Based on Mark Batterson’s 2011 book by the same title, The Circle Maker: Praying Circles around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears is now available as a church-wide campaign and it is one you are definitely going to want to take a look at.
Guiding congregations to learn “how to claim God-given promises, pursue God-sized dreams and seize God-ordained opportunities,” this is a study that will change the prayer lives of your members. If your congregation could use some help in learning to pray, The Circle Maker is a church-wide campaign that you need to consider.
Along with sermon outlines, you’ll also find promotional materials, trailers, worship backgrounds, and other collateral pieces available at TheCircleMaker.com. This is what I call a really good plug-and-play right off-the-shelf church-wide experience. It’s ready to go. All you need to do is pick the right time to use it.
A four week DVD-Driven study, these are some of the very best segments I’ve ever reviewed. The pitch-perfect combination of well-chosen Bible stories, God stories from the miraculous beginnings of National Community Church (the church Batterson planted and leads in Washington D.C.), and several truly amazing stories from NCC members make every segment both powerful and memorable.
The Participant’s Guide includes everything needed for a great small group experience and between-session activities. The thoughtfully crafted ice-breaker, a place to take notes during the video segment, and a skillfully written Bible study will help your group members engage in the topic. The opportunities for personal reflection and personal actions will help keep them engaged between sessions. Written by Batterson (along with Kevin and Sherry Harney), this is a study that will take your members on a journey that will powerfully impact their prayer lives.
If you’re looking for a church-wide campaign that can deepen your congregation’s faith while helping strengthen their commitment to prayer, you’ll want to take a look at The Circle Maker. I really loved it and I think you will too.
