Growth Groups [Coming Fall 2018]
Aside from the Bible, John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress is the most published book in the English language.
Bunyan challenged readers not to be casual about his story but to study and meditate on the truths presented. He asked, What if my gold is wrapped up in ore? With this in mind, Cheryl Ford has written The Pilgrims Progress Discipleship Course for individuals and groups. Through this course, gold nuggets wrapped in ore will be dug out, and you will go deeper with God. In fact, you will be immeasurably enriched in your Christian pilgrimage.
Even the most mature believers face dark nights of the soul. During those times, God feels distant, His Word dry, and the vibrant intimacy we knew before seems absent leaving us wondering, “Where is the Lord in this?” In Psalm 119, pastor Matt Chandler aims to introduce viewers to the words of King David who experienced similar seasons of life. Serving as the anchor for the study, Psalm 119 demonstrates the power of God's Word in the lives of believers and its ability to provide a warm blanket for the soul.
Acts is the only biblical book that chronicles the history of the church immediately after Jesus’s ascension. As such, it provides us with a valuable account of how the church was able to grow and spread out from Jerusalem into the rest of the Roman Empire. In only three decades, a small group of frightened believers in Jerusalem transformed into an empire-wide movement of people who had committed their lives to Jesus Christ, ending on a high note with Paul on the verge of taking the gospel to the highest government official in the land—the Emperor of Rome.
