It’s our pleasure to offer our Winter/Spring Semester D-Groups starting Wednesdays in January 2014. Our D-Groups are designed to equip God’s Church to serve one another and the world. For information on each D-Group peruse the material provided. It’s our prayer that led by God; you will journey toward deeper understanding of God’s call for your life.
D-Groups are provided to study the Word with a specific topic in mind to further equip and cultivate a believer’s walk with Christ. D-Groups are groups that have a specific time period and seek to foster environments that cultivate discipleship, worship, and Biblical life skills for service. D-Groups are divided into three levels:
- Discover groups are designed to help anyone “discover” the foundational Biblical understandings of the Christian faith and life.
- Deepen groups are designed to give more in-depth study of the materials addressed in the Discover Group.
With a Biblical foundation in place, this series of classes is designed to further equip believers within a focused area of service.
- Deploy groups are opportunities for each of us serve God’s people through His equipping us to be His hands and feet.
For more information on any of our groups contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org

The name Operation Timothy comes from the relationship the Apostle Paul had with a young man named Timothy. It is more than a curriculum or set of lessons. There are 3 books in the Operation Timothy series. Each book builds concept upon concept, and will take the disciple deeper and deeper into the truths of Scripture. By leveraging the natural connections that form in the trenches of day-to-day life, a man can make this investment in other men, and all will be impacted for eternity. Materials needed: Available in the LRC.

It takes courage to face an addiction. However, no matter how bad things have become, God offers a way out. Freedom from Addiction is a biblical approach to discovering a whole new life – a life of joy, of peace, of wholeness, of sobriety, of self-control, of FREEDOM! It is not a self-help or a rehabilitation program, but is a paradigm shift. It shifts the focus from oneself to God. Materials needed: Available in the LRC.
It may seem impossible to feel optimistic about the future. If you have lost a spouse, child, family member or friend, it may seem that people do not understand the deep pain you feel. This can be a confusing time of isolation and painful, difficult questions about unknown challenges and experiences. Each weekly GriefShare session covers a different topic that builds upon the prior week and has three distinct elements: a video seminar by Christian experts with personal stories, group discussion with focus, and a workbook-based personal Bible study and reflection to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Materials needed: Available in the LRC.
