You were designed by God to live in community. We believe we grow the most when we are in relationship to one another. Sunday worship gatherings are great, but it is difficult get to know one another on a deeper level in rows. Sitting in someone’s living room is a much better environment to grow and share. We begin new community groups three times a year.
Spring Groups: January-May
Summer Groups: June-August
Fall Groups: September-December
Spring Semester 2024 Groups
Beginning January 21
Marriage After God
Tuesday’s at 6PM, (Emerald Mountain) Begins January 23
Since the very beginning, God’s design for marriage has been for husbands and wives to be ambassadors of holy love to a hurting world. Still, too many couples stop short at happy and wonder why they feel unsatisfied. Rather than “you and me against the world,” God calls each couple to the rich and meaningful mission of “you and me for the world.” In Marriage After God, Aaron and Jennifer Smith, popular marriage bloggers at HusbandRevolution.com and UnveiledWife.com, transparently share their own journey of turning a marriage in crisis into a marriage built on Christ’s redemptive love.
Hosted and Facilitated by Rutorrestt Larsen & Jill Larsen
Wrestling with questions
Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, (Emerald Mountain) Begins January 24
If the 12 disciples, (who were eye witnesses to the miracles of Christ), found their faith shaken at times. It is certainly understandable that those who are thousands of years removed from those events may also struggle with faith or have questions. In this study, we’ll journey through Lee Strobel’s best seller, “The Case for Christ” as he put the Bible through a battery of legal and historical tests to determine if we can truly trust and have faith in The Bible.
Facilitated by Jason Blair & Tim Cronian (both former atheist)
Young Couples with Kids
Sundays 6-7pm, (Stonegate / Brookwood) Begins January 21
Come join us as we grow together in studying God’s word together! We will be studying the Fundamentals of the Faith. This is a great study for new believers and a great review for older believers. It is basic and easy to understand. The whole idea is to get a better understanding of the Bible and who God is, and this book is a great tool for obtaining that knowledge. We know that when the Holy Spirit uses His Word in peoples heart, their lives are transformed. This group is child friendly and perfect for young families.
Facilitated by Zane & Jordan Kelly and Matthew & Brooke Delk.
Men’s Bible Study & Fellowship
Wednesdays at 6:30pm, Begins January 24
EVERY MAN A WARRIOR develops the essential skills of discipleship. These skills include: Having a Quiet Time, Meditating on Scripture, Prayer, and Application of the Word. We’ll even memorize some scripture, and encourage each other as we grow together!
Facilitated by Doug Vogel and Jeff Wintle.
Daytime Ladies Bible Study
Wednesdays at 9:30am, (Emerald Mountain) Begins January 24
Having Christ as your personal Savior is only the beginning. After that, the Lord expects us to take the next steps and grow up – not just grow old! Many problems in our lives are caused by spiritual immaturity. God has given us the formula for spiritual maturity in the Epistle of James.
Through the book, Be Mature, by Warren Wiersbe, we will explore some important truths about how to learn to be patient, how to overcome temptation, how to learn to control the tongue and several other important traits of a mature Christian. It’s all in James. Come and join us for this exciting study! Facilitated by Janet Tripi.
Men’s Discipleship – discerning your calling
Tuesday Morning 5:30am, (Redland Hills Church) Begins January 23
God has a plan for your life. Some call this His specific will versus His general will. Yet, tragically, most men go their entire lives never learning what that plan and purpose is, or where they fit into the grand scheme of things or “God’s Kingdom Purposes.” In the same way that a camera lens can bring a subject into focus for clarity, the Holy Spirit can provide us with the kind of focused life that provides clarity for daily living and answers for many of life’s greatest challenges. Facilitated by Tony Tripi.
Tuesdays at 6pm, (Emerald Mountain) Begins January 23
Different from the other three gospel accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry, the Gospel of John focused on the nature of Christ and how belief in Him leads to true life. Through the first three chapters of John we learn how we’re dependent upon God to help us believe in the name of Jesus and become His children and experience a well of abundant grace that never runs dry. To this day, Jesus continues to draw followers to Himself in the same ways He drew His first disciples. Jesus became like us so that we might become like Him.
Facilitated by Bret & Sonia Devine.
Practices of OBEDIENCE
Sunday’s 5pm, (Redland Hills Church) Begins January 21.
Following Jesus requires a deepening life of prayer, and throughout history Christians have learned to pray from the Psalms. Peterson finds particular encouragement for today’s pilgrims in the Songs of Ascents (Psalms 120–134). With prophetic and pastoral wisdom, he shows how the psalms teach us to grow in worship, service, joy, work, humility, community, and blessing.
Facilitated by Margaret and Donnie Gunter
Bereaved Parent Group
Thursday’s 6:30pm, (Online) Begins February 8
Randy Alcorn brings eternity to light in 50 inspiring and thought-provoking meditations that will forever change the way you think about the spectacular new universe that awaits us: new heavens and a New Earth, where Jesus will be the cosmic center and joy will be the air we breathe―a universe free from pain and suffering, filled with unending beauty and adventure. Facilitated by Jennifer Coleman.
Ladies Testimony Meeting
Ladies you are invited to come be apart of our Testimony group. We fellowship over a brunch potluck then listen to a speaker. These meetings are designed to have a designated speaker who shares her testimony, miracle, lesson learned or lesson learning. She shares her God story or one of her God stories with the rest of us. This is a wonderful way to hear the fruits of our sisters as we glorify and exalt the Lord together. Come be encouraged with us.
