Doing Community: Spiritual Practices for Life with Others

Practices are at the heart of gospel communities; they are the ordinary and daily things people do together. We usually don’t notice these practices when they are functioning well, but we sure know when they have failed. Then life with people becomes frustrating and trying! Join us in learning and experiencing some of the spiritual practices that sustain and cultivate community: hospitality, truth-telling, promise-keeping, gratitude, service and purpose, and see how God can make community deeply compelling once again.

Transformation Through Scripture-Focused Prayer

We all desire a change in our “prayer life”. One way to make that change is to focus our minds and hearts on the awesomeness of the Lord God as revealed in Scripture.

By weaving God’s Word into the tapestry of our prayers and allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us in applying God’s Word to our specific situations our prayer life will be revitalized.

Armor of God by Priscilla Shirer

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny. But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you're tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

Chase: Chasing after the Heart of God by Jennie Allen

God is invisible. Yet He is the only thing we can chase that won’t leave us feeling empty. God has carved out a space in each of us that only He can fill. So whether you are running from God or working your tail off to please Him, David’s journey will challenge your view of God. Chase explores the events that defined David’s life and the Psalms that flowed out of those experiences. Through David’s example we’ll discover what God really wants from us.

No Other Gods by Kelly Minter

Often, idols are obvious—money, power, fame. But subtler idols can sometimes take the form of sweet loved ones, Instagramable interiors, and busy seasons of ministry. But if your heart is prioritizing any of those pursuits before God, they are taking up space meant for Him alone. In this 8-session study, learn to identify the functional gods you are serving daily and the lies they tell. Only when you learn to dethrone modern-day idols can you pursue a deeper, more meaningful relationship with Jesus.

Numbers by Melissa Spoelstra

Something in us aches for more—more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, and faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it. Before long complaining and comparing accompany our desire for more, yet we’re not any closer to filling the ache inside. God offers us another way. In this study of the Book of Numbers, we’ll find a group of people that wandered in the desert for forty years, unable to enter the Promised Land because of their complaining, grumbling, and lack of faith. The New Testament tells us that their story was written to warn us.

The Master’s Mind by Lance Hahn

NOTE: Note this class is not taught by Pastor Lance but based on his book
If what we think determines who we are, then why are so many of us insecure, depressed, and confused? This is not the condition God has in mind for us. In fact, the Master’s overwhelming desire is to see us full of hope, strength, peace, joy, and love. So where do we go wrong? What is the disconnect? How do we bridge the gap and overcome all the negativity we encounter?

Precepts: Isaiah Part 1 by Kay Arthur

Isaiah is the crown jewel of Old Testament prophets, a book that strikes awe in the heart of its reader, especially when it’s poetry is read in the Hebrew. Prophecies from Isaiah are mentioned in twenty-two places in the New Testament. The words of Isaiah were often found on the lips of the Christ, the Messiah prophesied in Isaiah. If Jesus, God incarnate, honored this grand and glorious book so highly, then you and I ought to do the same. In Isaiah Part 1, we'll meet the Holy One of Israel, and learn how He deals with those who claim Him as God but don't honor Him as God in the way that they live. And we'll find the destiny of nations, the future of all mankind ... including ours.

Badge Brides studying Proven by Jennie Allen

NOTE: This is a bible study for the wives behind the badge and specifically aimed at supporting the unique challenges law enforcement families and marriages encounter. Because of the sensitive nature of their conversations, we respectfully request ONLY active duty, sworn peace officers' wives register.
Too many of us walk through life feeling as if we don't measure up. We always seem to thirst for more. We think if we could only work harder or be better, we could be enough. But the truth is, we will never be enough. And thankfully, we don't have to be. In this 8-session study, Jennie Allen walks through key passages in the Book of John to demonstrate how only Jesus is enough. We don't have to prove anything because Jesus has already proven everything. Discover how our thirsty hearts can only be quenched by the Living Water.

Moms’ Group studying Restless by Jennie Allen

Jennie Allen explores the important question: "Do I matter?" And she asks, "We live with lots of things, lots of people, but do we live for something?" It is possible to waste our lives. We don't want to live life feeling empty, numb, or bored. So God stirs a restlessness in our being that won't go away. Using the story of Joseph, Jennie explains how his suffering, gifts, story, and relationships fit into the greater story of God—and how your story can do the same. She also introduces Threads—a tool to help you see your own personal story and to uncover and understand the raw materials God has given you to use for His glory and purpose.
