Discipleship Groups

Connect in a Discipleship Group
and find encouragement

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another and all the more as we see the Day approaching" (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Christ's church was meant to be like a BLAZING FIRE--hot, impassioned, and enduring! Without a vibrant connection to a healthy congregation, many "lone ember" Christians soon fade away in their faith. In contrast, believers who have encouragement and accountability in some sort of discipleship group or ministry team will be personally challenged to “burn on” in ever-increasing intensity as they walk with Christ. We firmly believe that EVERY believer needs some sort of small group connection. Here are some of the current small group offerings:

Sunday Discipleship Groups


Overcomer

Date: Starting January 13
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 102

Do you struggle with temptation, anxiety, or with finding joy in the daily grind? Take heart! God’s Word says we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Join us for six weeks of study with Dr. David Jeremiah as we focus on the armor of Christ and Ephesians 6:10-18. How can you rise above life’s challenges? By walking in the strength of our Savior, who has ALREADY overcome the w­­­orld (John 16:33). Let’s encourage each other to walk in greater victory this year. Room 102, 9 AM, starting Jan. 13. Contact Scott & Becky Dunker (sbdunk94@gmail.com) with questions.

This class has a couples focus but is open to all: everyone is welcome!

Living the Five with John Blair

Date: Starting January 13
Time: 9:00 AM
Meeting Location: Room 115

We live in a generation of noise. Even as Christians, there is so much information that sometimes we feel paralyzed or confused. But following Christ is not supposed to be hard! In fact, Jesus even gave us two key commandments to will order everything else in life (love the Lord, love your neighbor). Do you want to connect with other people and stay on course in your walk with Christ? “Living the Five” uses these two key commands of Christ and the five points of our Calvary mission statement (evangelism, worship, fellowship, discipleship, and ministry) to encourage you an uncomplicated journey of following Jesus! Starting Jan. 13 at 9:00 AM. Room 115. Contact John Blair (701-429-3309) with questions.

Verse-by-Verse in God's Word

Date: Starting January 13
Time: 10:30 AM
Meeting Location: Room 101

In John 6 Jesus said, “the words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” In the western world, we are immersed in Biblical resources but parched in our personal knowledge of Christ. Do you want to know Jesus better and to learn to read the Bible for yourself? Wayne Eastman will guide us in a verse-by-verse study of Matthew 5-7, challenging us to grow in maturity, obedience, and personal knowledge of Jesus. Starting Jan. 13 at 10:30 AM. Room 101.

Living Free Insight Study

Date: January 13-March 10
Time: 10:30 AM

Want to go deeper than the “Sunday small talk” and build authentic relationships with others? The “Living Free” Insights study helps men and women get real with God and get real with others as they face life-controlling problems and find wholeness in Christ. Develop godly character, build deeper friendships, and find victory over negative attitudes, behaviors, and relationships that have been stealing your joy. Join us from Jan. 13 to Mar. 10 at 10:30 AM. Room 115. Contact Kathy Spriggs (701-866-7307) with questions.
