With the message series "Big Tent Christianity" we want to help you get to the edge of the tent and beyond with practical steps to help you engage those around you.  Evangelizing can be difficult.  Prayer, Care, and Share are simple tools that we can use to equip ourselves to be able to go out and evangelize to the people within our Life Circles.  This is called Relational Evangelism.  It isn't quick, but it is easy to practice.  We want to help encourage and equip you to boldly go to the edge of the tent and beyond it to reach people for Christ!

Matt Timms and Nate Rector – Why We Believe in the Bible by John Piper

Start Date 6/8/2020
Length: 10 Weeks
Target Group: Anyone
Mondays from 7:00-8:30 pm
Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

With the deluge of communication around us—books, newspapers, blogs, journals, and magazines—all insisting that their view of the world is most compelling, which should we trust? This is no small question. In fact, our answer has eternal implications.

The ten-session, Why We Believe the Bible Series and Study Guide are designed to help study groups and classes explore the claim that the Bible stands above all others as the book of books, pointing infallibly to the King of kings. Through the teaching of pastor John Piper and the five guided assignments per week, participants will study biblical texts and discuss probing questions to help them see why the Bible alone is worthy of our confidence.

Gretchen Leddy - Fear and Faith by Trillia Newbell

Start Date: 6/8/2020
Length: 5 Weeks
Target Group: Women
Monday from 7:30-9:00 PM

Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone—the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant, a bully we can't hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith.

When we're struck with fear, where do we turn? Can God really be trusted?

In five heartfelt sessions based on her book, Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how those fears impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Each session features real-life stories of women who are wrestling with fear due to tragic events, difficult circumstances, or deep anxiety about what may or may not happen. Trillia will walk through Scriptures that show God's love and strength when we are afraid and His faithfulness in times of trouble.

Whatever your fear, you will realize you are not alone, nor are you without hope. You have the One who can calm your fears, grow your faith, and give the peace your heart craves.

Dick Bickerstaff – The Gospel of Mark by Francis Chan

Start Date: 6/30/2020
Length: 8-10 Weeks
Target Group: Men
Tuesdays at 6:00 pm

The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship.

In this 11-part series on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

Carol Barrett – The Book of Ruth by Juarez-Olthoff

Start Date: 6/3/2020
Length: 7 Weeks
Target Group: Women
Wednesdays from 12:00-12:40 pm
Contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

God can seem distant when dreams fade, people die, or careers fail. It may feel like He slammed the door in your face and walked out for good. No one knows the feeling of abandonment more than Ruth and Naomi. Their story begins with the worst—death, famine, and poverty. And God remains silent.

But the book of Ruth doesn’t end with despair. The story brims with hope because God works on behalf of the two widows in ways they least expect. In this 7-part series, Bianca Juárez Olthoff, speaker and author of Play with Fire, teaches through Ruth to show how God moves behind the scenes in our lives. On the surface, this book tells the story of two widows and a kind landowner. Even more, it teaches us about God’s faithfulness, love, and providence.

Walk the journey of Ruth, Naomi, and Boaz and discover the devoted love of God and His transformative power in our lives.

Do women matter to the kingdom of God?

Jesus was surrounded by both men and women during his ministry on earth. He saw, valued, and cared for women, and he still does today. Each one of us has a significant role.

Through this six-session study, you will discover who Jesus is through the unique perspective of women in the Bible. As you study the lives of Mary, Martha, Mary Magdalene and others, you will learn from their faith and failures and be reminded that Jesus cared for and valued the women he was surrounded by. He equipped them, listened to them, walked with them, healed them, and empowered them. And he does the same for you now.

Myths about angels are everywhere. Do we become angels when we die? Are angels always hovering nearby, on guard to protect us from danger? Can we talk to them? Many of our ideas about angels come from the media, which is more interested in ratings and ticket sales than truth. It's important for Christians to understand what angels really are.

Sexual temptation is undeniably the greatest struggle Christian men face. Here's a study that digs deep and has the answers men are looking for–the kind that actually work. While other studies deal with the subject superficially, At The Altar of Sexual Idolatry goes right to the heart. It draws back the curtain and exposes how sexual sin corrupts the entire man, something Steve Gallagher understands, having lived in the bondage of it for over twelve years. Put an end to the mystery of lust and maximize God's power in your life with the proven answers that have helped thousands.

Rosemary Trivella – The Book of James by Francis Chan
Start Date 6/17/2020
Length: 12 Weeks
target Group: Anyone

True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.

Francis Chan unpacks the dense truth contained in the book of James in front of the iconic backdrop of San Francisco, the city where he lives and ministers. Through 12 sessions, Francis works through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.
