Resources

Grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus. 
(2 Peter 3:18)

We desire to be a community that is obediently following Jesus, becoming more like Him and helping others do the same thing. We desire that this page can be a resource for you in your own journey of following Jesus and as you help others follow Him too!

READING THE BIBLE

The Bible tells us, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness (2 Tim. 3:16)." We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God, and we want to be people who are immersed in it so we can know Him more! We know the Bible is not an easy book to read, so we wanted to help you navigate it with these resources!

  • Resources for Study

    The Bible Project

    The Bible Project produces outstanding videos that help unpack the main themes, books, stories and characters throughout Scripture. These are great to use to supplement personal study, small group study and to help students and children engage with Scripture.

    Overview of the Bible Story

    This is a visual representation of the overarching storyline of the Bible.

    Old Testament Kings and Prophets Timeline

    This timeline helps you see where all the kings and prophets fall chronologically, and it shows which kings "did what was right in the eyes of the Lord." This is a helpful tool to accompany your reading through the Old Testament.

 

PRAYER

Prayer is the primary work of God's people, and Jesus said it's what he wants his people to be marked by (Lk. 19:46). It's incredible to consider that God desires to interact with us, and through prayer, we can know God, learn what He cares about and experience His transforming power in our everyday lives. 

Below are several practices, teachings and other resources to help you grow in your prayer life - wherever you are at in that journey! 

    SOUL-CARE

    “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls." - Jesus (Matt. 11:28-29)

    We live in the busiest time in history! We are overly-stimulated, preoccupied and stressed. But, we have a solution in Jesus that sets apart the people of God as people marked by emotional and spiritual health!

    Soul-Care is a term that involves paying attention to and caring for your soul through the consistent practice of spiritual disciplines that allow us to "Be still and know that [God] is God (Ps. 46:10)." These practices and resources are here to help you do just that!

    • Silence and Solitude

      If you want to take a step and have a retreat (could be one day or a few days), here are a couple great places to check out in the Indianapolis area.

      Fall Creek Abbey

      Benedict Inn

      You can also reserve the Prayer Room at Eagle Church for a shorter retreat time if you want something close to home by emailing

    • Examen and Confession

      Ruth Haley Barton writes about the importance of Examen, Confession and Repentance and provides a guide for repentance in this helpful article about repentance.

      Article about Repentance

      Check out this simple guide to practice the exercise of Examen.

      Examen Guide

      The Fall Creek Abbey is an amazing retreat center in Indianapolis that provides spiritual direction, retreat space and many great resources. The linked page has several contemplative practices (like Examen and Confession) that can be useful guides.

      Contemplative Practices

      Psalm 51 is a great Scripture to pray through to guide confession.

      See the recommended readings below for more great resources.
