Adamant - Finding Truth in a Universe of Options by Lisa Bevere - DVDs & Book - Women's Group
What is truth? This has become the defining question of our time. But while everyone has an opinion, truth, it seems, is getting harder and harder to find. Perhaps that's because we are searching for something when we should be looking for someone. Truth has a name. More ancient than time and more present than this moment, truth is not a river that changes with the cultural currents, but a rock - immovable, invincible, unshakeable - and the cornerstone of all we are and ever dream to be. Theologically deep yet intimately accessible, The Adamant Companion Lessons will be an anchor for your soul in a raging sea of opinions, giving you a clear sense of direction in a wandering world.
*Includes: Six 20-minute video lessons on 2 DVDs, Questions for group discussion.

Moms Set Free - Good news for moms who are tired of trying to be good enough! - For Parents
Moms are under so much pressure; and we don't just feel the pressure to be "good enough" for our kids.
We also feel the pressure to be "good enough" for God- in and through our parenting. These impossible standards leave us stuck bouncing between worry, fear, anger, and shame, and threaten to steal all the wonder and adventure, not just from our parenting, but from our lives. Jeannie Cunnion knows how it feels to fear that we are letting down our kids and disappointing God in our parenting. And she invites us to discover how the good news of the gospel empowers us to live--and parent--as a Mom Set Free. Jeannie shows us how to:
• Lay down what God has not asked us to carry as moms so we can thrive in what He has. • Embrace our significance in our children's lives in light of God's sovereignty. • Trust God with the children He has entrusted to us. • Receive God's grace so we can reflect God's heart to our kids. • Stop trying so hard and start enjoying our children more. The good news of the gospel changes how we live and, therefore, how we parent. In coming to believe the gospel more deeply for ourselves, a radical transformation will occur in our hearts that will overflow into our homes. Get ready to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and start parenting in the freedom for which Christ has set you free!

Christianity, Cults, and Religions - by Paul Carden - Men’s & Women’s Group Sundays 6-8pm
The Christianity, Cults & Religions DVD-based study helps Christians know what they believe and why. By comparing Christianity with groups such as Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, people have a better grasp about what the Bible says about who Jesus is and the message of the Gospel. This six-session study simply explains the history, background, and beliefs of the most common world religions and cultic groups: Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Mormonism, Jehovah's Witnesses and other groups. Paul Carden, one of the most respected specialists in this field, has spent 30 years researching, writing and broadcasting on the topics of cults and new religions. He is the general editor of the best-selling cults comparison chart, Christianity, Cults & Religions. Carden presents an easy-to-understand comparison of the founder, date, location, history, beliefs, of each group. Carden also explains how to talk with people of other faiths in a way that will open them to the Gospel and not turn them off. Participants will gain a solid Scriptural foundation for their own faith so that they can answer the questions of other groups - who is Jesus? What do we believe about God? What happens after death? How do the other religion’s view salvation?
