Discipleship Groups

Bible Studies & Discipleship Groups: Spring 2015

You keep using that verse: I don’t think it means what you think it means:” Exploring the content and context of often misquoted passages of scripture. Do you love Jeremiah 29:11, but have never read vs. 10? Did you tattoo “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” on your arm and think that includes smoking weed? Do you really believe the Bible says Christians aren’t supposed to judge each other because of Matthew 7 (or Tupac)? Do you only read Songs of Solomon as God’s love for the church? This semester we will tackle these passages and others. Monday nights from 4-5 pm in The Underground. All are welcome. Contact Professor Henry ( Matthew.Henry@enc.edu) for more information. 

Ragamuffin Gospel: Jesus did not come for the pretty, pious and powerful. Instead, he came for the "bedraggled, beat-up and burnt-out" ragamuffins who desperately need his grace. Dispelling the myth that you must work to receive God's gift of grace and joy, Manning, a fellow ragamuffin, reveals the true nature of a freely-given and unrelenting grace that's available to all. Drop the burden of never measuring up and revel in the comfort of a God who loves you for who you are - not for who you think you should be.Contact Jennie Williams ( ) for more information. 

Real Sex: The Naked Truth About Chastity: Lauren Winner speaks candidly to single Christians about the difficulty and the importance of sexual chastity. With nuance and wit, she talks about her own sexual journey. Never dodging tough terms like "confession" and "sin," she grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in Scripture. She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church (newsflash: however wrong it is, premarital sex can feel liberating and enjoyable!). She argues that sex is communal rather than private, personal rather than public. Contact .

The Single Woman (Women’s Study): Single (adj): Too smart, too strong, too fabulous to settle.  Mandy Hale (AKA The Single WomanTM) shares her stories, advice, and enthusiasm for living life as an empowered, confident, God-centered woman who doesn't just resign herself to being single--she enjoys it! Join Mandy and other girls on campus as you learn to embrace the singe season of life and all that God has for it. Contact Lauren Dempster ( ) for more information.

The Gift of Creativity: Gather with fellow musicians and artists to talk about how we worship God through artistic expression and creativity. Contact Jamie Brown at for more information.

Redefining Beautiful: What God Sees When God Sees You (Women’s Study): Revolve speaker Jenna Lucado has teamed up with her dad, Max Lucado, to bring girls a fresh perspective on what they need to live a life of peace, joy, and confidence. What does God see when He looks at them? And how does a girl catch that vision? Jenna reveals what is needed to give teens a look they love—a look that says they are comfortable with who they are and secure and confident. What’s the all-important accessory? Love from a father. Redefining Beautiful will change the way girls look at God, themselves, and the people around them. 

My Soul Speaks (Women’s Study): This collection of quotes is meant to serve as a guideline for how you should be living your life. This book was written with the sole purpose of trying to get girls to think about their life and then reflect by writing down their feelings on the note pages that accompany each quote. Contact for more information.

Bible on Bromfield: Pastor Jake & Rachel invite you to come over to their house every Sunday night @ 6pm at 21 Bromfield St. We’ll hang out, dive into the Bible, and eat a lot! All college-aged students are welcome, so bring a group of friends for a time to get away from campus for a few hours.

Grief Share: If you have experienced a loss in your life that would like prayer and support for, please contact us about the possibility of joining a group and we will journey together. Contact Jennie Williams ( ) for more information. 

Divorce Care: Have you experienced divorce in your family? Do you wonder how to move from broken to healthy relationships? Together we will explore letting go of guilt, pain, and anger. Discover new ways to enrich your own relationships. For more information contact Jennie Williams ( ).
