Classes, programs,

and events

Discipleship classes, programs and events, are intended to be stepping stones for people on the journey toward or in the with-God life.  The Bible studies, book studies and other classes that we offer all collectively help us to “grow to become in every respect the mature body of Him who is the head, that is, Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).

All-Church Study:  My One Word

 

Our world has gone through a lot lately. A lot of physical distancing, division, loneliness, and anxiety. And while the world will provide a number of quick fixes for what ails us, we believe that Jesus Christ outfitting the church to influence the world is our one true lasting hope. If we want to see our nation and world healed, it starts with us taking extra steps to unite with one another and grow together.

So, starting in January, we are embarking on an all-church study using the book, My One Word, by Mike Ashcraft and Rachel Olsen. The book challenges us to drop our lists of resolutions for the new year and instead focus on just one word – whatever word God has given us. Then throughout the year we can live according to our word and encourage others to as well.

There is an added bonus to this study as well. If you are not currently part of a small group but are curious what that experience is like, you can sign up to be part of a group for just 4 weeks while we do this study. After that, you can decide to stay together as a group or find another practice of fellowship.

 

If you would like to be a part of this all-church study, please CLICK HERE 

Note: The book ordering deadline has passed.  However, there are a limited number of books available through the church office - one per family. Once they are gone, if you are still in need of a book we recommend that you purchase or download a copy of My One Word from your favorite local or online book seller or click here for some options.  If you are unable to find your own copy of the book, or if you have questions about the study, contact Lori at lorib@christmemorial.org.


The eight groups below are participating in the church-wide study and

would be happy to have you join them.  For more information or for help
