A Course In
by Richard L. Floyd

Are you looking for a program that will help adults gain a better understanding of the basics of the Christian faith and a deeper appreciation for the power of God in their lives?

A Course in Basic Christianity is an eight-week (one day per week) course developed and used successfully in local churches.

It is a refresher course for adults for whom it has been a long time since Confirmation or membership class. It is equally helpful for a new member or a long-standing one.

Here is what some pastors say about it:

“An excellent course for a group study, easy to follow and to lead. With well-selected readings from the great thinkers of Christian history, you will leave wanting to learn more about theology and the story of the church. Intellectually rigorous without being off-putting, this course is perfect for the thinking Christian who has forgotten, or perhaps never had, confirmation class.” Lillian Daniel, Senior Minister, First Congregational Church of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, and co-author (with Martin Copenhaver) of the newly published This Odd and Wondrous Calling.

“I have held the Course in Basic Christianity 6 times and always with tremendous response from a fully enrolled class of adults.” Steven A. Small, Senior Pastor, West Boylston Congregational Church, Massachusetts.

“I like Pastor Rick Floyd's A Course in Basic Christianity.” Anthony Robinson in his What's Theology Got to Do with it?

✤ How do we know God?
✤ How do we interpret the Bible?
✤ What do we know about the creeds and doctrines of the church today?
✤ How do we pray?
✤ What is worship?
✤ What do Baptism and the Lord’s Supper mean?
✤ What do the Ten Commandments have to tell us about our lives?

  1. Hello Rick - I'm very interested in running your course in my church. I live in the UK so is it possible for you to get the material to me.
    Many thanks
