We’re meant to navigate life together!

DIFFERENCE MAKERS

TUES @ 7PM
CO-ED GROUP

REACH CHURCH

7 East Lincoln Avenue

Mount Vernon, NY 10552

Various Guest Facilitators

Class Description

MidWeek in Mount Vernon presents Difference Makers. When we look at the needs in the world around us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and that feeling often leads to paralyzing inaction. With so much to do, how do we know where to start? We feel unqualified to lead change. However, God leads through unlikely people. We start by discovering the purpose and mission God has designed for us. As followers of Jesus, we have been called to make a difference for the Kingdom of God. The truth is that we were created for more than watching.

 

We have a history-changing, difference-making, life-giving, Spirit-empowered legacy to leave. This study will motivate and equip us to get off the sidelines and into the thick of ministry with Jesus. As He works through us, we will pray, go, and give of ourselves to make an eternal difference. NOTE: This REACH GROUP meets on the Mount Vernon campus and will be led by various guest facilitators.

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Road

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Pastor Daniel Valentin

Class Description

Sometimes circumstances in life make it difficult for men to be all God wants them to be. But Tony Evans urges men to stop looking at their circumstances as excuses and instead to see them as challenges and opportunities for success. Exploring the examples of men of God throughout the Bible, this study will challenge you to lay down your excuses, stop compromising, and fight to be a man of character and commitment. Despite your setbacks, failures, and pressures, you can still find purpose, meaning, and direction in life and become the man God has called you to be. NOTE: This REACH GROUP is for men only.

THE BAIT OF SATAN

WOMEN’S GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitators: Marie Denise Barnes & Sarah Mascia

Class Description

This REACH GROUP will expose Satan’s deceptive snares and the offense used to get believers out of the will of God. The issue of offense – the very core of The Bait of Satan – is often the most difficult obstacle an individual must face and overcome. Jesus said, “It is impossible that no offenses should come” (Luke 17:1 NKJV). Your choice is not in whether or not you get offended, but in how you choose to respond. This message will empower you to stay free from offense, enabling you to have an unhindered relationship with God and others. NOTE: This REACH GROUP is for women only.

What if one word could change everything for your marriage? According to best-selling author Gary Thomas, it can – and that word is “cherish!” Drawing from decades of experience with couples, he believes that when you and your spouse choose to notice, appreciate, honor, and encourage one another it will bring hope, light, and life into your relationship. In this study, author Gary Thomas reveals how marriages cannot only survive but actually thrive when husbands and wives learn to cherish each other. NOTE: This REACH GROUP is for married couples only.

DISCIPLESHIP THRU THE MENTORING RELATIONSHIP

WED @ 7PM
CO-ED GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Road

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Bobby Ossofsky

Class Description

Everyone desires a deep, meaningful connection with others. Everyone. But to mentor or be mentored in the Christian context can change the course of your life. Something powerful happens when you do life with someone in a position to spiritually lead and influence you — or when you do the same for others.

 

Mentoring is a one-on-one relational discipleship model where one growing believer encourages and equips another to REACH his or her potential as a disciple. Drawing from Biblical examples like Jesus and His disciples and Paul and Timothy, we will examine the life-transforming process of a mentoring relationship.

 

This REACH GROUP is both a practical and spiritual guide to Biblical mentoring, providing easy-to-model life application for how to have and be a mentor.

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Ron Abad

Class Description

If you could spend a few minutes with the giants of faith in the Old Testament in person, what lessons would they share with you? In LEARNING FROM THE GIANTS, John C. Maxwell draws on fifty years of studying the Bible to share the stories of Elijah, Elisha, Job, Jacob, Deborah, Isaiah, Jonah, Joshua and Daniel. These people fought and won epic battles, served kings and endured great hardships for God…and they came out on the other side transformed through His grace. Through them, we’ll explore timeless lessons and learn about leadership, ourselves, and our relationship with God.

