SMALL GROUPS


Fall Semester of Small groups is launching the week of September 29th, 2019!


Small groups have one, simple purpose: to bring people together. We believe God created us to live in relationship with others and only then can we live the full life He intends for us. Sharing life through community is part of our design, but meaningful relationships aren’t always easy to find. That’s why small groups exist—to make these life-changing relationships relevant and accessible to you.

Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes: Removing Cultural Blinders to Better Understand the Bible

The book's authors shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible by identifying nine key areas where modern Westerners have significantly different assumptions about what might be going on in a text. We will learn how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways.

Together we’ll explore God’s goodness; discover how we respond to him out of devotion, not obligation; and enjoy the freedom of becoming all he has created us to be. The book is available at ChristianBook.com or Amazon.com. Please purchase your copy in advance of the first study.
