We believe that a strong Christ-centered marriage is a picture, a model, of Christ and the church. As Christ loves us enough to have given His life for us, so we too, learn to love our spouses enough to die to self, to put another’s needs and wants before our own. Strong marriages are a picture of the self sacrificing love of Christ for us. Check out the resources below to help your group grow in their marriages.
We might not have had a great earthly example of what being a good parent looks like. Thankfully, God is willing to give us the wisdom and discernment that we need to be great parents.

Check out the below resources to help your group grow in their parenting skills.
God created men to be adventurous, risk takers, lead with integrity, and grit. Being a godly man in this world can be challenging.

Men also need friendship and accountability to be all that God created us to be. The resources below will help your men’s group grow and mature in their faith while they discuss what’s happening in their lives.
We want to give you resources to help you become the faithful women of God that He has designed you to be. No matter what roles we have here on earth, when we love like Christ and live out our faith, putting Him first in everything we do, we will do everything better. We will be better friends, wives, mothers, employers, employees, coworkers. When our mission is to live for Christ, we naturally become more like Christ.

The Old Testament is a collection of exciting history, beautiful poetry, applicable wisdom, mind-bending prophecy, and so much more. The 39 books of the Old Testament tell us the story of God’s love for His creation, mankind's rebellion, and what lengths He took to redeem the fallen world back to Himself. The below resources will aid your group’s understanding and study of the Old Testament.
The New Testament shows us how God’s redemptive plan that began in the Old Testament culminated in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The New Testament itself is broken up into the Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Pauline epistles (letters), the general epistles, and ends with the Book of Revelation. Through studying the New Testament we learn about the birth of the Church, the sending of the Holy Spirit, and the instructions on how to love each other and live as Christ followers. We also learn how to cultivate the fruits of the Spirit in our lives, so the rest of the world can see Jesus living in us. Check out the resources below to help your group dive deeper into the New Testament.
