Wesley showed us ways to reorder our lives through the “means of grace.”
Recharge. Reboot. Reorder. Whatever you want to call it, we need a process that helps us continuously renew our relationship with God so that we don’t drift away from our faith. Based on The Wesley Covenant for Renewal, Five Means of Grace is a six-week, video-based study that will show you how to reorder your life through prayer, searching Scripture, receiving the Lord’s Supper, fasting, and conferencing (worshiping together). You’ll learn how to recognize and affirm the outward signs, words, and actions of an invisible divine grace, deepening your relationship with God and making your faith more complete. A Leader Guide and DVD are also available.
These five means or channels are:
- Session 1: The Means of Grace Are Spiritual Practices (16:37)
- Session 2: One—Prayer (18:53)
- Session 3: Two—Searching the Scriptures (14:26)
- Session 4: Three—The Lord’s Supper (15:33)
- Session 5: Four—Fasting (14:11)
- Session 6: Five—Christian Conferencing (14:30)
Sessions are closed captioned. 6 videos; 14–19 mins. each.

With engaging stories and clear understanding of Scripture she invites us to experience God’s love through ancient practices that we desperately need.
