Life Groups

  

 

WHAT ARE LIFE GROUPS?

Life Groups are a small group of people who get together each week in a relaxed, informal and caring enviroment. 

Each Life Group spends time in fellowship, prayer, encouragment and Bible study.

 

WHAT ARE GROUP LINKS?

Group Link is an event that takes place a few weeks before the start of each Life Group session.  It's a continental breakfast that gives you the opportunity to learn about Life Groups and meet other people who are interested.  During the breakfast, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, meet the Life Group leaders and learn about each study.  Registration for Life Groups starts during the GROUP LINK. 

 

WHY ATTEND A LIFE GROUP?

Real fellowship as seen in the New Testament is more than simply socializing with other Christians or greeting them in services of the church.  Real fellowship is the sharing of the believer’s life as a Christian with other believers. 

 The purpose of our Life Groups are to cultivate a Christian community of caring people by:

  • Connecting with God through Bible study and prayer
  • Encouraging one another to stay in step with God
  • Cultivating relationships in which love is paramount
  • Encouraging one another through regularly praying for each other
  • Helping one another by ministering in specific, practical ways

WHAT ARE YOU AFRAID OF?  

David Jeremiah dives into the topic of FEAR.  What is stealing your joy and destroying your HOPE?  What is robbing you of sleep night after night?  What keeps you from living by faith and being a risk taker?  What keeps you from giving your life wholly to a loving God who wants nothing but the best for you? This 10 week study will lead you to identify what you are afraid of and the sources of their fears.  It will also lead you to learn and apply biblical principles that help you to respond to fear.

Book Cost: $10

HABAKKUK 
The book of Habakkuk is the eighth book of the 12 minor prophets of the Bible.  The prophet Habakkuk is generally believed to have written his book in the mid-to-late 7th century BC, not long before the Babylonians’ siege and capture of Jerusalem in 586 BC. The major theme of Habakkuk is trying to grow from a faith of perplexity and doubt to the height of absolute trust in God.  It consists of three chapters and is neatly divided into three different genres.

AMOS

Amos is often called a prophet of doom.  And when you read his prophecy, that nickname seems to fit.  On the surface, his message doesn’t sound like a happy formula for the good life.  However, every condemnation he declares serves as an invitation, a call to “seek (God) and live” (Amos5:4).  This kind of living brings peace and true prosperity for us and those around us.  Amos promotes the God life, and the "GOD LIFE is the GOOD LIFE!"

Book Cost: $20
