God has invited us to experience Him in an intimate love relationship through which He reveals to us His will, His ways, and His work. This study is for those who wish to take their relationship with God to a deeper level.
We will learn how to:
– Know when God is speaking to us
– Recognize God’s activity around us
– Adjust our lives to God and His ways
– Identify what God wants to do through us
– Respond to God’s activity in our lives
– Understand the importance of God’s timing
When we recognize where God is working, we can join Him in what He is doing. Then we will experience God doing through us what only He can do. NOTE: This is a 13-week interactive Summer ZOOM GROUP for men only.
God often works in ways that we do not see and often in ways that we’d least expect. In the book of Isaiah, God says “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways” (55:8). Pastor, best-selling author, Bill Crowder examines six times in the Bible when we see God intervene in a surprising way. This intervention is captured in the phrase “But God…” These words in Scripture often signal that we are about to see God turn things upside down to accomplish His plan.
– The surprise of long preparation
– The surprise of full provision
– The surprise of divine love
– The surprise of life out of death
– The surprise of God’s working
– The surprise of God’s comfort
NOTE: This is a six-week interactive ZOOM GROUP for men only.
James had a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but his letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like for us all. The Book of James is filled with practical wisdom for Christians, calling us to live out genuine faith through good works, but it is also rooted in rich theology. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of the Christian faith into our daily lives.
This ZOOM GROUP is a verse-by-verse study of the entire Book of James and will include in-depth review and discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring their Bibles to this study. The New King James Version is preferred, but not necessary. NOTE: This a seven-week interactive ZOOM GROUP. This group will NOT meet on Tues, July 7th.
What is the BEST news you have ever heard? Was it surprising? Did it change the way you think? Or was it something you wanted to be true but didn’t dare hope for?
At an unprecedented time like this, many of us may be asking deep questions about the meaning of life and the existence of God. Christianity Explored is a small group study that journeys through Mark’s Gospel and provides answers to the 12 most frequently asked questions about God. Join us as we explore who Jesus is, what He achieved, and what it means for us today. NOTE: This is an eight-week interactive ZOOM GROUP.
At some point we have all asked, “Is Christianity really working for me? Or is following Jesus really worth it?” But what makes us ask these questions in the first place? Why are we so tempted by the allure of a life outside God’s design?
Thankfully, Jesus addressed this question through the well-known parable of the Prodigal Son from the gospel of Luke. In this story, we meet a young man who demands his inheritance and then squanders it in a far-off country away from the watchful eye of his father. When he finds that the world and its pleasures do not deliver on their promises, he arises and returns home.
This Bible study walks through the parable verse by verse, showing us what it means to follow God and walk with Him in a relationship of love and commitment, and ultimately illustrating that the best life is found in the love of our Father. NOTE: This an eight-week interactive ZOOM GROUP.
Generally, people fall into two groups: those who believe in GOD and those who don’t believe in GOD. Within those two categories, there are passive and active mindset variabilities.
All are welcome to join Dr. Damaris-Lois Lang, Neurobiologist, for a discussion exploring the Person of Jesus Christ. This will be especially engaging for the science-minded. You’ll be challenged to think about where you stand in and outside of faith and focus on the claims of Jesus Christ; not as a religion, but as a Person, discussing the crux of HIS message to humanity. This discussion is open to all (believers, unbelievers, and seekers). NOTE: This is a seven-week interactive ZOOM GROUP that begins on Thurs, June 18th.
When we hear the name Gideon, most of us think about his 300 soldiers or a fleece spread beneath the evening sky. But Gideon’s story is so much bigger than that. This is a story about God and His people—His love for them, as well as His strength operating in spite of, even through, their weakness.
This 7-session study will encourage you to recognize your weakness as the key that the Lord gives you to unlock the full experience of His strength in your life. Instead of ignoring, neglecting, or trying to escape your weaknesses, learn to see them as the gifts given specifically and strategically by God. If you’ve ever felt insufficient, ill-equipped, incompetent, or outnumbered, this study is for you. NOTE: This is a seven-week interactive ZOOM GROUP for women only.
The Father’s Plan: A Bible Study for Dads encourages men at every age and stage of life to strengthen their relationship with God, building a legacy of faith to leave for future generations.
This study will help fathers explore fatherhood in the light of the Bible’s teachings and help lead dads to reflect on their legacy and to grow in their God-given role. NOTE: This is an eight-week interactive ZOOM GROUP for fathers.
