Fellowship. The word gets used a lot in church. But too often our understanding and practice of fellowship are shallow and stripped of the life-giving, life-transforming power God intended community to have. Jesus lived out and taught a deeper, more radical kind of fellowship—a way of interacting that makes others sit up and take notice. These six sessions will show you Jesus’ way of loving others “as I have loved you.”Experiencing Christ Together helps your group explore the five biblical purposes that make up a high-impact Christian life —fellowship, discipleship, ministry, evangelism, and worship. Jesus perfectly lived out God’s purposes for his life, and he taught his followers how to do the same. As you walk in the footsteps of those first disciples listening to and watching Jesus through these studies, you and your group will be transformed. One small group leader put it this way: “The Experiencing Christ Together series has motivated me more than any other Bible study that I have ever been to. This Bible study gets to the heart of the matter—my character in Christ—and that has created action on my part.”

A revolution is going on in small group ministry. Small groups want to go to the next level of learning together. This curriculum is a way to integrate the best of biblical teaching from leading teachers such as John Ortberg, Max Lucado, Doug Fields, Erwin McManus, Henry Cloud, Chip Ingram, and others via video with the best of small group study guides written by Brett and Dee Eastman, Todd and Denise Wendorff and Karen Lee-Thorpe from Saddleback Church. In Saddleback small groups, the video component is hugely popular. Groups that have used curriculum with video teaching resist going back to print-only curriculum. Therefore, Brett Eastman has designed a DVD video component to the Doing Life Together small group series.There are thirty-six sessions in the six-book curriculum written by Brett Eastman and others. Each book has six sessions and the titles of each book in the series are (the Doing Life Together small group series titles are also sold as a separate product): Ø Beginning Life Together Ø Connecting with God’s Family Ø Growing to Be Like Christ Ø Developing Your SHAPE to Serve Others Ø Sharing Your Life Mission Every Day Ø Surrendering Your Life for God’s PleasureFor each session, the DVD video segment includes the following elements: A Leadership Lifter (5 minutes), in which a teacher briefs the leader on the key issues of leading this particular session. In particular the leader will learn how to lead the session’s experiential exercise. These exercises make this series a cut above most small group discussion guides. They are much easier to lead when one has seen how to do them. A Drama (3 minutes) that provokes thought and emotion (humor, recognition) about the session’s theme. Drama catches people’s attention and sparks discussion. OR A Personal Testimony (3 minutes). Some topics are easier to discuss more forthrightly when someone on video has “gone first” in the sharing. Group members are also more convinced about the validity of a concept when they see that it has made a difference in the life of someone like them. Teaching (15 minutes) about the session’s core Bible passage and theme. Teaching takes the burden of correct interpretation off the leader, so less experienced leaders can be confident that their groups are biblically sound. Worship Music. Maranatha! Music will provide several praise and worship choruses with visual images and lyrics that will inspire a small group to sing along and worship together. The kit includes six study guides, six double-disc DVDs, and six leader’s inserts (not sold separately). The leader’s inserts help the leader integrate the video teaching for each

Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives. Anne Graham Lotz has found that while prayer does work, sometimes the “pray-ers” don’t. So she has turned to the prophet Daniel for help. The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon. Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works. This book will help you pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.

Experience the Lifelong Pleasures of Knowing God! Satisfaction…Happiness…Joy. According to John Piper, the pursuit of pleasure in God is not only permissible, it’s essential. Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him. Constantly drawing on Scripture to build his case, Piper shows why pursuing maximum joy is essential to glorifying God. He discusses the implications of this for conversion, worship, love, Scripture, prayer, money, marriage, missions, and suffering. Piper beckons us to approach God with the hedonist’s abandon. Finally, we are freed to enjoy Jesus—not only as our Lord and Savior, but also as our all-surpassing, soul-satisfying Treasure. Desiring God may turn your Christian world upside down. And that will be a good thing, for the glory of God, and for your deepest joy. Includes a study guide for individual and small group use.
