Suggested Scriptures for Be The Church by Kalinowsky and McBee

Be The Church by Ceasar Kalinowski and Seth McBee is a pretty helpful study.  You get a napkin scribble, a little dialogue driven story line, and some open ended questions.   It’s very simple and can spin out some helpful conversation.  However, none of the lessons are tied directly to scriptures.  Here are a few suggestions scriptures.   Blessings.
