On Sunday mornings, we encourage you to join us at 9 a.m. for an opportunity to study God's Word in one of our Sunday Morning Bible Study groups that meet on the Gateway campus. Groups are available for the entire family, with options for all ages.

BIBLE STUDY GROUPS FOR ADULTS

We offer four Sunday morning Bible study groups for adults. Each group provides you with an opportunity to study the Word of God, discuss how the Word of God changes our lives, pray together, and fellowship. Each group studies a particular topic, and includes people of all different ages and walks of life in it. These four groups all meet in the gym building (the building to right as you look at the front of the campus). The current groups are:

The Gospel in a Broken World

The Gospel in a Broken World  /  Gym building - Room 1
Teachers:  Jeff Moody and Jason Watson

When we think of discipleship or walking with Christ, we tend to think of to-do lists and steps that we can take to achieve some level of godliness. Unfortunately, these lists become overwhelming, leading us to despair or self-righteousness. This class focuses on the messy and weird reality of following Christ in a broken world plagued with sin - most importantly our own. It is a discussion based class where we hope to share life together and spur each other on following Christ and turning away from the temptations of the world. No one expects you to have it together; we are all a mess, but we can be a mess together and walk through life with Christ and each other.

Communication & Conflict Resolution  Gym building - Room 2
Teachers:  Greg Teal and Preston Adams (pastoral assistant)

Two areas of life that constantly require our attention are communication and conflict resolution.   We will see from scripture that from God's perspective, good communication is sending a message that is holy, purposeful, clear, and timely. We begin by setting the foundation that first and foremost, communication is a heart issue.  We then will explore other foundational principles that enable and enhance good communication that ultimately honors God and blesses others.  We then explore conflict from a biblical perspective to include where it comes from,  how we might avoid it, and finally, how to resolve conflict as it emerges.  Whether you are married or single, old or young, someone who has walked with God only a short time or most of your lifetime, you will benefit from once again seeing God's power and grace on display as we look at how to cultivate God-honoring communication and conflict resolution. 

Gospel of Mark

Gospel of Mark / Gym building - Room 3
Teacher:  CJ Falcione (Associate Pastor) and Mike Norris

Each class begins with a time of sharing "glory stories", testifying to God's goodness and work in our lives the past week. Then we dive into God's Word, and do a verse by verse study of Mark's gospel. The class is encouraged to share and ask questions throughout the study as the Lord reveals His Word to us. Come and join us.

The Pursuit of God / Gym building - Room 4
Teacher:  Bill Hurley (elder), William Foxx (elder), Tom Kotouc, and Jonathan Zartman

Each class begins with a time of praise and prayer followed by teaching and discussion using the The Pursuit of God, written by A. W. Tozer. This book challenges us to examine our response to the Creator and our desire to know Him .  Do we seek God ourselves or rely on others? Are we content with our normal patterns of life and ministry, or are we hungry and thirsty to Know Him and to learn from Him meekness and humility and to find rest for our souls?  Join us to be challenged as we seek God's grace to grow together in pursuing Him!
