Overview of the 12 Minor Prophets

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets…

This summer study will be an overview of the twelve minor prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. They are called minor not because they lack significance, but because of their relative length compared to the better-known prophets like Isaiah or Ezekiel. While reviewing the historical details surrounding the text and the practical insights within each message, we will focus our attention on the ultimate goal of seeing more of Christ in the minor prophets.

A Review of the TCC Elder Candidate Questionnaire

Many of the key tenets of our faith are outlined in the questionnaire that each elder candidate must complete as a part of the TCC Elder-Pastor Intern Program. We expect our elders and elder candidates to have a solid biblical understanding of these topics, but should we expect any less of ourselves? In this life group, we will study biblical responses to these questions so that, alongside our elders, we may be prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks us for a reason for the hope that is in us. (1 Peter 3:15)

The Book of Leviticus

Today there are many Christians who believe all the rules and regulations and laws found in the book of Leviticus are simply no longer relevant. However, there is much regarding the person and work of Christ and the new covenant people of God that can scarcely be understood without a working knowledge of this important book. What does it mean for Christ to be our great high priest? What does it mean for him to be our Passover lamb? Why was his life of obedience and death on the cross necessary for our redemption? What does it mean for believers to be a royal priesthood, a holy nation? Through our study of Leviticus, we will seek to understand these New Testament concepts in light of their Old Testament context, and ultimately seek to know Christ more fully and deeply.

Expository Study of The Gospel of John (Chapters 13-21)

This summer Life group will focus on the last Chapters of John known to some as “The Book of Glory” in an inductive discussion of God’s message. We will see why the book of John is sometimes called “The Book of Signs” and how John the Apostle/Author alludes to the Old Testament prophecies fulfilled in the last week of Christ’s life.

The teaching of Jesus recorded in John illustrates His Deity, amplifies his many signs and brings clarity to the believer of the Gospel message and Christ’s call for His Church to spread the Good News. This weekly inductive discussion, Chapter by Chapter, will focus on the private ministry by Jesus to His Disciples, His Farewell Discourse, His Intercessory Prayer, His Resurrection, His appearance and the “Call to the Church.”

* Childcare is not provided. However, parents may bring their children who are able to play quietly during the lesson. This may include sitting with parents or playing unsupervised in a separate room.


And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.  
Hebrews 10:24-25 (ESV)

In our Life Groups, our shared life and gatherings will be guided by the following goals:
  1. Meet God through his Word Faithfully and Expectantly. (Psalms 19:7-11; 2 Peter 1:3,4)
    The Bible will play a central role in our Life Groups because it holds the words of life. We need God’s Word more than we need food, and there are always more riches to be seen, enjoyed and applied to our lives. Our desire is for each participant to study the Scriptures expectantly, with the eyes of faith, anticipating God to speak and move each time we open his book.

  2. Prayerfully Depend on the Lord. (Philippians 4:6,7; Hebrews 4:14-16)
    Prayer will be the regular, visible engine of our Life Group Communities. We will look to God for everything we need, never taking his provision for granted. When we are alone and when we are together, we will be a people of prayer – always adoring, always confessing, always thanking, always asking.

  3. Worship God in Song. (Psalm 9:2; Ephesians 5:19)
    Singing has a unique way of bringing our heart, soul, mind, and strength together to focus entirely and completely on our Mighty God. In an age of distraction, singing grabs the attention of all our senses and focuses us on God.

  4. Know and Serve One Another Persistently. (1 Thessalonians 2:7,8; Hebrews 3:12,13)
    Week-in and week-out, we will work to know each other more and more deeply – sharing our hearts and lives, praying for one another, asking questions and bearing one another’s burdens. And, with everything we learn about each other -- good, bad or otherwise -- we will strive to love and serve one another, meeting each others needs, encouraging growth and helping one another to thrive.

  5. Pursue Disciples for Jesus Boldly and Globally (Matthew 28:19,20; Acts 1:8)
    Our commission from Jesus is clear. Go and make disciples. God saved us in order to send us. We will strive to be lights in a world of darkness and despair. We are God’s chosen means of spreading the Good News and winning worship for himself in every corner of the earth. Therefore, we are to be bold where we are, and we are eagerly behind what God is doing among the nations!
