    It’s Easter, and it’s the perfect time to reflect on God’s great love! Hear the stories of Josh, who finds that no amount of running can separate him from God’s love, and Matt, who learns that the love of Jesus gives us life abundantly!

    Love is the glue that holds us all together

    The Bible tells us that the church is the body of Christ. And when a foot goes one way, and a hand goes another, tensions are bound to arise. So today the Discover the Word team gathers to talk about how the way we love each other is the glue that holds us together. Listen to […]

    Discover how Christ changes our hearts to be like His

    The Bible tells us that faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains. But even that is worthless without this one thing.

    There is no substitute for love

    Everyone with a smartphone has an entire library in their pocket. A few taps or clicks, and we can get the information we have questions about in mere seconds. But we’ll see today on Discover the Word that knowledge is no substitute for love. Join us around the table as we talk about “Falling into […]

    “Falling into Love”

    We all know someone with the gift of gab. When they talk, everyone listens.

It’s from the group’s study of 1 Corinthians 13 titled “Falling into Love.” And […]

    A letter from Paul

    Don’t you love getting mail from a friend? When you see a loved one’s name on the return address, or in your e-mail inbox, you’re filled with joy and anticipation. And today on Discover the Word, we’ll hear about a personal letter the apostle Paul wrote to Philemon—from one friend to another. But it was […]

    We are not meant to go it alone

    The wisdom of Ecclesiastes tells us that “a cord of three strands is not easily broken,” and that “two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.” We were never meant to live life without others. And today on Discover the Word, we’ll see that not even the apostle Paul could go […]

    The message of Philemon

    There’s only one path to God, but there are many paths to Jesus

    “There’s only one path to God, and that’s Jesus. But there are many paths to Jesus.” Today on Discover the Word, we will discuss how “Carrying Our Friends to Christ” involves coming alongside them in ways that are meaningful to them.
