Taste For Truth

“Taste for Truth” is an 8-week Bible study designed to help those who struggle with emotional eating, learn to turn to the Lord instead. Through Bible study, evaluation, practical tips, and daily assignments, you’ll learn the truth that will set you free from the control of food. This study has two resources: a study book and a phone app. If you prefer not to use the phone app, a second text is available to use instead.

The Life of Paul

The apostle Paul led a dramatic and fascinating life from his conversion on the road to Damascus to his imprisonments to his speeches in the public square. His letters shaped the believers in the early church just as they do today. In this study guide by Jack Kuhatschek we will survey both the highlights of his life and the core teachings in his writings.

Armor of God

The Armor of God is an action plan for putting it on and developing a personalized strategy to secure victory
