Life Groups

This Fall we will have two exciting Sunday Night Life Groups. Groups will meet at church each Sunday evening from 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm. There will be life groups available for both children (nursery-pre-school & kintergarden through 5th grade) and youth (6th -12th grades).

EVANGELISM


Evangelism isn’t an area of the Christian life where we need to be told we should do it. Almost all of us already know that. And yet few of us are joyfully committed to a lifestyle of obeying this clear command. During this study we will try to grow in two main ways concerning evangelism. First, we want to develop a rich theological framework for properly understand evangelism. Second, we then want to passionately pursue evangelistic obedience as a daily way of life.

Dates:  September 14 – December 7
Time:  6:00pm – 7:30 pm
Location:  Church building
Cost:  $12.00

SUFFERING

Suffering . . . It is the one of life’s few inevitabilities. We never go out looking for it, but suffering always finds us. Living in a fallen world means that suffering is unavoidable. In fact, Jesus promised that His followers would experience suffering. It is essential that we think rightly about God and suffering if we are to endure it faithfully. During this study we want to see biblical truths: (1) God is sovereign over all things, including suffering; (2) God has good purposes for His people’s sufferings; and (3) God gives sustaining grace during suffering.
