Sign Up Button

In this six-session small group Bible study, Andy Stanley challenges us to stop flirting with disaster and establish personal guardrails. Guardrails…..They're everywhere, but they don't really get much attention ... until somebody hits one.  And then, more often than not, it is a lifesaver.
