Experience Groups:

  • Promote a love of God and love of others - allowing us to grow in both head knowledge and heart knowledge resulting in lives where we listen to Jesus and follow Jesus.
  • Promote community by offering groups that change on a semester basis - allowing opportunities for our community to get to know one another in a deeper context.
  • Promote involvement by providing a specific time frame for each Experience - allowing freedom in group involvement and leadership.
  • Promote life transformation by encouraging us to be involved in each other's lives - allowing meaningful relationships in a small group context. 

WINTER EXPERIENCE GROUPS

SUNDAYS @ 9:15AM

January 6 - May 26


Keeping Your Faith in a Culture of Unbelief - Dining Room: Living out your faith is a challenge. Defending your beliefs in a world of skepticism and relativism can be even harder. What is truth? With so many different religions in the world, how do we know we are right? Is belief in God more than an emotional thought? Can faith and reason exist together or do we have to check our brains at the door to believe?

This group is designed to challenge your mind. It will help you think critically and give you a sense of confidence when you feel the need to give a reason for your faith. Join us and be challenged.  Sundays @ 9:15am.


Biblical Grief Support - Room 2:  There are many resources today available for Grief Support. One of the best is Understanding Your Grief by Dr. Alan Wolfelt. This book is based on Biblical principles. However, the Bible is alluded to, but not examined. In examining the Bible along with the Wolfelt book, one gets a richer and a more healing approach to dealing with grief. There will also be plenty of time for sharing our personal stories.

Sundays @ 9:15am.


Faith Connections Quarterly -Homeward Bound - Room 1, Philathian - Room 3, & BYKOTA - Room4, are using the quarterly as a guide. The focus this quarter is "God with Skin On". 

We will look at the birth of Jesus and snapshots from His ministry from the book of Luke. We will see that Jesus came to earth at a point in time when humanity needed to see what God looked like- to experience His presence in the flesh.  Sundays @ 9:15am. 


The Bible Project - Room 7: For so many, the Bible is used as a devotional grab bag. For others, it is an instructional manual that fell out of the sky. And sadly, for many more, it is an oppressive book of outdated rules used to control people.

The Bible Project is a non-profit animation studio that produces short-form, fully animated videos to make the biblical story accessible to everyone, everywhere. The goal of these videos is to help people read through Scripture while avoiding these common pitfalls and misunderstandings. The complex themes of the Bible are presented in a way that are real and unapologetic, but approachable.

The Bible is a divine-human book that speaks God's word to His people. We believe it ultimately points us to Jesus, who has the power to change individuals and whole communities when we let the biblical story speak for itself.

From January-May, we'll use the video-driven "Bible Project" (thebibleproject.com) to help us navigate this journey. First, we will investigate "How to Read the Bible." Then we'll look at overviews of the Old Testament, The New Testament, and the "Wisdom" books (Psalm, Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Job).  Sundays @ 9:15am.
