LIFE GROUPS

LIFE Groups are about Living In Faith Everyday. During the year, we have weeknight Life Groups and Spiritual Growth Groups for 6-10 weeks at a time.  We gather to learn more about the Bible, understand our gifts, grow in character and learn parenting, marriage and other skills. Please take a moment to browse through the information below.  If you have any questions at all, contact the office!

DISCIPLESHIP

Theologian Robert Farrar Capon observed that even though Romans 5:8 reads: “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us,” most of us morph it into something like this: “But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us on the condition that after a reasonable length of time we would be the kind of people no one would ever have had to die for in the first place. Otherwise, the whole deal is off.” After the initial thrill of the gospel wears off, we come to believe that Christ is looking for an off-ramp in his relationship with us. We are sure he is perpetually disappointed with us. However, in the one place in the Bible where Jesus tells us what his heart is like, he describes it as “gentle and lowly.” Dane Ortlund’s book on these words surveys the Scriptures as well as the Puritans in order to help weary believers on their journey toward heaven. Join Pastor Joe as he facilitates an 8-week discussion-based group on this book.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Are you thirsty?  Do you know why? Perhaps like me you are stretched thin with weariness.  Perhaps like me you are desperate for God‘a presence and a vital intimacy with Him.  Or maybe you feel just a little bit thirsty, or are not sure what you feel.  

 

Wherever we are, Linda Dillow invites us to join her on this exciting adventure of knowing Christ intimately and basking in His presence! 

 

This course is designed for women.  You will be asked to memorize Scripture and practice private worship weekly.  You will also need to read a chapter in the book and answer 10-15 questions before coming to class.

SPIRITUAL GROWTH

In the Bible, God reveals who he is, what he is like, and what he has done in history. Humanity in general and followers of Jesus Christ in particular are privileged to have this information available to us in a variety of forms and translations. But we only benefit from it if we read it.

 

Reading through the Bible from beginning to end can be difficult.  It is easy to begin with great enthusiasm and just as easy to quit before reading the whole thing. We need a plan.  Better yet, a habit that we can cultivate for the rest of our life.

 

In this class, we will practice together a few different types of daily Bible reading plans with the intention of finding some that you can turn into a habit.  Perhaps you will find the one you will follow for the rest of your life. Or perhaps you can mix and match a few of them. The point is, the treasures contained in the Bible become ours when we habitually read through it again and again.

CONNECTED LIVES THROUGH LIFE GROUPS

  • I felt very comfortable in my group.  Great facilitator.  It was uplifting to experience the diversity of scripture and to discuss it openly. 
  • This helps me feel like church is happening all week long. 
  • I admire the facilitators because it was clear they put a lot of work into preparation for the presentations.  They  gave so much information and insights.  They did a great job!
  • I love the Christ family connection in addition to Sundays. 
  • I got to know others on a deeper level. 
  • The wide variety of courses always makes it difficult to choose just one. 
  • I really appreciate sharing time with fellow Christians and that they all wanted to know me better.
