HABITS by Chris Shepperd
3 weeks - videos are 9-15 minutes
We all have habits right? Some are good. Some are bad. But we all have different behaviors that are a natural part of our life. Aristotle said “We are what we repeatedly do.”
For 3 weeks we will go on a journey toward becoming an iceberg. Sure, the top of an iceberg is beautiful. It is really something to look at. It might even attract attention. People stop and take pictures. They make movies about them. But it isn’t just what people see above the surface that makes an iceberg so important. What makes an iceberg so formidable is the substance UNDER the surface, the stuff you can’t see. This is the most important thing about you. Your faith.
COMMITTED by Chris Shepperd
3 weeks - videos are 9-15 minutes
We all want loyalty, acceptance, grace. We just aren’t always willing to do what it takes to get there. What it takes to get there is commitment. Even though we all struggle with commitment from time to time, commitment is worth the effort. Commitment is a good thing.
The goal of this study is to get you thinking differently about commitment or perhaps even taking a step towards commitment in some area of your life. That would be a huge win.
Killin’ It by Andy Stanley
3 weeks - videos are 18-23 minutes
There’s something that rises up in each of us. It keeps us from apologizing, admitting we’re wrong, or showing weakness. It keeps us from forgiving. It causes us to lie about our pasts, to cheat instead of lose, and to feel happy when someone else fails. It stands in the way not only of our relationships with other people, but our relationship with God.
Pride. It shuts us in and shuts God and others out. It keeps us from saying what needs to be said and hearing what needs to be heard. In this 3-part study, Andy Stanley teaches us how to kill it!
BREATHING ROOM by Sandra Stanley
4 weeks - videos are 9-14 minutes
Do you ever feel like you don’t enjoy anything because you’re trying to do everything?
You’re filling your calendar, draining your bank account, and multitasking your way through life. You’re efficient . . . but exhausted. You just need a little bit of breathing room. With one surprisingly simple invitation, God offers a way to trade your overwhelming pace for one that will finally bring you peace.
THIS IS THE DAY by Tim Tebow
4 weeks - videos are 8-10 minutes
Have you ever felt stuck?
Sometimes life feels rigid—as if nothing could ever really change. Maybe we’re afraid of taking a step of faith. Or maybe we’re too injured from the past to move forward. Or maybe life threw us a curveball and we still don’t know how to react.
No matter where you find yourself, you can make the most of today. In this inspirational series, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow shares stories from his life to illustrate what it means to seize each day for God’s glory. He challenges us to step out in courage because this is the day to act.
WHISPER by Mark Batterson
4 weeks - videos are 10-12 minutes
Many people have a tough time believing that God still speaks. We’ve learned from Scripture that God spoke to His people in ancient times and in mysterious ways, but how do we hear His voice now? The truth is God still communicates with His people, but He often speaks in a whisper—not to make it difficult to hear Him, but to draw us close.
In this 4-session series, Mark Batterson teaches what it means for Christians to discern the voice of God in their lives. He will introduce the seven love languages of God—each of them unique and entirely divine. By learning to tune in and decipher each language, Mark equips believers to hear God’s guidance and grow closer to Him.

A CONTRARIAN’S GUIDE TO KNOWING GOD by Larry Osborne
5 weeks - videos are 8-10 minutes
The Christian life—even one centered on grace—can still feel like a long list of dos and don’ts. But what if there’s more (and less) to our faith than we typically believe? In this series pastor Larry Osborne tackles popular assumptions about Christian living that create stress and failure rather than growth and joy.
THE BOOK OF GALATIANS by Kyle Idleman
6 weeks - videos are 11-12 minutes
If someone asked you to explain the gospel, what would you say? What is the good news of the Christian faith? Writing to the Galatians, Paul made it clear how easily we can be tempted to turn toward fraudulent gospels, especially those that teach we can earn God’s love through our works. Though they may have the appearance of truth, they are lifeless and leave us empty in the end.
In this Book of the Bible series, Kyle Idleman dives into the book of Galatians, one that contains some of the clearest explanations of the gospel in the New Testament. Through biblical study and engaging lessons, Kyle shows that true freedom is found in surrender, not self-dependence. Because our gospel is not one based on our works, but faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
PSALM 23 by Matt Chandler
6 weeks - videos are 7-13 minutes
Many people are familiar with Psalm 23. But because we all know it, we often breeze through the psalm without slowing down long enough to rest in the assurance it offers. In this 6-part series on Psalm 23, pastor Matt Chandler introduces us to the great shepherd, the Lord, who promises to provide for every need of his flock.
Though only six verses long, this psalm teaches us profound truths about our loving and protective God. By studying Psalm 23, we’ll encounter a life-transforming question: Do you trust the Lord to care for your needs?
WELCOME TO ADULTING by Jonathan Pokluda
6 weeks - videos are 14-19 minutes
After strenuous studies, you walk across the stage, gripping your diploma—you’ve arrived. Adult at last. But all of a sudden, instead of a diploma you hold a paycheck in one hand and a stack of bills in the other. You find yourself swimming in the treacherous seas of adulthood surrounded by 401ks, insurance, bosses, potential spouses, and everything in between. How can you begin to navigate your 20s and 30s, and still honor God in the process?
Jonathan Pokluda is a Teaching Pastor at Watermark Church and a speaker at The Porch, a gathering of young adults in Dallas, Texas. In this 6-part series, Jonathan speaks to young adults on the art of “adulting” for Christ. He’ll walk through how to discern God’s will for your life right now and specify how you can best glorify Him through your career, relationships, and commitments.
FORGOTTEN GOD by Francis Chan
7 weeks - videos are 5-12 minutes
In this dynamic companion to the book Forgotten God, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of the true source of the church’s power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results.
HOPE by Grace Community Church
7 weeks - videos are 6-15 minutes
This six-week series created at Grace Community Church in Arlington, TX explores the biblical view of hope as a confident expectation that God will come through for us both in this life and the next.
THE BOOK OF COLOSSIANS by Louie Giglio
8 weeks - videos are 15 minutes or less
What we think about Jesus matters. Our perception of Him shapes us—what we say, how we treat others, even what we think. If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers.
In this 8-session series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. What we believe about Him influences everything from our corporate worship to our relationships to our attitude toward sin. Now alive in Christ, we can live a life worthy of God instead of falling back into the ways of the world.
JONAH by Eric Mason
8 weeks - videos are 6-9 mins
At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. Few figures illustrate that truth better than Jonah. Focused on the prophet rather than his prophecy, the story of Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. Instead of showing mercy to his enemies, he determined to keep God’s grace to himself rather than share it with those he considered undeserving. Can you relate?
Over the course of 8 verse-by-verse sessions, pastor and author Eric Mason expands our vision to see that Jonah’s story is our own. Far more than a thrilling Sunday school adventure, it offers a profound glimpse into the conflict that occurs when God calls resistant believers to His mission. More importantly, it underscores the depths of His compassion not only in redeeming the lost, but redeeming those He has called to participate in His reconciling work.
1 CORINTHIANS by Jennie Allen
12 weeks - videos are 5-12 mins
Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself. We have to choose one or the other—we can’t do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way. Paul wrote the letter of 1 Corinthians to a divided and self-centered people to remind them to follow Jesus and only Jesus.
In this 12-part series, author and speaker Jennie Allen walks into the messy lives of the Corinthians and takes us through Paul’s words to the conflicted church. We’ll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.
