The Community

Formerly Cru.Comm, The Community is a small-group Bible study curriculum designed with a logical progression. In the course of three to four years, it can ground new Christians in the basics of the faith and grow them into Christ-centered laborers.

Each of the over 100 studies in The Community presents classic, transferable Cru teaching through a distinctively redemptive lens in a way that is easy to use in a dynamic, interactive small group. Each study is designed to first teach the leader the passage and then provide the questions to lead the group through a process of self-discovered learning.

Below is the complete content of The Community, each study and article free to download. You’ll find the content arranged by level, from basic to the more advanced. Studies are titled with their name, topic and passage, and some are associated with a linked article.
