I recently subscribed our church to an incredible online library of over 500 small group video-based studies. Each study includes not only the videos, which you stream from the Internet and show your group, but also discussion guides and participant guides for the leader and group members. This is an excellent resource that we have unlimited access to, and I would encourage any group to take advantage of it. Here are three recommended studies from this site:
This six-week video series focuses on parenting and features teaching from Matt Chandler, lead pastor of The Village Church, Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage, and Kurt and Olivia Bruner, founders of ItStartsAtHome.org. This is an excellent study for groups with parents who are raising their children to know and love the Lord. My own group is currently going through this series. No book is required (which is great for young parents who have little time to read during the week!).
This six-week video series is based on one of the best marriage books I’ve read, Sacred Marriage, by Gary Thomas. I give a copy of this book as a wedding gift to every couple I have the privilege of seeing married (whether as a guest or a participant in their ceremony).
This 12-week video series goes through the New Testament book of Philippians and features teaching from one of my favorite pastors, Matt Chandler. His teaching is powerful and challenging to new believers and seasoned saints alike. I promise you won’t be disappointed as Pastor Matt walks your group through one of the most profound books in the Bible!
