Being Countercultural Restoring Our Identity in a Changing Society

Everyone seems to be talking about how we can make the church “relevant.” But should cultural relevance really comprise the center point of our collective identity? In a fallen world, it seems the people of God are most effective when we they can live counterculturally by practicing discernment, showing grace, valuing responsibility and promoting the restoration of all things. In this study, your group will explore how Christians can fully participate in culture while living lives that sharply contrast our world’s fallen nature.









C2: Giving Movies a Second Look (Presented by Michael W. Smith)

These movies are a fresh, innovative small group study on DVD for movie lovers. They’re designed to help individuals develop critical thinking skills and apply them to what they watch.

In Relapse, a grieving mother struggles to cope with the death of her only child. Feelings of guilt and heartbreak cause her to find comfort in a temporary “fix” made possible by biotechnology. Like an addict, she keeps going back for one more day of escape from her emotional pain … until the innocent words of a child help her see what she’s really doing.

In Love at First Sight, two teenage video store clerks argue about the possibility of love at first sight when the year’s biggest romantic drama hits the shelves. Jessica loves the movie; Dane thinks it is ridiculous. Jessica issues a challenge, he accepts, and their friendly competition leads to an eye-opening surprise.

Epic (John Eldredge)

Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (Henry & Richard Blackaby, Claude King) (Publisher’s description)


Everything Must Change (Brian McLaren)

The impact of our society and the demands upon the religious community call for a thoughtful response from followers of Christ. If believers don’t change, all is lost.

This 8-week DVD study, based on Everything Must Change (978-0-8499-0183-6), shows how the message of Jesus provides a framing story that brings healing and sanity to the dominant societal and global realities of our time: systemic injustice, poverty, and dysfunction.

Intended to be used with the trade book, this DVD study will help participants discover a “form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God’s grace at work.”


For Women Only (Shaunti Feldhan)

For Women Only is for every woman who wants to support her man in becoming all that God intends him to be.

With its focus very specifically on men, this study can lead to change in heart attitudes for any woman who participates.

Practical tips growing out of biblical principles—combined with the author’s insights and timely interviews with men themselves—will help women put their new insights into practice day-by-day. Grounded in biblical hope, For Women Only is for all women—whether single, dating, or married or simply relating to male coworkers in the workplace or siblings or dad at home. It is an ideal outreach to women who do not have any connection to a local church, but have a desire to strengthen their marriage or relationships.


God is Closer than You Think (John Ortberg)

What Are You Waiting For? Intimacy with God can happen right now if you want it. A closeness you can feel, a goodness you can taste, a reality you can experience for yourself. That’s what the Bible promises, so why settle for less? God is closer than you think, and connecting with him isn’t for monks and ascetics. It’s for business people, high school students, busy moms, single men, single women … and most important, it’s for YOU. God Is Closer Than You Think shows how you can enjoy a vibrant, moment-by-moment relationship with your heavenly Father. Bestselling author John Ortberg reveals the face of God waiting to be discovered in the complex mosaic of your life. He shows you God’s hand stretching toward you. And, with his gift for storytelling, Ortberg illustrates the ways you can reach toward God and complete the connection—to your joy and his.

Justice for the Poor (Jim Wallis and Sojourners)

When the wealthy are dying from diseases of overabundance and the poor are dying from inadequate health care, poor diets, and stress-related illnesses, there is spiritual disease in society. Justice for the Poor recaptures the biblical vision that links poverty with justice. Jesus’ life and teaching shows a deep compassion toward the poor and marginalized. His messages often highlight the injustices done to the poor and the prejudices the well-off have against them. How can we learn from the poor? What is our responsibility to care for the poor and to advocate for justice on their behalf?









The Kingdom Way of Life Restoring what it means to Follow Jesus

The word “kingdom” is casually used by many people today but it’s hard to decipher what it really means. How can Christians uncover what the Kingdom is, and how can we live in pursuit of it here on earth?

Life Rollercoaster: Surviving the Twists, Turns, and Drops

College students can have knowledge in some areas, confidence in others, and experience elsewhere…but at the end of the day, many still harbor anxiety about co-existence. It’s ‘feeling a part’ vs. ‘feeling apart.’ Every installment of Highway Visual Curriculum will have a theme. A subtle thread will tie the segments together, treating important themes like self-esteem, grace, discouragement, encouragement, grief, guilt, and forgiveness. Taken together, the segments will present thoughtful — and thought-provoking — video statements from many sides in many modes.

