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 gained bigger space at Dekaney High School 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 2018 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? Pastor J, Life Group Leader Wednesdays @ 7:13 PM (Beginning Wednesday, June 20)
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.

DETOURS Brandee Nelson, WORDPowerment Life Group Leader Tuesdays @ 7:00 PM (Beginning Tuesday, June 19) Chris Loft, Iron Men Life Group Leader Thursdays @ 7:00 PM (Beginning Thursday, June 21)
The biblical account of Joseph clearly demonstrates that God is at work even when life seems to be going wrong. It depicts a young man who endured betrayal, abandonment, injustice, and confusion before understanding God’s sovereign plan to redirect him from the pit to the palace. Even today it’s easy to wonder why God would allow calamity to happen or if He’s in control at all. Whether through uncontrollable circumstances or the pain of personal relationships, everyone has experienced unforeseen changes in life. This study helps believers navigate detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will.

A Lifestyle Of Worship Maurice Mack, Life Group Leader Tuesdays @ 7:00 PM (Beginning Tuesday, June 19)
Have you ever thought to yourself…how important is worship and what role should it play in my life? Throughout the Word of God, we see worship mentioned in both the Old and New Testament in numerous ways. David dancing before the Lord, Jesus rejoicing in the Spirit and the outpouring of worship in the early church. Worship is a promise and mandate from our heavenly Father: to come to Him and meet with Him with reverence, gladness, and pleasure. Worship is the key to really know God intimately and express our appreciation to Him with praise and thanksgiving, doing so with passion, sincerity, conviction, and in respectful fear and honor. In this six-week session, we will discover and uncover the essence of what worship truly is. We will look at a combination of lessons from Dr. Richard J. Krejcir’s “Understanding Worship” and Ron Boatwright’s “Are you Worshipping God in Spirit and in Truth?”. Worship is not about pleasing people, following trends or formalities; rather, it is about pleasing Jesus Christ as LORD! So, come and let’s experience new levels towards worship. Worship = Lifestyle!
