Life Groups

One of our values here at The Word Church is to build healthy relationships and we believe it is important for everyone to discover a place where they can connect and grow. We were never created to “do life” alone and Life Groups exist for individuals to build and develop as a community, which is an important part of maintaining a healthy Christian walk.

Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

In the words of our Worship Leader, Shamira. “Harvey hit our building but it didn’t hit our church.” We are stronger than ever, however, the after effect shifted us in numerous ways. Though we still have a place to worship on Sundays we lost the opportunity to have our traditional mid-week service. But this is where Life Groups come in.

We believe Life Groups are one of the best places to foster significant relationships and growth with God and each other. They provide a great way to connect with a smaller group of people that are brought together by topics/interests, activities, and fellowship. Life Groups are a safe place to be known, encouraged, celebrated, and challenged. The format and atmosphere of each Life Group will be different depending on the leaders and the people in the group, but they all exist to help people connect with each other and with God.

No matter your age or interest, whether you are looking for an accountability group, Bible study, learning Christian basics, financial wisdom and more– In 2019 there will be a group that’s perfect for you!  See the exciting new Life Groups set to launch this June listed below and consider selecting the one that fits you the best!  We can’t wait to do LIFE with you!

 

What's In Your Bible?

What’s In Your Bible?                               Pastor J, WORD University Instructor     Wednesdays @ 7:13 PM              (Beginning Wednesday, March 6)

The most difficult questions in life are answered in the Bible. How to have a successful marriage, how to be a great parent, how to forgive, even how to select friends are all found in the Bible. Matter of fact, the key to total life transformation is found, you guessed it, in your Bible. However, the thought of reading the Bible let alone studying the Bible can be a daunting task for new believer as well as a “seasoned” believer. In this simple, hands on 6-week Life Group, Pastor J aims to offer the attendee 6 unique yet equally effective Bible study methods to help you explore biblical truths, apply them to your life, and grow as a disciple. “What’s In Your Bible” will challenge you to develop a customized, personal approach to exploring and studying the riches of God’s Word for yourself.

Kingdom Woman (The R.E.A.L. Women's Ministry Life Group)

Kingdom Woman: Embracing Your Purpose, Power, and Possibilities

Every 1st Saturday of the Month @ 11:00 AM   (Beginning Saturday,  March 2)

A kingdom woman gives the devil as much reason to fear as a kingdom man. She lives confidently in the knowledge that Christ died and rose for her so that she can experience the significance of the destiny to which she has been called.

In Kingdom Woman, Tony Evans and his daughter, Chrystal Evans Hurst, remind women of their calling from God to be free, delivered, healed, and hopeful. The authors bring insight that encourages women to correct distorted perceptions and understand who they really are in Christ—never settling for less when connected with the One who gives them hope. All believers are covered by God’s covenant with Abraham. Evans and Hurst want women to know these rights and confidently claim and live by them. The new covenant offers more than a life of mediocrity. A kingdom woman is called and empowered to live a life of victory through Christ!

The End of Me

Minister Brandee Mack, Life Group Leader           

Wednesdays @ 7:03 PM (6-week study, beginning Wednesday, March 6)

Have you ever come to the end of yourself? Maybe it was that day when your life changed forever. The day that your house was foreclosed on, you discovered your spouse was having an affair, or you were told you only had months to live. In those moments, all the plans, dreams and ambitions you had for yourself came to a crashing halt. And you discover that all you have left is Jesus.

In The End of Me, Kyle Idleman explores these difficult moments by unpacking the many counter-intuitive truths, including: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles. Because only when you come to the end of yourself will you begin to be transformed into the whole, blessed person God made you to be.

If you are ready to be used by God in significant ways, this is the class for you!  CLICK HERE
