The goal of our group is to be a place where we can follow the command in Hebrews 10:24 to “consider how we may spur one another on to love and good deeds” by seeking to build a strong community where we encourage and support each other. We will study the Bible to see how the “one another” commands should affect our lives (initially looking at an overview of these commands, then seeing them in deeper context in Colossians), read some books to encourage us to grow in our walks with Christ (the first will be Respectable Sins by Jerry Bridges), and look for ways to build community. This is a discussion-based group, so some preparation will benefit both you and the other class members with a deeper, richer discussion. Each month we will spend one Sunday divided into a men’s group and women’s group and pray for specific needs in each person’s life.
Can people come to Christ through dreams? Are there guardian angels? Those are just two of the questions that we sought Biblical answers to this last year while studying the book of Daniel. If you don’t know the Biblical answers to these questions, then maybe you need to join us! We are couples and singles that desire to grow in our relationship with God and live lives pleasing to Him. Our current group is aged 30 to 80, but any age is welcome! Several of our men rotate leading our class in a discussion format, each taking a chapter. Folks are encouraged to participate in the discussion, but no one is required to do so –nor are the men automatically expected to lead the group. We study books of the Bible as well as books that address the Christian life, and we meet periodically for additional fellowship times. We are currently studying Daniel using the MacArthur Bible Studies series. YOU are welcome to join us!
Roots is a group of men and women of all ages who gather on Sunday mornings at the church and routinely throughout the year in people's homes to be an encouragement to each other and to grow in their desire for God. On Sunday mornings the group spends time in fellowship, in prayer, and in the Word as well as going through books together. The group seeks to form and strengthen friendships within the church whereby we can both sharpen and serve each other.
Psalm 90:12 is an inspiration to our group. “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Both sharing and praying are important features of our group time. Discussion, rather that lecture is our method of enrichment. Much of the material in the Lifeway quarterly is foundational to the Bible doctrine we know and believe. So in our group discussion we work at discovering the relevance of these truths to contemporary issues as they challenge our daily lives with the purpose that we may with honesty and understanding engage with our Creator and one another. We study to be ready to share the gospel of Jesus Christ whenever the opportunity exists.
Artios is a campus group for all ages that focuses on helping believers become equipped through the scriptures to be used by God in the lives of people inside and outside the church. This year we will study these topics:
- I Thessalonians
- The Pursuit of God
- What does it mean to be a disciple?
- Respectable Sins
A class for women of any age and marital status who want to respond to God’s call for a deeper understanding of His Word and its relevance to daily life. Bible study, prayer, and nurturing relationships with other women make a dynamic combination. Members develop endearing friendships that meet the need for a place to belong, grow, serve, and live the abundant life in Christ.
We begin by sharing prayer requests and praises and pray over them. Prayer is a vital part of our class mission. This is followed by our bible based book study and discussion time. In January, 2021, we began a book study entitled “Becoming Emotionally Whole” by Dr. Charles Stanley. Our emotions are a gift from God. This study reveals how regardless of where we are on the spectrum of emotional growth, we can take the necessary steps that God wants us to take to have truth and lasting emotional health. This current book study should continue until the end of June 2021.
The group meets on Mondays from 6:30 to 7:30 on Zoom. Mike is teaching a study on heaven, and Eddie is teaching through John MacArthur’s book, 12 Unlikely Heroes. The teaching topics alternate each month. If you serve on Sunday mornings, we’d love to have you join us.
Growing as a disciple (follower) of Jesus Christ is not something that happens automatically. It takes dedication, commitment, and learned skills to continue a lifelong, growing devotion to our Lord. Join us as we focus on growing in our personal relationships with Christ using the Colossians 2:7 Series discipleship materials.
Your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors, your children, your grandchildren, your parents, perhaps, even you want to know – is it truly reasonable to believe the Christian faith? Historic Christian beliefs are under attack in every area, and under attack in some new and challenging ways. But these are exciting times for the equipped Christian. In recent years remarkable developments have dramatically strengthened the evidences and arguments for the truth of Christianity.
But, are you ready to give answers to those who want to know why you believe?
In a one year study, Persuasive Faith will help you to reason carefully and equip you to answer challenges in areas such as science, history, atheism, Islam, philosophy, trustworthiness of the Bible, Jesus of Nazareth, miracles, the resurrection, and more.
This class is mostly a teaching format with opportunities for questions and discussion. You will be urged to participate and take notes. Limited outside reading at a level you find personally comfortable will be encouraged. We would love to have you grab a notebook and pen and join us.
Every marriage needs to be growing stringer! With books, videos, group discussion, and fun we will cover God’s design for a faithful, growing, and joyful marriage.
