Finding God Faithful by Kelly Minter

During this Bible study we will trace the path of Joseph’s life in the Book of Genesis to observe how God’s sovereignty reigns, even in our darkest moments. Learn to recognize when God is working during periods of waiting, trust God’s plan when life doesn’t make sense, and rest in the sufficiency of His presence in every circumstance. His provision is enough, His presence is constant, and His purpose is unstoppable.

The Book of John

John 20:31 states, "But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." Let's take a fresh look at who Jesus is and how we can experience His life by studying the Gospel of John. The Gospel of John is one of four gospels in the Bible and it varies from the other three gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke, by focusing more on spiritual themes rather than historical events. Join us as we examine the Life of Christ through the eyes of the disciple whom Jesus loved.

G2 #11 | Married Couples | Wednesday | 7:00pm

We will discuss the previous Sunday’s message, dive into related scripture and challenge each other to apply it to our lives. How often do you listen and enjoy a great Sunday sermon only to forget what was said by Monday? We will be encouraging each other to be doers of the Word, not hearers only, by applying Sunday’s message and related scripture to our daily lives. Preparation is simple: be attentive and take notes during Sunday Service.

Ecclesiastes: A 12-week Study

By Justin S. Holcomb

The book of Ecclesiastes powerfully conveys the meaninglessness of life without God. The world promises fulfillment, but in the end, it cannot truly satisfy the longings of the human heart. This 12-week study helps Christians understand the necessity of fearing God in a fallen and frustrating world, pointing us to God's ultimate mission to restore creation from the curse through the power of the gospel.

Defendiendo nuestra Fe

Judas 3 dice "... pero ahora me encuentro en la necesidad de escribirles para rogarles que luchen ardientemente por la fe que una vez fue dada a los santos..."  Aprendamos a defender nuestra fe; como compartirla con familiares, amigos y compañeros de trabajo; como responder positivamente a críticas contra el Cristianismo. Hablaremos de temas como: creación y evolución; ¿Es Jesús una leyenda, un mentiroso o Dios?; ¿Somos salvos por obras o por gracia?; ¿Llevan todas las religiones al mismo Dios?; ¿Es la resurrección un fraude, una fantasía o un hecho real? Venga a estudiar la Biblia y encuentre respuestas a temas actuales en contra del Cristianismo.

G2 #18 | Women | Thursday | 7:15pm

The 21st Chapter of Luke

We will be looking closely at the 21st chapter of Luke. Jesus said many important things during this last week before his crucifixion that has been recorded in this amazing chapter. He made a surprising comment on who it was who gave the most. He answered the disciple's questions about future events such as the destruction of Jerusalem and the coming of the Son of Man in the clouds. Jesus wants us to keep our spiritual ears on and look forward with our spiritual eyes to his return. Come and join us as we study, pray, and fellowship together.

Do you struggle with prayer? So many of us do. It is challenging for most of us, in most seasons. Join us as we examine Paul's prayers for the Ephesian church to learn how ordinary Christ-followers can pray like an apostle. Paul clearly enjoyed prayer, and found it exciting to pray—and you can, too!

Psalms: Managing Our Emotions by Timothy Peck

God created us to experience emotions, yet there are still godly and ungodly ways to manage them. The Psalms express emotions clearly. And while the rest of the Bible is directed to us, most of the Psalms are directed back to God, as his people use these inspired lyrics to express their hearts to God. In this group, we will be looking at psalms to learn how to manage our emotions. In addition to building our faith, we will focus on balancing our time with fitness and friends! Participants must be comfortable hiking between 3 to 8 trail miles, beginning Saturday, September 28th.  All hikes are weather dependent. Locations of the hikes will vary.
