Sunday Morning Small Groups

Our students meet together in small groups at 10:45 every Sunday morning, and this is really where church begins to feel like family. The students meet with their grade level for a time of study in our awesome small group program. We study topics relevant to students, and we use a one of a kind system that rotates each grade through a different topic and teacher every 10 weeks. This way, you never hear the same thing twice, or get used to where you are. The kids love it and so do we. Below is a list of the current 10-week classes for each grade.

 

Current 10 Week Studies

These small group studies began on January 12th, 2020


 7th/8th Grade Girls: “1 Corinthians” – Lauren & Savannah

Christianity calls us to sacrifice instead of living for oneself. We have to choose one or the other—we can’t do both. The Christians in Corinth tried to live the Christian life in a worldly way. In this study, we look into the messy lives of the Corinthians and dive into Paul’s words to the conflicted church. We’ll see how the truth of the gospel and the Spirit of God can empower us to choose to follow Jesus every day of our lives.

 

7th/8th Grade Guys: “Mark” – Mr. Luke & Mr. Toxie

In this study on the Gospel of Mark, we will be looking at the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and ask: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

 


9th Grade: “Respectable Sins” – Steve & Stephanie

The Christian journey is a life of practiced godliness, but too often we overlook or minimize sins that, while corrosive and destructive to ourselves and those around us, are overshadowed by more flashy, headline-grabbing sins. In this study, we will grow in our understanding of sin and commit to a life of holiness by examining patterns of behavior we often accept as normal, rather than as violations of God’s law..


 10th Grade: “Jesus > Religion” – Scott & Kristin
This Bible study is based on Jefferson Bethke’s book “Jesus>Religion”. In this study, we will help students understand that following Jesus isn’t about rules-based religion, which only leaves you empty and unsatisfied. They will see that freedom and true joy is only found in the grace of Jesus and resting in a relationship with Him. 

11th Grade: “Creation” – Kevin & Peabody

In this 10-week class, we will look at the differences between Intelligent Design, Young Earth Creationism, Old Earth Creationism, and spontaneous organs.  We will compare the biblical account of creation and an atheistic view of spontaneous organs.  We will dive into a biology book currently used on the coast to point out the facts, from the theories and teach how to objectively read the biology book.  We will also discuss the complexity of design, scientific laws, symbiotic relationships, dinosaurs, biblical evidence for creation and much, much more!


12th Grade: “T3”- Bryan & Joel

T3 is a life-changing study that, in a very creative way, helps students see that stewardship isn’t just about tithing, but it’s about using all that God has given them – their Talents, Treasures & Time – to make a difference for His Kingdom.
