Resource Guide

Most of us can look at our life and identify how the relationships we have directly impact everything about our lives. They effect the decisions we make, our upbringing, how we handle hard times, and how we enjoy good times. The Bible has much to say about all sorts of relationships. Join us over the course of six weeks as we look at what the Bible can teach us about our relationship with others, ourselves, and God.

We have provided this resource guide to help you get the most out of our sermon series. We hope you can read along in your Bible with us and check out some of our suggested resources as we learn together during Relationships 101.

What to do with the Suggested Readings

We have given you five suggested readings each week. Set aside 10-15 minutes to read the suggested readings. Make sure you read slowly.  Consider reading the passage 2 or 3 times.  As you read, underline parts that stand out. Ask questions such as: What does this tell me about God? What does this tell me about myself? What is the main point in this section?  Are there instructions I should follow? Does this show me something I need to confess? Use a journal or notebook to record anything you deem to be noteworthy.

If you would like some help having a meaningful quiet time, set up an appointment with one of the pastors. We would love to help you learn to spend quality time with Jesus.
