Regardless of the time period, the style, and the purpose of each book in God's Word, He has spoken clearly and consistaently - and His words still speak.

Where can we find meaning and purpose in life? Paul teaches us about a life worth living - and a death worth dying. He shows us the path to living this life by pointing us to Jesus, who provides the power and the example we need. The Christian life isn't an easy life, but it's a full and joyful life. Jesus never promised us that life would be easy, but He did promise He would always be with us. And since He is with us, we have everyhing we need for joy and peace. We don't just live; we thrive!

“The Watering Hole” Couples Class - Teacher: Pastor Gavin Pratt

Isaiah 58:11: And the LORD will guide you continually and satisfy your desire in scorched places

and make your bones strong; and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water,

whose waters do not fail.

Study Series: Is Hollywood Discipling You?

•Study One – Engaging the Culture

How should Christians respond to a culture that contradicts biblical teaching?

•Study Two – Christians at the Movies

A Christian look at the modern art of film.

•Study Three – The Television Dilemma

With hundreds of channels screaming for our attention, how do we decide what—or whether—to watch?

•Study Four – Finding God in Sci-Fi Spirituality

Hold onto the redemptive myth of God.

•Study Five – Hollywood Disciples

Even when they're writing fiction, these Hollywood insiders bring the truth to bear.

•Study Six – Filming the Faith

Can we trust Hollywood with the cross of our Lord?

Every day we're surrounded by messages from Hollywood. From the characters' lifestyles on TV shows to the moral standards communicated through movies to the supposedly real-life accounts of reality TV, we're constantly being told what life is all about—and it's not always a very Christian message.

This resource will help you determine if Hollywood is discipling you. You'll gain principles on how to have a healthy, God-honoring relationship to TV, movies, and more. Take your small group through six sessions and discuss how to engage culture, movies, TV, sci-fi, and even Christian films.
