STEPPING UP BY DENNIS RAINEY

Men face decisions in life that demand courage. Big or little, complex or straightforward, these choices - let’s call them battles - matter a great deal. One courageous choice leads to another; tomorrow’s integrity depends on today’s bravery. Author, speaker, and radio host Dennis Rainey tackles the call to living, breathing manhood head-on, offering a simple yet powerful vision for what it means to be a man who truly conquers, and truly wins. He calls men to step up to courageous manhood. No childcare provided.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH



FORGOTTEN GOD BY FRANCIS CHAN

A compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives. In the name of the Father, the Son, and … the Holy Spirit. We pray in the name of all three, but how often do we live with an awareness of only the first two? As Jesus ascended into heaven, He promised to send the Holy Spirit—the Helper—so that we could be true and living witnesses for Christ. Unfortunately, today’s church has admired the gift but neglected to open it. Childcare provided.

JESUS IS_____. BY JUDAH SMITH

Everyone has an opinion of who Jesus is. Jesus is a lot of things, but the answer is in the Bible. It says that Jesus is the Son of God, who came to earth on a mission to restore mankind to God. By living a perfect life, dying on a cross, and coming back to life, His mission was a success. We can know God because of Jesus. So maybe the reality of who Jesus is remains too big for the blank.

THE GOD I NEVER KNEW BY ROBERT MORRIS

Many people find the Holy Spirit mysterious, confounding—even controversial. Why is the third person in the Godhead—the one Jesus said would be the believer’s ultimate source of truth and comfort—the source of such confusion? In The God I Never Knew, Robert Morris clearly explains that the Holy Spirit’s chief desire is for relationship--to offer us the encouragement and guidance of a trusted friend. This insightful and biblically-based book moves beyond theological jargon, religious tradition, and cultural misconceptions to clarify what the Holy Spirit promises to do in your life. Childcare provided.

PHILIPPIANS BY MATT CHANDLER

This most intimate of all Paul’s letters paints a beautiful picture of what it is to be a mature Christian. The story begins in Philippi where Paul introduces three individuals that were all enslaved by the kind of things that we often choose over the gospel: Lydia, the Business Executive, The Little Slave Girl, and The Hard Working Jailer. Their lives portray dysfunction and emptiness, but are totally transformed by the Gospel. In fact, Paul himself was enslaved and then by God’s grace and mercy he could pen these popular and profound words: “to live is Christ and to die is gain”. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Childcare provided.

ONE WAY LOVE BY TULLIAN TCHIVIDIJAN

The world doesn’t offer us rest---but God does! Transforming the perception of Christianity as a vehicle for good behavior---and the judgmental feelings that result from it---into a way for those who have failed to discover the love of Christ, Tchividjian calls for believers to abandon our play-it-safe religion and embrace the power of God’s unflinching grace. Childcare provided.

FOLLOW ME BY DAVID PLATT

You may think you are a Christian—but are you sure? Jesus’ call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life and find new life and ultimate joy in him. In David Platt’s book Follow Me: A Call to Die. A Call to Live he asks the question, “What did Jesus really mean when he said, ‘Follow me’?” What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what he is saying? When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow him, everything changes, for he is worthy of all our trust and affections. Childcare provided.
