Saturday Bible Study @ 9:30am
Saturday Worship @ 11am
This small group series is based on Mark Batterson’s book “In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day.” The book is available at Amazon. At the time of this writing, Mark is making the book available a bit cheaper directly from him if you buy by the case (20 books). Mark is the pastor of National Community Church in Washington D.C. The church website is http://theaterchurch.com/. He also has a blog at http://www.evotional.com.
Mark also made the decision to make everything they did for this series open source. That means you can download all their graphics, movie clips, sermons, etc. for free at http://chasethelion.com/. In a similar fashion, we are making the resources that we did freely available too. Some of our graphics will look very similar to Mark’s – that’s because we used what he offered.
Read this first - Notes and Overview.doc. It gives a good overview of the resources used in this series.
We printed a bookmark for each member of the small groups.

Each small group member received a 2-pocket folder. The folder contained introductory information, group organizational information (prayer lists, contact lists, reading schedule, etc.), as well as the study guides. Download the documents separately or in one zip file (requires WinZip or compatible program).

Some sermons notes are in PowerPoint format. Download the free viewer here
Sermon notes are also available in RTF (Rich Text Format). Most every word processor can open a RTF file. Sermon notes have two versions of the notes. The first version without the blanks filled in so you can follow along, and the second version has the blanks filled in. Both versions are contained in the RTF file.
