  • PARENTING

    14 Gospel Principles That Can Radically Change Your Family by Paul David Tripp


    Parents often feel unqualified for the job at hand. The good news is God doesn't call people to be parents because they are able but because He is able. If you read your Bible carefully, you will understand that God doesn't call able people to do important things. Abraham, Moses, David, the disciples - none of them were able. God's plan is to make his invisible grace visible to children by sending parents of grace to give grace to children who need it.

  • CHosen by god

    by R.C. Sproul

    We choose God because he has opened our eyes to see his beauty; we love him because he first loved us. There is mystery in God's ways, but not contradiction. Tackling the subject of predestination, Sproul argues that it paints a portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans, rather than that of a whimsical or spiteful Lord. Point by point, he examines Scripture and discusses God's sovereignty, the problem of evil, human freedom, and the task of evangelism.

  • Contentment  (Ladies only)

    by Melissa Kruger


    The Apostle Paul was content in plenty and in want. So why do many Christians still struggle with comparison, covetousness, and complaining? What was Paul's secret, and how do we cultivate contentment in our lives? This study will explore what it really means to be content: to place our trust in our good and sovereign God. God's love for His people is unchanging, and He is using every detail of our lives to shape and fashion us into the image of Jesus Christ. As we look back to the cross of Christ and look forward to the hope of heaven, we will discover that ultimate contentment is found in Him.

  • UNLEASHED   (Men Only)

    Being Conformed to the Image of Christ by Eric Mason 


    God's will is not just for us to be born again but for us to grow into spiritual adults. God intends all of the Christian life to be a process of growth in Christlikeness. First Thessalonians 4:3 says, "This is the will of God, your sanctification." Paul also instructs, "Those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers." In light of these rich realities, believers must clearly understand how we can intentionally cooperate with the Holy Spirit’s work to grow us into the likeness of Jesus.
