Community Groups

 

Community: It’s one thing people need and a little tougher to practice.  It’s our conviction that living for Jesus requires encouragement and help along the way.  We believe small groups are an essential part of helping us grow and stay connected.  We invite you to join in and do life together!

Aged To Perfection!      Wes & Amanda Gunn

Tuesdays 6 PM (begins with finger foods then discussion)  Begins June 8. Emerald Mountain

We are inviting all adults 50 & up for a summer of fellowship and growth together!  Each week we’ll be tackling a different portion of scripture to challenge and encourage one another with.  A healthy church needs the generation who has some experience and wisdom to share.  We’ll focus on how those in the second half of life aren’t done with God’s kingdom work.  We’ll be sure to have some fun along the way!


1 & 2 Peter (Ladies):  Elisabeth Owen

Tuesdays 9 AM at Redland Hills.  Begins June 15

We will be doing an inductive Bible study (seeking the meaning in the original context and applying it to everyday life today) of the books of 1 & 2 Peter!  Cultural shifts are happening so rapidly, it’s easy to feel disoriented in our own society, within our churches, and even with God. Although the details were different, the Apostle Peter wrote to people facing similar challenges. He sent a couple of letters to Christians from across five diverse regions who were experiencing dizzying cultural disorientation. His letters are saturated in wisdom for times like ours. Perhaps the most important piece is this: cultural disorientation is an opportunity to re-center hope on Christ.   All materials will be provided.  Cost of workbook is $5.00 There will be a zoom option available for ladies that cannot make it in person.

Kids Ministry  (4th-6th):   Elisabeth Owen

Wednesdays 6:30 PM    In person (Navigate Room)  

We will gather at the building  to creatively explore our faith while diving into God’s word with our friends. We sing, dance, use our imaginations and even challenge each other to go beyond our comfort zones. But don’t worry, if you’re not in the building, let us know and we’ll host you online, , we won’t single you out; simply join in on the fun, sit awhile and soak in the fellowship. We would love to see you at our next exploration.  For those in person, wear your mask, but don’t dim your joy.
