Jesse Waggoner

Thank you for leading a small group study or participating in our online Bible study. Below you will find some additional suggestions and links that may be helpful.

In the main page for this series you will find links to the discussion guides for each session. Make sure each member of your group has his or her own copy.

You will also find links to an introductory video for each session. Please show these to your group at the beginning of each session. You can play these mp4 video files from a computer, laptop, or tablet. Hooking your device to a large screen monitor also works well for these videos.

Also you will find links to audio recordings. These were recorded while I led a “small group” through this study. Perhaps by listening to this audio you may pick up some additional ideas for your own group. I do not recommend that you play these live audio recordings to your group.

I know your time in the Word will be a blessing to you. I would love to hear about your study or your group. Write me at jwaggoner@calvarywv.com

Winning the Game of Life

Winning the Game of Life

Ask ten people what life is all about and you will likely get eleven answers! But God is the authoritative source for all things including us. In this Bible study you will discover what life is all about and the emptiness of living for the wrong goals. Here you will find links to videos to introduce each session, study guides and more. I know you will be blessed as find out how to win in the “game of life.”

Below you will find, for each session, an introductory video, an audio recording of me teaching this material in a live setting and a downloadable discussion guide for use in your small group or individual Bible study.  Go here for additional information and leader Resources for Online Bible study.

Stories You Never Heard in Sunday School

Stories You Never Heard in Sunday School

If you grew in church or in a home where the Bible was taught you learned stories from both the Old and New Testaments that kept you spell-bound.  There are, however, a number of stories that we mostly “skip over” when we teach children.  In this study we will take on these accounts head on.  And we will learn valuable life lessons from our God.  Don’t miss this study.
