The Fall Semester Develop Groups begin on October 2nd! Check out the following to learn more about the different classes being offered.
Many Christians have a dualistic approach to life. We have our church life and then our work life, which are pretty separate.
This track from The Gospel Coalition’s curriculum ‘Gospel Shaped Church’, is about marrying these two worlds together. It’s not just about bolting on Christian bits to my working life, but seeing that everything in my life is connected to the gospel. The Gospel is at the he
art of everything I do at work, it’s not just the answer to people’s spiritual needs at work. God created us to be workers. To till the soil, to subdue creation. To be his representatives in the world and we flourish when we work as God intended.
In this group study, discover how to not only connect Monday to Sunday, but how to put the gospel at the heart of everything we do at work.
Missional Motherhood (for women)
Sooner or later, every mother will stop and ask herself, Is this all I am?
God has instilled motherhood with meaning and purpose as part of His greater plan for humanity. Whether or not a woman has been called to traditional motherhood, she demonstrates her nurturing gifts daily through caregiving, hospitality, discipleship, teaching, raising children, and serving others. Join us in this Bible study as we look to Scripture for evidence of God’s mission for motherhood and His greater purpose for each and every woman.
Preaching and Teaching (for men)
This Develop group is a two semester training on the foundation and how-to’s of preaching and teaching in the church. Assigned readings will be from Timothy Keller’s book Preaching, described as follows:
Most Christians—including pastors—struggle to talk about their faith in a way that applies the power of the Christian gospel to change people’s lives. Timothy Keller is known for his insightful, down-to-earth sermons and talks that help people understand themselves, encounter Jesus, and apply the Bible to their lives. In this accessible guide for pastors and lay-people alike, Keller helps readers learn to present the Christian message of grace in a more engaging, passionate, and compassionate way.
