STUDY GROUPS



Learning to be like jesus

Study groups meet to learn more about God and the Bible all for the purpose of becoming more like Jesus. Usually a specific topic or book of the Bible is what brings these groups together. There are certainly social and communal aspects to these groups, but they have a much more structured feel. They will often include required reading and study outside the meeting times.

  • First place for health: Stronger Every day

    Facilitator:  Michelle Sator

    Cost: $80 or $20 for returning participants

    Stronger Every Day is a fascinating study about ten characters in the Bible who demonstrated physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual strength as they followed the call of God on their lives. They were ordinary men and women willing to be made strong and brave by an extraordinary God. We will study the obedience strength of Noah, the uncompromising character of Joseph, the strength of leadership in Moses, the inner strength of Deborah, and the resilience of Ruth and more. As you open yourself to the transforming truth of Scripture and share your hopes and struggles with other in FP4H, you’ll find yourself becoming the healthy child of God you are designed to be! And it’s all because our God is the God who gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak! (Isaiah 40:29 NIV)

    Have you tended to skip over or race through Leviticus as you study the Bible? It’s not one of the books we’re naturally drawn to linger in. Yet, understanding it provides a necessary and rich foundation for appreciating the big picture of scripture, especially the New Testament. What do sacrifices, priesthoods, and feasts teach us about God? How can we be holy and worship God properly? This excellent study will help you bridge the gap between the Old and New Testaments.

    Chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, targeted by grace, sons of God united in a single family, inheritors, holy, redeemed, forgiven, raised from the dead and seated with Jesus Christ in the heavenlies! How can you not study Ephesians!? Before Paul even hints at how believers should live, he lays a rock-solid foundation: who we are in Christ! If you think you’re just a cog in a machine, if you don’t know your true identity, then this study is for you.


    Praise God for what He planned in eternity past and is waiting to reveal to you now . . . through the study of His Word. Learn who and what you are in Christ and you’ll want to walk God’s ways the rest of your life!
