Fruitful Conversations

December 4 & 11 (date changed)

Wednesday, 6:00-7:30

Red Brick Building, lower level room 20

How can Christians have difficult but important conversations as a church body? Our broader culture is polarized on a whole host of issues, and too often that polarization and division carries over into the church. The 2-part "Fruitful Conversations" series aims to equip Christians with the biblical foundations and practical tools we need to carry on conversations

that are filled with grace and truth.

This year we are offering an opportunity for new small groups to form.  If you have been looking for a small group opportunity this might be a good fit for you to meet with others also looking for a small group.  The following studies will be offered:

The Resolving Everyday Conflict small group Bible study is an eight-week DVD and discussion study with workbook and 30 minutes of preparation/reflection time between sessions that unpacks the amazing things the Bible has to say about conflict and relationships in a fun and non-threatening way. Facilitated by Pastor Bill Lindner and limited to 10 participants in this group. Would consider starting additional small groups at different times as well.   Here is a video link with more information.  For questions on the small group study, please contact Pastor Bill.  

Engage is a new kind of small group Bible study for Christians of all shapes, states and sizes that combines a provocative Bible study, group interaction and spiritual formation. After an intro session, there will be 6 study/interactions on different encounters with Jesus in the Gospels.
