Jesus is the Great and Trustworthy Prophet: He startles us with the true values of the Kingdom of God.
And Jesus said to them, “Follow me!” (Matthew 4:20).
I am excited to introduce a major resource for learning better how to follow Jesus. It’s called RightNow Media, a huge online resource that offers over 10,000 videos to believers and their families, small groups, and the Church. You can think of it as a Christian Netflix. Go to the Stone Hill website to view a video introduction.
Now here’s the super great news! Stone Hill has subscribed to RightNow Media! As a free gift to each and every one in our congregation, you can gain immediate access. Think of it: anywhere, anytime, from your smart device or computer, all sorts of resources for growing in faith and following Jesus. If we have your email address you have already received your invitation. If you have not received an invitation to create your login and password, please email the office at email@example.com.
To whet your appetite, here are some comments from different leaders in our church about RightNow. First, Mary McCormack:
Parents will discover loads of great child-friendly videos your kids can safely watch any time, including classics like Veggie Tales, SuperBook, and Adventures in Odyssey, as well as new videos on science, friendship, and Bible Stories. For you parents, there’s an additional section with a wealth of resources on parenting from Tony Evans, Mark Gregston, Gary Smalley and so many more. Whether you’ve just become a parent or you’re facing new challenges, this site will prove over and over to be a great help to you.

Topics include friendship, singleness, marriage, faith and work, and etc. In other words, endless. Sources are from TGC, Catalyst, Q Ideas, and many others-all in one place! What am I trying to say? This is a super helpful resource for you to navigate your young adult season in this digital age.
