"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." So begins the Semon on the Mount, Jesus' longest sermon in the New Testament. And with these words, Jesus introduces us to a whole new way of living - Inside Out Living! The sermon on the Mount is a blueprint for building the Christian life. The Sermon cover three chapters of the book of Matthew and includes the Beatitudes, the Lord's Prayer, Jesus' teachings about worry, forgiveness, integrity, loving our enemies, storing up treasures in heaven, and many other topics. Pastor Lance Witt of Saddleback Church will engage your small group in an enriching, verse-by-verse discussion of the Beatitudes, and living as salt and light, as found in Matthew 5:1-16.

  Just Walk Across The Room
The next level in personal evangelism with this transforming 4-week experience! Hybels urges us to stay attuned to and cooperate with the promptings of the Holy Spirit by learning to "live in 3-D"---developing friendships, discovering stories, and discerning the appropriate next steps.

 

People matter to God. That foundational truth is why Bill Hybels planted a church where people can hear a clear, contemporary presentation of the gospel, relate to others who have decided to follow Jesus and respond to the life-changing good news of the gospel. In Becoming a Contagious Christian you will discover why we are called to be Contagious Christians, how authenticity, compassion and sacrifice help us relate to seekers and how to clearly share the gospel with those you love. Let Becoming a Contagious Christian revitalize your passion for evangelism and enable you to fulfill Christ's Great Commission! 
         God loves to connect with ordinary people. In Genesis He spoke not only with Abraham, the forefather of our faith, but He also spoke with Hagar, a lowly Egyptian slave. Likewise, after his resurrection Jesus appeared not only to Mary, but also to a couple of unknown disciples on a dusty road to Emmaus. In God is Closer Than You Think John Ortberg will enable you to realize God's presence in your life and enter into a more fulfilling relationship with Him. Take this opportunity to open your eyes to God's presence! 
         In What's So Amazing About Grace?, award-winning author Philip Yancey explores grace at street level. What is grace? If grace is God's love for the undeserving, then what does it look like in action? If Christians are its sole dispensers, how are we doing at lavishing grace on a world that knows far more of cruelty and unforgiveness than it does of mercy? In his most personal and provocative book ever, Yancey offers compelling, true portraits of grace's life-changing power. He searches for its presence in his own life and in the church. He challenges us to become living answers to a world that desperately wants to know What's So Amazing About Grace? 
      

The heart of Christianity is about transformation - about a God who isn't just concerned with our "spiritual lives," but who wants to impact every aspect of living. It's realizing that God meets us not in a monastery but on Main Street, and that all of ordinary, daily life has the potential to be lived as if Jesus himself were the one living it. Offering modern perspectives on the ancient path of the spiritual disciplines, The Life You've Always Wanted guides us on a journey beyond performance and externalism to a life marked by joy, peace, kindness, and all the signs of a faith that's vital and growing. Now with an added chapter on prayer, this expanded edition of the ECPA bestseller offers an encouraging and challenging approach to a Christian life that's worth living - life on the edge that fills our ordinary world with meaning, hope, change, and growing closeness with Christ. 6 Sessions including: It's "Morphing" Time, Slowing Down and Celebrating, Praying and Confessing, Meditating on Scripture and Seeking Guidance, Practicing Servanthood, Finding Freedom, Going the Distance with a Well-Ordered Heart

Most people can significantly give to the Kingdom of God, but they don’t know how or haven’t been taught the awesome eternal benefits of sowing into God’s work on Earth. Author Randy Alcorn calls it a hidden treasure, and we all must learn this life-changing principle to find that hidden treasure.

The Treasure Principle Workshop, the first study in Crown’s new “Workshop in a Box” series, teaches the joy of giving. Some Bible studies use guilt as a motivation for giving; this one doesn’t. In a dramatic teaching style, this video workshop literally inspires those who watch to learn the principles of giving in a way that causes lasting change.
