Groups are where we make our BIG CHURCH feel small.
This is where we focus on being a church family. Our large Sunday worship
gathering paired with our groups are instrumental to spiritual growth. These groups
are where we combine application of scripture through living life together in our community.

Short Term Studies

January - March 2020

Short-Term Study (Co-Ed)
Gospel Above All by J.D. Greear

The gospel isn't just an entry into the Christian faith, it is the entirety of the Christian life. This Bible study leads groups to a greater awareness and practice of gospel culture, gospel mission, gospel renewal, and gospel unity. The most pressing need for Christianity today isn't a new strategy or an updated message; it is a return to elevating the gospel above all.

Short Term Study (Co-Ed)
Praying At The Crossroads by Ken Coley 

Prayer is essential to our spiritual growth, yet few of us pray as often or as fervently as we would like. We turn to God only in moments of desperation and crisis. God wants us to turn to Him at every money of our lives.
The Bible is filled with the prayers of God's people. Many of the prayers come at a critical junctures of faith - at crossroads of decisions. Scripture shows us multiple examples of people turning to God when there is nowhere else to turn for peace, comfort, guidance, and strength. Looking to theses prayers of biblical leaders, we can learn to pray with new commitment and passion.

Short Term Study (Women)
Imago Dei by Mike Cosper

People are naturally compelled to ask questions to identity: Who am I? What am I worth? Why am I here? The answers culture offers only lead to more questions. To properly answer these questions, we need to look all the way back to the beginning - to our creation - and see that all people are made in the image of God.
