the leader with everything necessary to teach the course without additional resources. It is designed to be printed as a 190 8 1/2” x 11” looseleaf book for easy notebook filing and distribution of sections to additional teachers. Every PowerPoint frame is clearly illustrated in the Leader’s Guide and substantive back-up information is provided for every line of text in the PowerPoint Show. Additional helps for encouraging discussion and supplementing the basic material are provided for every section.

THE CONFIRMATION WORKBOOKS

There are two confirmation workbooks -- My Confirmation Into the Body of Christ and My Confirmation Into The United Methodist Church. Both are in 8 1/2 x 11” format with critical textual material, illustrations, photographs, and workbook exercises for virtually every section. Aimed at sixth and seventh grade youth, they are easy to understand and provide a take-home learning tool for continuity. The first book, My Confirmation Into the Body of Christ, focuses on the doctrines and Christian history common to all Christians and the second book, My Confirmation Into The United Methodist Church, focuses on the history, doctrines, and structure of Methodism with special emphasis on the meaning of confirmation and church membership.

THE MEMBERSHIP BOOKS

The adult books, Membership in The Body of Christ and Membership in The United Methodist Church follow the same divisions as the confirmand books but are aimed at adults and older youth with more text, fewer pictures, and no workbook exercises.

Availability: Usually ships the next business day.
