“The Turning Point–Gospel of John” by Dr. Allen Hunt

  • Sept. 9, 16, 23, 30
  • Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28
  • Nov. 4

The Turning Point is a nine-session Bible study experience that’s perfect for people who want to get to know Jesus in the Scriptures but don’t know where to start. This study will introduce you to people and stories in the Gospel of John that you won’t find anywhere else in the Bible: the woman at the well; a man named Nicodemus; the woman caught in adultery; and Lazarus, the friend Jesus raised from the dead. You’ll read stories about Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana, Jesus washing the feet of his disciples, and Peter’s marvelous redemption after he denies Jesus three times. The people in these stories were transformed by their encounters with Jesus. By entering into their miraculous stories, you will encounter Jesus in a personal way and develop a deeper relationship with him that will transform your everyday life.

“Unplanned” the movie

  • Nov. 11

The inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation. Unplanned brings us an eye-opening look inside the abortion industry from a woman who was once its most passionate advocate. After reading Abby Johnson’s best-selling book of the same title, Cary and Chuck were moved to bring this inspiring true story to the big screen, giving voice to a woman who has been on both sides of the abortion conversation. Unplanned is the most important movie you’ll ever see on the most controversial issue of our time. No matter which side of the fence you’re on, no one will leave this film unmoved by Abby’s journey.

“Advent–Preparing for Christ” by Fr. Mitch Pacwa

  • Nov. 25
  • Dec. 2, 9, 16

Join us this Advent as we take 4 weeks to prepare ourselves for the coming of Christ! Are we ready for the King? Are our hearts ready to receive our Savior? The four weeks leading up to Christmas mark the beginning of the Western Church’s liturgical year. Advent is our time for reflection, meditation and preparation. This year the Sunday gospel readings at Mass come from the Gospel of Matthew. Our engagement with this gospel, woven with other parts of Scripture, like Isaiah, Romans, and James creates a beautiful tapestry of prepared anticipation for the Christ Child coming to the world and into our hearts.

“Kapaun’s Men–Virtue Series”

  • January 13, 20, 27
  • February 3, 10, 17, 24

Father Kapaun left a lasting impact on the world by living a life of virtue. We are called to do the same. The Kapaun’s Men Virtue Series is a 7-part video series with accompanying workbook that dives into the virtues as exemplified by Father Kapaun. Men from many walks of life help us to understand what virtue can look like in men’s lives today and encourage us to put it into practice. Featuring two of Father Kapaun’s fellow Prisoners of War, this video is sure to be a life-changing series.

“Kapaun’s Men–Stewardship Series”

  • March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30
  • April 13, 20, 27
  • May 4, 11

Want to have an extraordinary life? In its second video series, Kapaun’s Men examines how the concept of stewardship helps us as men recognize the unique set of gifts given to each of us by God and how to share those gifts with God and others. By focusing on Hospitality, Prayer, Formation and Service, this 10-part series helps us live as a gift to others and leave behind a legacy for our family, friends, and the world. As Father Kapaun taught, “God gave us our gifts, not for our own glory or pride, but that we might use them for God’s greater honor and glory. Use your gifts to help your fellow man as much as you can.”