Love is an Orientation: Practical Ways to Build Bridges (Andrew Marin)

Much of today’s culture defines bridge-building and reconciliation as a one-way street that leads to full theological, political and social agreement. Yet Christ demonstrated a different path of religious and cultural engagement to establish his kingdom here on earth. In light of such countercultural principles, the Christian community needs a new view on the issues that divide conservative believers and the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. Using the practical applications Andrew Marin has learned over the last decade of living and working in the LGBT neighborhood of Chicago called Boystown, as well as his international speaking and consulting ministry, this six-session, video-based study offers a variety of practical teachings, insights and life lessons. Rather than avoiding the topic of homosexuality, Love Is an Orientation aims to equip the Christian community to bridge the gap between LGBT and religious communities. This is not a group study about ‘fixing’ gay people. It’s about getting to know them, engaging them, and loving them like Jesus does. After this study, you, your small group and your church will know what it means to peacefully and productively build bridges with the LGBT community.



The Open Table Vol. 1 & 2The Open Table introduces believers and nonbelievers to the person and deity of Christ in a new and refreshing way.

There are many people who argue God doesn’t exist and many who argue God does. Still, millions know that, all arguments aside, what they feel in their souls is a need for God. To some, the idea of searching for God sounds as ridiculous as chasing a leprechaun to get his pot of gold. And yet few go looking for a leprechaun, while millions go on looking for God. At the heart of the Christian story—the story at the heart of The Open Table—is this basic idea: God shows up in the lives of people who search for Him.  http://www.jointheopentable.com/

Walking with God: Talk to Him. Hear from Him. Really. (John Eldredge)

In the book Walking with God, John Eldredge shows us what an intimate relationship with God looks like day to day. God longs to speak, and it is our right and privilege to hear His voice. Yet, somehow, the looming discontent of most Christians is a lack of conversational intimacy with God.

Where You Live Matters: Developing a Vision for Your City http://qideas.org/studies/

In Where You Live Matters: Developing a Vision for Your City, groups will be challenged by a fundamental lifestyle question: Should where you live dramatically shape the way you practice your faith?

It’s not just about what you can afford, the square footage you need or the size of the garage. Maybe it goes much deeper than that. Is it possible that God has a bigger vision for our apartments, houses and neighborhoods than we do? What about the places we shop, the neighbors we encounter, the cities we call home?

In this Q Society Room study, groups will discuss God’s heart for the world He created and how local places—the cities and neighborhoods in which we live—are central to that. Participants will be exposed to what the Bible has to say about cities; they’ll be encouraged to embrace a theology of place and discuss recent trends regarding urban and suburban development— making sense of their connection to the Christian faith. Get ready to think differently about where you live. God has a vision for your city.
Timothy Keller: Grace of the City, Mel McGowan: From the Garden to the City, Joel Kotkin: The Future of the Suburbs, Timothy Keller: Grace in and For the City


The Whole Gospel:  Revisiting Our Message to The World http://qideas.org/studies/ n The Whole Gospel: Revisiting Our Message to the World, groups will be challenged to gain a more holistic understanding of the gospel that reshapes our lives and our message to a broken world.

The Bible is a story. Not like a children’s fairytale or a sci-fi fantasy. But a grand story that tells us about God and his work in the world. So the Bible is also our story. But the way we share our story with others reveals the kind of gospel message we believe in. Many Christians have come to believe in a gospel that is only concerned with getting individuals to heaven, but could there be more?

In this Q Society Room experience, your group will be challenged to revisit the story of the Bible. You’ll explore the richness of its themes and see how it shapes every aspect of our lives—from what we believe to how we live, how we interact with culture and how we share this essential “good news” with others.

3 Story: Preparing for a Life of Evangelism (Dave Rahn)

Evangelism is an essential element of every youth group. But when traditional evangelism methods prove awkward, ineffective, or uncomfortable for students to embrace, it’s almost impossible to equip your students to understand and share their faith. But 3Story is different. 3Story is a way of life that guides followers of Christ to BE good news while telling stories of THE Good News. Based squarely on relationships, 3Story focuses God’s story, my story (the student), and their story (their friends). This two-disc curriculum course (based on Youth for Christ’s 3Story training) presents an interactive learning experience that equips students to live and practice the 3Story lifestyle—a biblically based, culturally relevant form of discipleship-evangelism that emphasizes being real in personal interactions. With eight 50-minute training sessions—and options to use as is or create your own 3Story training event—this curriculum kit is an ideal resource for youth workers who want to teach students how to build deep, authentic relationships with Jesus and genuine, transparent relationships with friends. *Includes 2 DVDs and 5 participant’s guides.

A twenty-six-word parade of hope: beginning with God, ending with life, and urging us to do the same. Brief enough to write on a napkin or memorize in a moment, yet solid enough to weather two thousand years of storms and questions. http://www.maxlucado.com/316/
