Over the years Christ’s Church has produced study material that covers a range of topics and books of the Bible. We invite you to explore our growing library and encourage you to use and share any of the material below.
Two thousand years ago, an itinerant preacher climbed to the top of a hill and hundreds of people followed him to hear what would become the most famous speech ever written. The natural acoustics carried his voice to the masses as he talked about the possibility of experiencing a life of belonging, comfort, freedom, peace, recognition and transcendence. His listeners could not only have a taste of this kind of life- they could have everything that is good. And two thousand years later, we can have it too. But the way to get there may not be what you think.
We are all weighed down by invisible burdens of various kinds, but God has designed us to enjoy liberty from all of that as we travel through this life. In Traveling Light we dive into the book of Philippians and learn how to cast aside all kinds of religious, relational and personal baggage that slow us down and make our journeys more difficult to bear.
Sufferings of various kinds, conflicts, overconfidence, money and false wisdom threaten to capsize us. How can we navigate these turbulent seas and keep afloat without making a shipwreck of our faith? James the brother of Jesus gave some ancient wisdom to a group of Christians facing challenges that were not so unlike our own. He gave them a way to navigate these challenges and he is inviting us to follow him through.
