The Circle Maker - Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears  by Mark Batterson

Onni Cesta and Ronda Knox guide us through this dynamic 4-session small group Bible study using the story of Honi the Circle Maker, who prayer-walked until the rains came during a devastating first Century drought.  The study includes individual and group activities, between session personal studies, and additional background material that will enhance the experience of the video on The Circle Maker DVD.  This story helps you to identify dreams and future miracles that you can draw prayer circles around. God, who still looks for circle makers whose bold prayers defy human convention and invoke divine intervention, is waiting for those prayers...

Faithful:  Christmas through the eyes of Joseph by Adam Hamilton

During our Advent season join Karen Seifert with a text from Adam Hamilton as we examine Christmas through the eyes of Joseph and learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when our situation makes it difficult to do so. 

We’re not that different from Joseph. True, we may not be part of a story that will be remembered for all time, but like Joseph, we encounter circumstances that we’d never choose for ourselves. At times, it can be tempting just to walk away, but Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don’t understand, faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph and learn to accept and glorify God’s will even when our situation makes it difficult to do so.
