Chuck Swindoll's

Strengthening Your Grip
Essentials in an Aimless World

Anything goes! That attitude characterizes life in our culture today. Unfortunately, that mind-set has produced an aimless generation that has lost its grip on what God calls important. Though we never run out of things to keep us busy, we have allowed life’s essentials to slip right through our fingers.

If you want to get hold of what’s really important to God, join Chuck Swindoll in Strengthening Your Grip: Essentials in an Aimless World. This series will help you find biblical direction on issues you face every day, including:

  • Setting godly priorities
  • Engaging in biblical community
  • Honoring God with your money
  • Enjoying leisure
  • Submitting to authority
  • Loving your family
  • And more . . .

Learn how to strengthen your grip on 16 changeless truths
from God’s Word and begin to apply these truths to your life.

Practical Christianity
Old Testament Principles for Our New Life in Christ
June 16–July 14, 2014

What does it mean to be a Christian, not just in theory but in practice? In our culture where following Christ is not popular, we may have very few examples of faithful living in the midst of trials, temptations, and disappointments. As believers, we need help incorporating into our everyday lives the benefits of our relationship with the Lord.

If you would like to get down to the real-world essence of Christianity, then this message series from Chuck Swindoll is for you. Practical Christianity will help you to:

  • Discover enduring truths for godly living
  • Learn from the faithful examples of Abraham, Joseph, and David
  • Face trials and temptations armed with God’s power

Practical Christianity will help you blow the dust off some important biblical principles and finally see how they relate to your life.
