What Are Learning Groups?
All of us are in different stages of our faith as well as difference places in life. What we have in common is our need to know Jesus more intimately and to learn how to live out our Christian faith. Learning Groups provide the opportunity to grow in our understanding of Jesus and how He impacts each area of our lives.
Each Learning Group covers a topic that centers around practical Christian living. Examples include marriage, parenting, prayer, how to read the Bible, and more. As people meet in these groups, they have the opportunity to grow alongside other believers, encourage each other, and learn together.
What Do These Groups Do?
All of the groups cover specific material which usually includes a book or handouts. Group members are asked to read the material prior to group each week and come prepared to discuss it. During the class, the leader will guide the group to connect the truths that they have read to their lives. The group meetings also provide an opportunity for people to ask questions they may have about the reading or the topic in general.
Childcare for each Learning Group will be available at the OneLife building. Please drop your kids off at 6:30 pm and pick them up no later than 9:00 pm. The cost for childcare for the entire Learning Group term is $60 for 1 child, $80 for 2 children, and $100 for 3+ children. If you would like to use the childcare available at OneLife, please select it as an add on to your registration. Spots are limited and are on a first come first serve basis. If you have any questions please contact our Kids Ministry Director, Larah Orzabal by emailing [email protected]
Summer 2019 Groups:
This group will be led by Seth and Allison Saldivar and will meet on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
This is not a premarital class so if you’re not married just yet, we’re going to ask that you not sign up for this group this time around.
One of God’s greatest gifts to us is the gift of marriage. It’s designed for our joy and intended to be a blessing to us and to those around us. So during this Learning Group we’re going to set aside several weeks to intentionally invest in our spouses and our marriages.
Throughout our Marriage Learning Group we’ll look at the truths of God’s word but also some practicals on how to be better husbands and better wives, as well as how to have a vibrant, healthy marriage.
So whether your marriage is in a terrible spot or a great spot, whether you’ve been married a week or a lifetime, if you want your marriage to be better this year than it was last year, we invite you to come join us for the Marriage Learning Group. It will be time well spent!
This group will be led by Chris and Megan Landon and will meet on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
Your most important goal as a parent is to raise sons and daughters who love God with all their heart and who will follow Jesus all the days of their life. As parents, we want more for our kids than for them just to become good moral citizens who contribute to society. Our deepest heart longing is for our kids to fall passionately in love with Jesus and devote all of themselves to Him.
Over the course of this Learning Group, we’ll talk through what gospel centered parenting looks like. We’ll look at our own hearts and our dependence on God to equip us as parents, as well as talk through some practicals on parenting in a way that daily points our kids back to Jesus and their need for him.
Whether you’re just starting out in the journey or parenting, or several years in, this is going to be a great 6 weeks together, and we want to encourage you to come join us this Summer for our Parenting Learning Group.
This group will be led by Eric and Stephanie Fuentes and will meet on Monday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
This Learning Group is in place for our singles only.
Whatever your circumstance, the single life can be marked by loneliness, the deep desire for relationship, some heavy temptations and even questions about your purpose in the body of Christ.
Over these six weeks we’ll explore the theology of singleness, what God has to say about the value and gift of singleness, as well as some spiritual and practical implications on this topic. The goal of this course is to help equip you to take hold of the unique opportunities that singleness provides so that you can live out the role God has called you to as a part of his church.
We would love to have you join us as we tackle the difficulties as well as celebrate the beauty of single life.
This group will be lead by Nate and Aubyn Miller and will meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
Whether you’re just beginning a relationship with Jesus or you’ve been a follower of Jesus for a long time, many of us have a hard time translating the truths we believe in our mind, to the reality of our everyday life. Given our tendency to wander away from God, we need both encouragement and tools to keep the gospel at the center of our actions in the everyday stuff of our lives.
This 6 week Learning Group will go through the Saturate Field Guide, which offers an all-of-life approach to being disciples who make disciples of Jesus. The questions, activities, prayers, and exercises will prompt you to do exactly that—put your thoughts and theology into hands-on practice. Each week will build on the last, aligning our hearts with the will of God, examining our core identity beliefs, and launching us into mission.
Come join us, as we make much of Jesus and highlight the Good News of his Life, Death and Resurrection together!
This group will be lead by Chris and Courtney Nagel and will meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
This Learning Group is an opportunity to learn how to meaningfully connect with God through reading the Bible. The goal is to foster the discipline in our lives of reading the Bible everyday so that we can know God, hear from Him, and be transformed by Him.
As a class we’ll tackle the obstacles many of us face to understanding God’s word and applying it to our lives, and each week you’ll have the opportunity to dive into God’s word for yourself and put into practice what we learn in class.
We can’t wait for this group to get started and invite you to join us as we learn, grow deeper and walk closer with Jesus this summer!
This group will be lead by Eric and Stephanie Fuentes and will meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
This spiritual growth Learning Group is in place to help us apply practical, Biblical truths that lead to healing and care for our souls.
We will explore our identity in Christ, repentance from destructive life patterns, forgiveness, healing wounds, and overcoming fears.
Join us as we venture into the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit while discovering ourselves in true community as God moves our lives towards lasting transformation, freedom, and a healthy soul.
This group will be lead by Chris and Ashlee Mayfield and will meet on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 pm.
No matter where you are in your Christian walk, prayer is a vital and integral part, and it’s an area that we can all continually work on and grow in. During these 6 weeks together we’ll dive into the importance of prayer, and talk through topics like praising and worshiping God, intersession, dealing with the realities and challenges of unanswered prayer, and more.
We aren’t made to go through life feeling distant and disconnected from God and others, and prayer is at the center of being in daily relationship with God, as well as sharing our burdens and joys with each other as we do life with the people around us.
Come join us as we seek to grow in our knowledge, talk through potential challenges, and deepen our prayer lives as individuals and together as a community.
