At-home Faith Formation Tip: 

“The most powerful choices we will make in our lives are not about specific decisions but about patterns of life: the nudges and disciplines that will shape all our other choices. This is especially true with technology” from The Tech-Wise Family by Andy Crouch (Baker Books).

GRACE OF GOD AND FLAWS OF MEN

ANAND MAHADEVAN

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob stand towering among Old Testament leaders. They have always been celebrated for their faith, obedience, and accomplishments. But to only see their success without also seeing their flaws would alter the central message of the Bible—humans are sinners, and it is the grace of God that saves and transforms them through Christ Jesus. In this Bible study based on his book, Anand Mahadevan takes a fresh, true perspective on the lives of these three heroes and their many failures that will leave you captivated by the beauty, patience, and transforming power of God’s grace.

NOT ALONE: A STUDY ON FRIENDSHIP

JENNIE ALLEN

In the beginning, God created one human. And in God’s sin-free, beautiful world, something wasn’t right. That the human was alone. The creation of Eve isn’t just the story of marriage. It’s also the beginning of community. God exists in trinity and we were made in his image.

We were created for community. And because our Father is generous, he’s given us one of the most essential and life-changing relationships for community: friendship.

In this six-week study Not Alone, join Jennie Allen, Lauren Chandler, and Amena Brown as they talk all about friendship. Find out why we need friendship, discover biblical examples of friendship, and identify the pitfalls, challenges, and joys of friendship. They’ll dive into the tough topics of toxic relationships, boundaries, and how to rebuild broken trust. But most of all, the teachers, real-life stories, and study guides will help you celebrate the encouragement, wisdom, and love that only comes when you’re not alone.

ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING

MAX LUCADO

In this five-session video Bible study, Max Lucado explores God’s promise in Philippians 4:4–8 and shows that while anxiety is part of life, it doesn’t have to dominate life. As you follow God’s prescription for worry – celebrate his goodness, ask for help, leave your concerns with him, meditate on good things – you will experience his peace. You can stop letting anxiety rule your day and find true calm and contentment in Christ.
