Weekly Life Groups
The Spring 2020 Semester begins on January 8, 2020
The Spring 2020 Life Group sign-up begins on Sunday, December 22nd. Our goal is to have a maximum of 12 ADULTS per group. The Life Groups actually begin to meet on January 8, 2020. The material to be studied in each Life Group is set out below:
Life Group 1

Deuteronomy 1-34 (J.I. Packer / Matthew Patton)
The book of Deuteronomy contains the final words of Moses to Israel as they wait to enter the Promised Land. Reflecting on the nations past mistakes, Moses calls Israel to faithful obedience while recounting the past faithfulness of God. This study guide helps Christians understand that the only hope for obedience to God's commands is the grace of God found in the person and work of Jesus.
Life Group 2
Corey Dawson 254-217-2346
The Lord's Prayer (Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.)
Prayer is central to our fellowship with God. Our prayer life is directly affected by what we believe about God. In the Lord's Prayer DVD series Dr. Mohler shows that the pattern of prayer Jesus provides is few in words yet massive in meaning. His prayer reflects true theology and proper doxology -- a perfect guide for our own lives.
Life Group 3
Hexon J Maldonado 254-433-8780
A Study of the Weekly Sermon
Please join us as we will be digging deeper into the sermon each week, answering questions about the message, discussing it while exploring related passages and applying it to our own culture and own lives.
Life Group 4

Romans 1-7 & 8 -16 (Tim Keller)
Romans 1 -7 is about the righteousness we need from God. These chapters show us why we don't have it, why we need it, and how we can receive it. These studies will help you to understand one of the most-read, most written-about parts of the Bible. And, as we unwrap God's gift of right standing with Him, His Word will transform your heart, life, identity and perspective.
Romans 8 -16: Many feel that Romans 8 contains the most helpful information for real life change. In this seven-study guide, we will cover that chapter and the remainder of Romans.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
