Remember What God Has Done

We must remember the past to move ahead to the future.
Single Session Bible Study

While it's common for our culture to look to the past with either fond nostalgia or distaste, it's important for Christians to recall the past to know who we are — both as humans and as followers of Christ.

Children and Materialism

4. Children and Materialism
Learn to make deliberate choices to grow children of faith and stewardship.
4 Session Bible Study

Raising children to be grateful, content, and good stewards is no easy task. Materialism permeates our everyday life. Ironically, the Thanksgiving season tends to mark the start of the most materialistic time of year. Commercials, magazines, and the Internet blare societal values that are distinctly worldly, not godly. We may even find we have far more possessions than we actually need or use, which can conflict with the message of gratitude we hope to teach our children. This 4-session study brings back basic truths that equip us to teach the values of sacrifice, generosity, and thanksgiving

Learn what simplicity looks like and why God calls us to simple lives.
4 Session Bible Study

During the Thanksgiving season, we hope to find that we are content with our lives and grateful for all we have. Unfortunately, it doesn't take much to distract us from our gratitude. Ultimately, we know God calls us to live simple lives. This 4-session study will help you learn the way to a simple life that goes deeper than the organizational advice you may receive from popular websites and magazines.
