The Community Fellowship Group seeks to bring together believers of all ages and in different places in their walk with the Lord. The goal is to build a community of diverse believers who invest in each others' lives, encourage discipleship and sacrificial service to one another, and to spur one another in love and devotion to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Below you will see the signup for the different electives offered which will start on August 14, 2022. Each elective will run for 16 total weeks. The electives will meet for 4 straight weeks. On the 5th week, we will meet back as one large group in the gym for fellowship and discussion. This 4 on /1 off schedule will continue for the full 16 weeks for each elective followed by a prayer and praise meeting. We hope and pray these topics will be both edifying and faith-affirming for you and your families as we seek to create a more unified body of believers whose goal is to bring all glory and honor to our Great God and Savior.
Biblical Counseling Issues - (Jack Jenkins & Mike Mitchell)
In Romans 15:14, the Apostle Paul encouraged the church saying, “And concerning you my brethren, I myself also am convinced that you yourselves are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge and able to admonish one another.” As believers in Christ, we have the privilege and the responsibility to care for one another. The idea of “admonishing” one another is a comprehensive term for counseling. Unfortunately, most Christians think that biblical counseling is only for the “professionals”. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Paul clearly states that it is the duty and responsibility of every believer to be able to advise, encourage, and strengthen believers. Not sure you know how? Then come to our class on Biblical Counseling Issues! We’ll be covering a wide range of issues, which will be listed on the church website! Not only will this class help you in your personal walk with the Lord, but it will also help you to help others as they contend with issues in their lives.
Parenting Class: Biblical Principles for Instructing & Shepherding the Hearts of our Children - (Robert Fraire and Ben Kreloff)
The biblical family is under assault by our culture. Our culture wants to influence and raise your child to live for themselves with a complete disregard for God and His standards. But God has made clear in His Word that parents have the responsibility before God to raise up their children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Parents have an incredible call and responsibility to point their children to hope in Jesus. At times this task feels overwhelming. At times we feel like we are a failure. But we are called to persevere as parents in our obedience to the responsibilities God has given us. In our class, we will be looking at biblical principles in parenting our children. This parenting class will be geared for parents of toddlers to teenagers. The topics we will look at include shepherding the heart of your child, disciplining your child, discipling your child’s heart, social media challenges, dangers of child centered parenting, addressing the heart issues for their actions and ways to consistently point our kids to the hope of the Gospel.
Spiritual Disciplines: Growing in Godliness - (Spencer Heckman and Spencer King)
The purpose of this class is to explore the crucial ways in which we grow in godliness. The Bible says of His elect that “those whom He foreknew He predestined to be conformed into His image.” (Rom 8:29). However, often we wonder “when is it that we will be conformed into His image, when will we finally grow in godliness??” The answer is through spiritual discipline. These ‘disciplines are those practices found in Scripture that promote spiritual growth among believers. They are habits of devotion; habits of experiential Christianity that have been practiced by God’s people since biblical times’ (Whitney). Join us as we dive into the spiritual disciplines where with the right motives, we will find the path to godly living.”
