Connecting, Caring, Reaching Out, and Spiritual Growth


Reading the Sermon on the Mount with John Stott

The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ most inspiring and challenging description of the Christian counterculture. John Stott’s teaching on this timeless text shows how its value system, ethical standard, religious devotion, and network of relationships clearly distinguish it from both the nominal church and the secular world. In this volume, the message of the Sermon on the Mount is offered in brief, daily readings, taking us passage by passage through the Scripture text.

About Growth Groups:

Growth Groups are a source of support and friendship. They are a place to connect with other adults who may share similar passions, interests, and life issues. When people from various generations, cultures, and backgrounds gather together, the connection often forms genuine relationships. Growth Groups meet together to study a specific book or subject, pray, laugh, and serve to impact their church and communities. Growth Groups are a great way to get closer to God, care for one another, and meet new people. A variety of groups are offered to reflect changing needs and interests.
