We encourage our adult members at St. John's to actively participate in a weekly small group. Why? To provide another opportunity for community.
2021/2022 ADULT SMALL GROUP INFORMATION
SUNDAY MORNINGS 9:15A – 10:15A:
PASTOR DAN (West/New School Art Room) . . . “What Recovery Looks Like—The Road Back From a Season of Pain.” Most of us understand what it’s like to be in recovery from something painful or traumatic. In a sense, we’re all recovering from something. How? We deal with sin and its effects every day—whether life-controlling issues (alcohol, shopping, food, pornography), or illness, surgery, loss, relationship pain, or a pandemic that has altered our world (and us) and tested our Christianity. These can leave us wounded, defeated, farther from God. Class will finish mid-March.
BILL WALLER (Church Library) . . . We will be reading Richard Paul Evans book, The Broken Road. In my view it’s a contemporary Pilgrim’s Progress. A man grew up poor, in a family beaten by their father. He hated God because He allowed it to happen. We watch the main character become successful in worldly terms, and to believe there is no God but him. We will consider whether the vast majority of mankind is any different, and what we can do to get on and stay on the narrow road to salvation.
LINDA & NOEL SAMUTA (Church Fellowship Hall) . . . “Biblical Citizenship,” is a 16 week study which is taught by St. John’s member John N. who has been officially trained to lead this course. Being Biblical Citizens requires a knowledge of Biblical principles and how to apply them to the world around us.
HAROLD BURROW (Church Finance Room) . . . Beginning mid-March 2022. Study each weeks Sermon Questions.
ADULT SMALL GROUP "Renegades" (Church - Stephen Ministry Room) . . . This group will be studying Francis Chan’s book, Forgotten God, a study of the person and work of the Holy Spirit.