THURS @ 7PM
CO-ED GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitators: Beena Thomas & Yvonne Bronstorph

Class Description

Intercessory prayer is prayer for others. An intercessor is one who takes the place of another or pleads another’s case. Jesus Christ is our model for intercessory prayer. In John 17, He stood before God and interceded for us. He still intercedes for us today and He invites us to enter into that partnership for others. This REACH GROUP is devoted to learning about prayer from God’s Word and spending time praying and interceding together.

THE TRUE ESSENCE OF PRAYER

FRI @ 11:30AM
CO-ED GROUP

LANG HOME

40 Curry Road

Hastings-on-Hudson, NY 10706

Facilitator: Damaris-Lois Lang

Class Description

1 Thessalonians 5:17 says, “Pray without ceasing.” What is prayer? Why do we need to pray? If God is all-knowing, what is the power in prayer? Why does it seem like God answers some prayers, but not others? These are just some of the questions surrounding the topic of prayer.

 

Prayer is more than just asking; it’s abiding in and connecting with the One who loves us perfectly. Understanding prayer and walking an effective prayer life is transformative in the life of a believer.

 

In this REACH GROUP, we will develop a greater understanding of the true essence of prayer. Come and let’s explore prayer together so that we may live a life of greater intimacy with Jesus! NOTE: This group is part of a series that is continuing into the Winter semester. However, participants can jump on-board at any time. This REACH GROUP meets in a home in Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.

LA EPÍSTOLA A LOS GÁLATAS

FRI @ 7PM
CO-ED SPANISH GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitators: Moises & Norma Alvarado & Luis Marrero

Class Description

El apóstol Pablo escribió a las iglesias al Sur de Galatas después de haber plantado estas iglesias durante su primer viaje misionero en la region de Asia Menor. La relación intima entre el apóstol y estas iglesias explica el tono fuerte que Pablo uso en su carta desde el mismo comienzo de la carta. Pablo mostró a los Galatas su indignacion, arriesgando así perder la confianza de aquellos que se habían convertido en estas iglesias, por que quería asegurarse que ellos estuviesen caminando en la verdad y no desviandose y siguiendo falsas doctrinas.  Para enfatizar en la seriedad del  asunto, el tomo la pluma de su escribano y escribió el final de la epístola con letras grandes (Galatas 6:11)

 

En nuestro grupo de estudio estaremos utilizando como guía el libro: Lo que nos dice la Biblia, por Henrietta C. Mears. Estudiaremos en su totalidad la espistola. Es recomendable traer su Biblia de estudio a las reuniones. NOTA: Este grupo es para participantes que hablan español.

THE POWER OF PRAYER

FRI @ 7PM
CO-ED GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Rd

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Yvonne Bronstorph

Class Description

James 5:16 says, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” Prayer has the power to transform lives and circumstances when we “approach God’s throne of grace with confidence” (Hebrews 14:1), certain in the knowledge that He will meet with us, answer our requests and extend His mercy to us. It is at the throne of grace that we also receive power to confront challenges with the confidence of Christ and where the Holy Spirit will gradually shape us into a person who impacts others for Christ. Prayer is the force that binds believers together and when God’s people unite and call on His name, powerful things happen in our world. A life devoted to prayer is powerful!

 

Topics to be discussed include: What is prayer? To Whom Are We to Pray? Prayers of Thanksgiving & Gratitude. Praying in Repentance. Praying for Others – Intercession. Listening in Prayer.

TRUSTWORTHY

FRI @ 7PM
WOMEN’S GROUP

REACH CHURCH

294 Old Mamaroneck Road

White Plains, NY 10605

Facilitator: Pastor Caren Petfield

Class Description

When hard times come and it seems God is deviating from the plan we assume our life should follow, we’re more likely to want to tame God, not trust Him. It’s then that we begin to press into our ways and our own timing. No human can carry the weight of being their own god, but so many of us try.

 

In this 6-session study of 1 & 2 Kings, join Lysa TerKeurst in Israel as she honestly reveals the places of distrust in her own heart while exploring the deeply applicable Scriptures that will teach us how to truly trust God.

 

Ladies…it’s GIRLS’ NIGHT! Let’s pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea and TOGETHER learn to trust in the goodness and faithfulness of God! NOTE: This REACH GROUP is for women only.
