Sample Excerpts

[Purpose Logo] [PURPOSE]

Purpose offers a practical guide for daily Christian living with inspirational stories on monthly themes like celebrations, mentoring, the value of small things, and overcoming excuses. The personal, real-life stories make Purpose easy to read and share with others, to discuss in a Sunday school class or mid-week group, and as a source of sermon illustrations.

In addition to personal stories of inspiration, each issue of Purpose also includes some poetry and a puzzle on the designated theme. One new feature starting in December 2019 will be a one-page guide for leading a Sunday school class or mid-week group on the monthly theme with the stories in Purpose as a resource.

To subscribe for yourself or your church, as a gift subscription for a family member or friend, to use in a Sunday school class or mid-week group, please call 1-800-245-7894, or email us with your order. Annual individual subscription: $29.10 USD or $40.65 CAD (including GST). Group rates available. All prices subject to change.
