Calvin College Campus-wide Bible Study on James

This fall we’ll spend ten weeks together studying the book of James! This is our 5th annual all-campus bible study, and we are excited about what God does on this campus when we gather around his word. All of the lessons will be posted here when they are ready. There is NO HOMEWORK for participants. Each floor will have a study, as will many apartments, athletic teams, houses, departments, and majors.

It's bigger than Calvin

This Bible study reaches beyond our campus. Through our partnership with the off-campus programs, the James study will extend around the world, including Peru, China, and Hungary. In addition, many churches in West Michigan and others across North America will also be studying James this fall.

Available study materials

Study materials were available for all participants at a discounted rate. Materials can be purchased at the Campus Store starting in August. Materials are free for the group leaders.
