Spend your first 5 minutes with God

It will equip you to better study and know the Word of God.


Our Current Study

A Better Way: How Jesus’ Life Guides Us to Peace in a World That Steals Our Sanity, A Matthew Study Guide

An eight-week study in the First 5 mobile app starting October 31.

Even Jesus acknowledged this world is a mess.

It seems like every time we turn around there is a new problem, new conflict, new “bad news.” The list of things to stress and lose sleep over is long. And as we cycle through feelings of worry, anxiety and sometimes even panic, it’s easy to wonder if there’s a better way to live.

In this eight-week study, we are going to look at the life of Jesus as recorded in the book of Matthew. The world outside of Jesus’ life was as chaotic as it gets: harsh empires, murderous rulers, suffering and hurting people. The world around Jesus did not have peace. But He offered Himself as peace in the midst of it.

Jesus’ path toward peace will not necessarily calm what’s going on around you, but as many of us have already experienced, it will absolutely calm the chaos inside. And as His peace fills your heart and mind, maybe you will find that you can breathe a little deeper, sleep a little sounder and feel a little more sane.
