Community Group Leaders-
There is a 2-week hiatus between major sermon series here at First--we begin our series on the book of Colossians beginning May 12. For that series, we will be following a fantastic study by Louie Giglio, available on Right Now Media. Feel free to preview it there. If you don't have a free FBC Right Now Media account, please contact Peggy in the church office at (209)334-1332 and she will help you get going.
So for the next 2 weeks, there will be no available Online video DVD from Jake (I know... so sad!)
If you would like some help with material for these two weeks, please let either myself or Pastor Glen know and we will get you going.
For those who are interested, my theology class is doing a video from N.T. Wright on Colossians 1:9-23 (coincidentally) and it might be a good way to introduce the upcoming series. The whole video is 54 minutes but don't worry-- the sermon only takes the first 33 minutes and then you can shut it off and discuss.
N.T. Wright's video and my discussion questions are available below. They are a little bit "theological" but I bet you will enjoy them!
This week we are beginning a new series called "Meals with Jesus." Jesus loved a good meal... but more than that He loved the people He was with. Enjoy!

It's impossible to do your "work as worship" if you worship your work. This week, we're talking about what it means to rest. Enjoy!

What would it look like if we took Jesus at His word... that He came to offer us abundant life? This is part 1 in our 3-part series, "Jesus and the Rest of the Week. Enjoy!

This week, our community groups will begin a 5-part series by John Ortberg on the life of Jesus. The first video is available here; the rest will be available in the coming weeks in the lobby at FBC via DVD (due to copyright restrictions). It is a powerful study that will pair well with our series "The Incomparable Jesus" on Sunday mornings. The first discussion guide is below. May your discussion be rich!
Our Community Group videos will be back the week of January 6th. Till then, have a merry Christmas and a happy new year!
This week, Sarah Sciarini is talking about King David's legacy, and what the restoration of his story means for our stories
