This week we will be continuing our sermon series, Better Together, where we will be looking at…
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, finances, how to study your 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.
Spring 2019 Groups:
The Recovery Group will be led by Eric and Stephanie Fuentes, and will meet on Monday nights from 7:00-9:00 pm at the OneLife Building. This group is for those working through addiction and repetitive sin. During the group we will connect the truths of the gospel to our everyday struggles so that every person in need can rejoice in the transformative grace of Jesus no matter their circumstance. This group runs for 15 weeks starting on February 11, and will work through the book STEPS (available for $15 at the Next Step Table or by clicking here). Childcare is not provided. To register, you click here, or you can feel free to ask questions or get involved by emailing Eric Fuentes at [email protected]
Biblical Theology Course:
The Biblical Theology Course will be led by Chris Nagel and Nate Miller, and is an in depth study of all of Scripture over a one year commitment, designed to take the deep truths of the gospel to the depths of our hearts. The course kick-off meeting will be on Sunday, February 17 from 1:30 – 3:00pm, and weekly meetings will continue afterward on either Monday Mornings from 7:00 – 8:30 am or Thursday mornings from 6:30 – 8:00 am. at the OneLife Building. This group requires a commitment of 2 hours per week of homework, some writing assignments (1-2 paragraphs), a 1 year commitment, and high value of attendance, preparation for each week, and participation in discussion. There is no book to purchase up front, but there is a cost of $25 to cover the cost of all printed materials throughout the course. You can register for the course by clicking here.
