Do you know any birdwatchers? Have you ever wondered what motivates them to get up early, purchase expensive binoculars and bird books, make lists, talk about migration patterns, weather, and whether nests are being occupied on time?

2nd Helpings


“With the world’s population now at 7.7 billion, any discussions about our church evangelizing the world as condition for Jesus’ return is plainly unrealistic, except if we say it as self-aggrandizement, because there are no measurable ways of evaluating such a venture.” Do you agree?

A world-famous mountain climber sat with me in an obscure Pakistani hotel, smoking, talking about life. He had just made a daring rescue and saved his friend’s life. Soon a helicopter would airlift him to safety. Find out more when you hear the story called “Nic At Night.” Scripture: John 3:1-25, John 19:38-42 “Nic At […]

Straight Path In A Crooked World

Picture a tough man crying in the wilderness “Don’t spend your life as a crooked little man in a crooked little house with a crooked dog or cat and a crooked little mouse.” Instead, find the straight path “down into the water way down a little bit deeper.” Our Bible study will help you find […]


It is easy to become a Muslim. You only have to say just one sentence out loud. So what is required to become a Christian. Is there a Billy Graham formula that is needed? Can you identify the time and place where it happened? Ever wondered if you were less of a Christian if you […]
