Youth Content:

YOUTH -  Connect the Dots - Discovering God's ongoing Will in Your Life

Leader Kit - Enhanced CD-(Threads by Lifeway)

"...there is great purpose in the waiting.  This leader kit will help you in leading your group to focus on how God builds into us during these times of waiting"

3:16 - The Numbers of Hope,

The Church Experience Kit    - DVD- 6 weeks of 5 days of study each

Max Lucado

“A 26-word parade of hope: beginning with God, ending with life, and urging us to do the same. Brief enough to write on a napkin or memorize in a moment, yet solid enough to weather two thousand years of storms and questions. If you know nothing of the Bible, start here. If you know everything in the Bible, return here. We all need the reminder. The heart of the human problem is the heart of the human. And God’s treatment is prescribed in John 3:16.”

     With its powerful call to revival, James MacDonald’s 12 session Bible study leads believers to lift up their eyes and return to the Lord. When we do, He will heal us…revive us…and restore us. That was the message God gave Hosea, and it’s still true today. So if your church is thirsty for spiritual renewal, there’s a downpour on the horizon. Get ready to soak it in!


The Five Love Languages - DVD- 7 week study

Gary Chapman
