A Sneak Peak …. Upcoming Fall Small Group Opportunities

Following Jesus: Steps to a Passionate Faith—a class designed for anyone at the same time, especially geared for “New Christians.” This will be a small-group setting designed to explore faith through Scripture, discussion, prayers and study using the book by Carolyn Slaughter. The Study is divided into three segments: 1. Rediscovering Jesus;
2. Growing in the Spirit; 3. Living in Faith and Service. Together we will learn about Jesus and his role in our lives. We will discover more about our own spiritual gifts for ministry and new ways to be in service, and learn what it means to be part of the church, the community of Christ.

Covenant Bible Study—a 24-week, in-depth group Bible Study/Discussion in which participants read and discuss the Bible together—learning how to love God—and others better through table discussion with world renown theologians. This study differs from other Bible studies in that it emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern throughout the entire Bible; underscoring the unique relations that God chooses with us as his people. This study is designed to cover both the Old and New Testaments—discussing books from each in a way that illustrates the interconnectedness of scripture as a whole. A Bible study needn’t be complex or intimidating! It should be flexible, relevant and engaging—that’s why COVENANT BIBLE STUDY is broken into three eight-week modules—each dealing with a different aspect of what covenant means. (Not sure if you want to commit to all three? You are encouraged to try one module and then decide.)

New Bible Study from Beth Moore, Entrusted - A Study of 2 Timothy  We were never meant to take this journey of faith alone or in secret. God has entrusted us with the great and mighty gift of the gospel, something too precious and life-giving to keep to ourselves.  In this 6-session Bible study, Beth will encourage you to guard what God has entrusted to you, further His kingdom by sharing Christ with others, and pour into future generations just as Paul once mentored Timothy. Because in this journey of joy and hardship, we need each other to stay the course and live lives of faithfulness.
