All are welcome to “Come and See” as our group takes a closer look at The Chosen.  If you have never heard of The Chosen, it is the first ever multi-season tv show about Jesus.  No matter where you are in your journey with Jesus Christ, The Chosen has something to offer.  Each group meeting we will watch one episode, beginning with Season 1.  After viewing the episode, we will take a look at scripture references, then discuss and reflect on what we saw.  This will be an informal, fun group.  If you’re interested, please join us!  And bring a friend!

The Iron Club (Proverbs 27:17)

As Iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.  (Proverbs 27:17)

We are a motley bunch of adults.  Some of us still have small children in the house, some of us still have adult children living in the house (sigh), some of us are grandparents (awesome)!  So, as you can see, just about anybody would be a good fit in our group.  We like to meet on Sunday after the first service because it fits into our schedule and those with kids are able to drop them off at First Kids.

UnDistracted

Have you ever read any of Bob Goff’s books?  His book “Everybody Always” was our favorite but we recently listened to his new book, “Undistracted”.  What Bob talks about in this book is how we can pull back from all the busyness, the craziness in our lives, because we can find purpose if we’re undistracted.    Distraction can separate you from people.  You can look like you’re present, but you really aren’t.  In our life group, we’re going to be watching the “Undistracted” videos and using a study guide.  We’ll talk about the stuff that really matters, while pushing the distractions aside.

We’ll follow the study part with eating a meal together!  Food is always good!  Couples and singles are welcome to join us!  Our first meeting will be on May 22nd, at 4 pm.

Discerning The Voice Of God

On Thursday, January 27, we will start the study, Discerning The Voice of God by Priscilla Shirer.  Through 7 sessions, discover the root to clear and daily communication with God – humble obedience. Learn how surrender unlocks His many blessings intended for us, centers us in His will, and helps us discern His voice in everyday life.  For each session, there are 5 days of reading/homework to be completed over the month prior to the next meeting (totally do-able girls!).  I think this study is going to be SO good!  We will meet on the 4th Thursday of the month, at 6 pm, at my home in DeMotte and will be finishing up this study in July.

Link included for purchasing the workbook that goes along with this study.

Forged Men’s Group

Welcome!  We try to focus our group on biblical ways to become a more Godly man, and how we can become better providers and leaders for our families and others around us.  The word “Forged” comes from Proverbs 27:17 — “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend”.  Our average night usually consists of sharing a meal, then watching a video series from RightNow Media.  We then have a discussion about the topics that were covered in the video.  Our group is mainly outdoorsy young men ages 25-35, but we do have some members much younger and older.  Unfortunately we do not currently have any form of childcare.  Thank you for taking a look at our group.  We are always welcoming and thankful for new members.
