"Just Do It" groups

One way to SYNC your life with God's is to form your own "Just Do It" group of 3 or 4 people to listen to God together once a week, inviting Jesus to put a "Just Do It" in your head as you discuss a short reading from the Bible.

 

Very simple. Nobody prepares or "teaches" anything. The guide for the weekly discussion is the same every week. No charge for the materials, and no registration with SYNC required. "Just do it."

Other options for choosing a series of Bible readings

There are many other series of Bible readings available. For example, see a 28-week list of passages that cover the biblical story from creation to the day Jesus ascended to heaven. This is on the home page that promotes the "Discovery Bible Study" method. Our "Just Do It" method is one of many versions of that approach. 

 

You may also choose to go through a book of the Bible one section at a time, using about 10 verses per week. Lots of other lists of Biblical passages on particular topics are also available. Just be careful not to turn your "Just Do It" group into a typical "Bible study" group, since typical groups require a lot of preparation from a leader, they focus on understanding much more than doing, and they do not multiply themselves as Just Do It groups are designed to do.
