Adult Discipleship & Small Groups

We are a group of people who love Jesus and want to love Him more tomorrow than we do today. For that reason, we meet together in small and large groups regularly to study the Scriptures and strengthen our discipleship.

Beginning September 8 through November 24

The Life of Joseph: Lessons of God’s Leading and Care Room (201) Of all of Jacob’s sons The Spirit chose to tell us most about Joseph. Pride, humility, temptation, holiness, waiting, expectation, patience, and exaltation are all described from his life. And behind it all is God’s sovereignty, faithfulness to the Covenant, working in unexpected ways, and foretelling the Messiah. The text is the book of Genesis. The guide is a book View from the Topwhich opens with this prayer: “Father, I know that all my life is portioned out for me; the changes that are sure to come I do not fear to see.” That statement of faith is what this teaching fellowship will further develop and strengthen in your life. Taught by Michael Anderson, Wayne Dymacek, and Lewis Lovett

The Right and Wrong of True Spirituality (Room 202) Everybody wants to experience God in their lives but how do you know that you are experiencing Him and not self-deception or the deception of counterfeit spirituality? This Teaching Fellowship examines the unreliable and then the reliable signs of true spirituality. The difference it will make for you is that it will give you a true and faithful confidence by exposing the areas of your life where you are building on sand and not the bedrock. Taught by Aaron Bruce, Curt Wilbur, and Lucas Morel

Paul and His Prayers (Room 204) Paul’s prayers are not just to be enjoyed but are profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness. In short, they change our hearts and minds. They adjust our perspective and priorities encouraging us to recognize grace, glory, mercy, and God’s expansive vision for us, our lives, and our ministry together. This Teaching Fellowship is an invitation to Spiritual reformation. Taught by Russell Williams, Greg Shear, and Mark Coddington

Life Explored (Room 203) This Teaching Fellowship is training for evangelism in your neighborhood. The class consists of material that we can be used in home studies or other small group contexts. For each class, we will look at the material and discuss it and how best to use it in our ministry. The material is set up for an 8 week study for the extra four weeks of the semester, we will scatter time for discussion, prayer, and mutual encouragement towards this ministry opportunity. Taught by Chad Danner and Paul Carter
