Dear Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
In times of uncertainty and change, we all rest on the belief that we still belong to God who is with us even in moments we cannot tell. Your friends at Geneva Press want you to know we are praying for you and for a quick end to this pandemic. Meanwhile, let’s figure a way to keep Bible study happening if it’s possible!
To this end, we are happy to make the current quarter (Spring) of The Present Word available digitally. While this is and will remain a printed curriculum series, we understand that many groups continue to meet using FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or conference calls and need the resource in a digital format during this time. May your group continue to be enriched by the Word and look forward to meeting in person again. Soon!

A NOTE ON DISTRIBUTION STANDARDS DURING THIS TIME
We’re happy to grant permission for you to use curriculum materials during live online class sessions during the COVID-19 crisis. You may also digitally share pages with class participants.
If you wish to post pages on a public website for use during the class, please make them available for no longer than one month. If you wish to leave pages online for longer periods, please share them via a private section of your website, or in a private Facebook group. You may also email pages directly to class participants or make them available through a filesharing service such as Dropbox.
All we ask is that you make it clear to recipients that the pages are for class participants only. We hope this will be helpful as you look for creative ways to continue serving your church. Thanks for all you do.
