Draw Near: Hebrews on Christian Worship is a Bible study on the Book of Hebrews intended to lead participants into a deeper intimacy with the Living God in the context of New Testament worship.
This study provides both individual daily devotion and a small group study format, and it is transformative for an entire congregation when used as a church-wide study with sermon alignment around the weekly themes.
*This study aligns with the Revised Common Lectionary during Year B Fall.
Let's face it, the Christian life is hard. Relationships take work. Christians forget. Sometimes it is tempting to go back to the days when God was not the center of our lives - to backslide. We are all faced with tremendous pressures to drift away from intimacy with Jesus and the community of the Church. However, the Lord invites us to pay attention, to move forward, to draw near, and to live lives of worship.
Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Draw Near contains six sessions. Each of the 20-minute teachings be viewed on the DVD, or streamed online or through our mobile and smart TV apps. Participants can also purchase a combined study guide/devotional to facilitate small group discussions and daily at-home reflection.

"We spent a long time on Draw Near, and we came away with a deeper understanding of Hebrews than any of us had ever considered before. Our discussions were always lively and spiritually invigorating... I never understood the Epistle of Hebrews the way I do now."
