The Christian Atheist Group Bible Study by Craig Groeschel.

In The Christian Atheist Group Bible Study, Craig Groeschel of Lifechurch.tv leads you on a personal journey toward an authenic, God-honoring life.

Become more than just “Christian in name” through this eye-opening look into the ways you can surrender to God completely, living every day depending upon the Holy Spirit.

The core problem for a Christian Atheist isn’t belief; it’s intimacy. The Christian Atheist doesn’t know God very well. Knowing God requires more of us than simply believing God exists. Knowing God requires loving obedience, an obedience that comes from the heart.

Session titles:
1. When You Believe in God but Don’t Really Know Him
2. When You Believe in God but Don’t Think He’s Fair
3. When You Believe in God but Aren’t Sure He Loves You
4. When You Believe in God but Trust More in Money
5. When You Believe in God but Pursue Happiness At Any Cost
6. When You Believe in God but Don’t Want to Go Overboard

From This Day Forward a DVD Study by Craig and Amy Groeschel

Discover a richer, deeper, more authentic relationship and a more rewarding and passionate love life

Everyone dreams of a fairy-tale marriage – the perfect spouse, the perfect home, the perfect family. But reality tells us that these expectations don’t hold up very long. Many studies indicate that close to fifty-percent of marriages don’t make it. With those odds, is it even possible to have a good marriage – let alone a great one? New York Times bestselling author and pastor Craig Groeschel insists you can … but not if you approach it like everyone else does.

In this video-based small group study, Craig and his wife, Amy, show engaged and married couples how to conquer the odds in a culture where “I do” doesn’t necessarily mean forever, so they can find the joy, passion, and strength of a marriage built by God. In five sessions, they present the five commitments all spouses need to make in order to absolutely fail-proof their marriage. Starting right now … from this day forward.

Session Titles:
1. Seek God
2. Fight Fair
3. Have Fun
4. Stay Pure
5. Never Give Up

#Struggles Small Group Bible Study by Craig Groeschel

Stand Apart in a Selfie-Centered World

We all love the benefits of technology. But even with the upsides, many of us suspect there are negative consequences beyond our control. The more we interact online, the more we crave face-to-face intimacy. The more we compare ourselves with others, the less satisfied we are. The more filtered our lives become, the more challenging it is to be authentic.

In this small-group video-based study, pastor and bestselling author Craig Groeschel shows how we can stay engaged with social media while still keeping our eyes focused on Jesus. In five sessions, he reveals how we can rediscover our understanding of the biblical principles life with Christ brings—contentment, intimacy, authenticity, compassion, and rest—and put God first in our social-media saturated world.

The five sessions are:
1. Recovering Contentment
2. Restoring Intimacy
3. Revealing Authenticity
4. Resurrecting Compassion
5. Replenishing Rest

Altar Ego Small Group Bible Study by Craig Groeschel.

Who Are You?

You are not who others think you are. You are not even who you think you are. Take your idea of your own identity; lay it down on the altar and sacrifice it.

Why? Because you are who God says you are. Because until you’ve sacrificed your broken concept of your identity, you won’t become who you are meant to be.

When we place our false labels and self-deception on the altar of God’s truth, we discover who we really are. Then, instead of an outward driven, approval-based ego, we learn to live with an “altar” ego, God’s vision of who we are to become.

The study guide, designed for use with the Altar Ego video-based study (each sold separately), offers discussion questions and other supplemental material to delve further into God’s divine plan, and will ultimately help you sacrifice any old, unhealthy, untrue, and unbiblical thoughts about yourself and introduce you to your altar-ego—who you are in Christ.

Session titles:
1. Overcoming the Labels that Bind You
2. You Are God’s Masterpiece
3. Trading the Immediate for the Ultimate
4. Living with Integrity
5. Developing Spiritual Boldness
