FOLLOW ME: FINDING JESUS IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN is an Eight-Part Bible Study featuring Dr. Edward Sri. Following Christ takes more than simply believing in him or doing what he asks of us. Jesus wants you to be more than just a believer — He wants you to be his disciple and friend. FOLLOW ME: FINDING JESUS IN THE GOSPEL OF JOHN is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ. As the Good Shepherd, Jesus seeks after us. He comes to meet us and beckons us to follow him. He calls us to be his disciples, to trust him, to open ourselves to his merciful love, and to love others as he has loved us. Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ.

WALKING WITH PURPOSE: KEEPING IN BALANCE: Do you feel pulled in many directions? Do you find it hard to balance the demands placed on your time? Is it difficult to manage all the details thrown your way? According to Richard Swenson, M.D., we have “more and more of everything, faster and faster.” Unfortunately, this can leave us feeling frazzled and out of control. God wants to support and help us so that we can be our best in every season of our lives. KEEPING IN BALANCE will take us on a journey throughout Scripture as we discover the relevance of Old and New Testament wisdom to our daily challenges. Join us as we explore biblical ways that we can manage life’s pace and pressure while living with calm and steadiness. REGISTER FOR WALKING WITH PURPOSE
