Ordering Tutorial

We have recently made changes to the order placement procedure on our website. We hope that things are now more intuitive, but if you are having difficulties please read through the tutorial before sending us a question.

Account Creation

Creating an account allows you to receive email confirmations for placed orders, view the status of past orders, and more.

If you choose, you may skip account creation and instead place an order as a guest. You will still receive email updates about your order status, but you cannot view past orders.

To create an account, tap the person icon in the bottom menu bar, (or tap this link).

When the page loads, tap the Sign Up link.

This will prompt you for your email address. Enter it in the provided field, then tap the "Sign Up" button to continue your account creation. Read more about how Berachah Church accounts work here.

Using the Catalog

The Catalog page shows all available discs and USBs. Use the interactive tables to locate specific media items and add them to your order. Each row contains information about a media item: the series name, media number, lesson number(s), and date(s). You can add the item to your order by tapping the “+” button on the bottom right of each row.

Viewing a Series

Towards the top left of the page, you will see a button labeled "Filter". Tap this to open the series filter select box. To display only the items that belong to a particular series, tap on the title of that series. To reset the filter and return to the full listing, choose the "--None--" option.

Audio or Video

There are two main sections to the Catalog page: Audio and Video. Audio is shown first; scroll down to view the video section. The table listed under "Audio" media allows you to order MP3 discs or USB Audio drives; these media contain audio-only recordings of Bible classes. To switch between MP3 and USB, locate the tabs above the table and tap your desired format.

Tables under "Video Media" contain video recordings of Bible classes on DVD and USB Video, and can be toggled between in the same manner.

Adding an Item to Your Order

When you have found the item you would like to order, tap the “Add to Order” button in the last row of the card. This will add that item to your order bag. For more information on how to interact with the items in your bag, skip to this section.

Using the Subject Index

The Subject Index is an interactive table with significantly more detail than the basic Catalog. This tool can be used to search for doctrinal topics of interest and view short summaries of each lesson. The Subject Index also includes searchable dates, scriptural references, and lesson numbers. When you have found the topic or lesson you are searching for, you can add the media item containing that lesson to your order with just a few taps. Additionally, if the lesson you have selected is available for online streaming, you can listen to or view it through the "Watch Now" link.

Searching the Index

Enter any doctrinal word or term in the search box; this will return a list of lessons containing that descriptor. Note that the search tool is not case sensitive, nor are search results limited to whole word matches.

If you wish to enter multiple terms at once, separate each descriptor with a space (e.g., "abide salvation"). The search box will return only the results that contain all of the terms you have entered.

Additionally, you may search for a specific lesson date or Scripture. Dates are formatted YYYY-MM-DD, and books of the Bible are typically abbreviated (e.g., John becomes "Jn", Romans becomes "Rom.", etc.).

Adding an Item to Your Order

To add a media item to your order, tap on the card containing the subject you wish to order. This will open a dialog box with options for MP3, DVD, USB Audio and USB Video (note: if the lesson covering the subject you have selected is available for streaming, there will be an option to view the audio and video directly).

Important: When selecting a single subject from the Subject Index, keep in mind the media format and limits. Since all discs and USBs are pre-made with a set range of lessons, the single subject/lesson you select from the Subject Index will arrive with many other lessons. The exact range of lessons is shown in the dialog box under each media option.

MP3 discs typically contain 40 to 50 lessons each, and the limit is 2 discs per order. USB Audio drives contain 80 to 90 lessons (limit 1 drive). USB Video drives contain around 16 lessons (limit 1 drive). DVDs contain 4 or fewer lessons (limit 4 discs), offering the most narrow focus on the topic for which you have searched.
