A Study on FriendshipRead Reviews
In the beginning, God created a human. And in God's sin-free, beautiful world, only one thing was declared not good; that the human was alone. This isn't just the story of marriage; it's the story of humanity. We're made in the image of our God who exists in Trinity--God exists in divine community.

In the midst of the busy season of Christmas—parties, gifts, family, friends, traveling, shopping—we want to invite you to have an encounter with Jesus. To experience Jesus as Emmanuel—who is with us, with you. The God of the universe so near that He is with you at all times. Through this 4-week study, we pray that you will experience Jesus, that you will have an encounter with Him, that you will experience the beautiful, life changing meaning of Emmanuel—God with you.

The good news is that God has given us very simple tools that will help us experience His presence in the ordinary everyday moments of our lives. In our time, these moments are unpublished, quiet, and hidden from the view of our followers, family, and friends. These are the tried-and-true tools used by the church for thousands of years to draw near to God and experience the full, abundant life He calls us to.

The Art of Making Disciples

To help you get started, we present Jesus' call to discipleship and a basic cycle of what discipleship looks like.
