We will all kick off the fall together with an exciting book that explores God through the eyes of Jesus. Today so many ideas float around about God: who He is and how He works in our lives. These ideas form not only who we are, but how we live in relationship to God and others. We will engage in conversation with one another as we explore the stories that Jesus lived by as we ground ourselves once more in Him, and the Truth as revealed in Jesus about God and the Kingdom He proclaimed. Our study will equip us to engage the world, its notions about God, and the ways we can help guide others to the Truth. Beyond our conversations once a week, we will also have a preaching series this fall. In this series, The Good and Beautiful God, we will further unpack these truths.
Amidst our crazy schedules and lives, one thing that excites me is the easy and approachable devotional practices that will emerge from our studies as well. It can be difficult to know where to begin in spending time with the Lord, let alone setting apart time for it! Part of the focus of our Growth Groups involves some practical ways to do just that. As we do so together, I hope we will encourage and share with one another what we discover.
Pencil ‘Growth Groups’ into your fall calendar, as I believe they will live up to their name. For months I have been praying about these groups to be a time that we may all grow closer to the Lord in the year to come. Keep an eye on this space for sign ups soon!
