Bible Studies & Discipleship Groups: Fall 2015
A group of women getting together to share stories and friendship with warm
drinks and treats on Thursday evenings at 7:30pm. We will be choosing a
book together after we have had a chance to meet and discuss topics of interest
as a group. Past books have focused on missions and social justice as well as
what it looks like to be a woman seeking Jesus today. If you want to journey a
little deeper into God’s love through community, we’d love to have you join us!
If you are interested, please contact .
Letters from a Skeptic: This
book chronicles the journey of a father and son as they explore the hard
questions of life, God and the intersection of the two. During this journey, the father and son hash
through such topics as why the world is so full of suffering; why an
all-powerful God needs prayer; how you can believe in someone who rose from the
dead; and how another man's death can pardon others. If you want to probe these tough questions,
join this group! Contact for more
information on meeting time and location.
Renting Lacy: The average
age of entry into prostitution in America is 13 years old. Forced into a life
they never chose, manipulated, abused and tortured at the hands of the pimps
who control them, our country's children are sold on the streets, on the
internet and at truck stops across America every night. They aren’t bad kids
who made bad choices. They are victims of child sex trafficking. Author Linda
Smith brings to life characters based on real stories and interviews with teen
survivors. This study will be taking a look at the harsh subject of human
trafficking and how to be in conversation about interrupting the cycle. For
more information, contact .
Spoken For: Embracing Who You are and Whose You Are (Women’s
study): We will be exploring the idea of a God that is relentlessly
pursuing each of us, and has made His intentions very clear through His word.
He wants you to be His forever. Spoken For, speaks to what it means to belong
to Christ, who you are in Christ, and what it’s like to live out God’s
unfolding love story. You are not up for grabs, you are spoken for.

When Things Fall Apart: Bible Study on the Book of Job with
Professor Matt Henry: Dead children, callous friends, sea monsters, Satan,
waiting for God, and then wishing He hadn’t shown up. This semester we will
wrestle with the Book of Job. This will be an in-depth look at the life
and struggle of someone who represents himself, the biblical exile of Israel,
and everyone who has ever asked “why do bad things happen to good people,” “why
do good things happen to bad people,” and “why me?” We will explore what it
means to question God about suffering, to express grief and anger at our
situations, and to (maybe) find peace even when we don’t find answers. Monday
nights from 4-5:15 pm in The Underground. All are welcome. Contact Professor
for more information.
Dig Deeper: Every
Monday we meet to read, discuss, and dig deeper into the books of
Timothy. Striving to grow closer to the Lord as a group, we
reflect on these passages and share our thoughts and stories.
We use Paul's words to further our efforts
of discipline and faith, encouraging each other along the way! We
hope you join us Mondays @ 7:00pm in 5th floor Young lounge. All are
welcome. Come check it out! Contact either
with any questions.
Gift of Creativity: Gather with
fellow musicians and artists to talk about how we worship God through artistic
expression and creativity. Contact for more information.
