BIBLE STUDY TOOLS

One of the key components to being “renewed in the spirit of your mind” (Ephesians 4:23) is our exposure to and embrace of God’s word. Here are our recent picks for helpful Bible study resources:

Redeeming Productivity offers 9 free Bible reading plans, including an option for you to create your own.

Here’s a reading plan that guides you through 110 of the Bible’s major stories, including encouragement for kids and parents to memorize, learn, prayerfully apply and share what is learned.

May we join the Psalmist in declaring, “They (God’s words) are more desirable than gold, yes, than much fine gold; sweeter also than honey and the drippings of the honeycomb.” (Psalm 19:10)

EVANGELISM WORKSHOP: BRETT RICLEY

Everyone knows we should share the gospel with those who are far from God. But how do we actually reach our relational network with the gospel? What steps do we need to take along the way in order to share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ? 

We hosted Brett Ricley (DisplayTheGospel.com) for a workshop specifically designed to answer these questions and more. Brett presented simple and practical methods for sharing your story, sharing the gospel, and approaching your relational network with intentionality and grace. This training workshop was designed to help equip new followers of Jesus as well as seasoned saints with tangible ways to impact your community right where God has already placed you.

If you missed our training workshop, you can listen to the audio here. The very end of the recording is missing (mostly Q&A) due to a mic battery failing, but you can also view the outline and materials Brett handed out here.
