Jesus and the Movement of God: Stories in Mark, the First Gospel
Wednesday, September 27, 6:30 - 8:00PM
Location: The Life Center
Leader: Dr. David May

The Gospel of Mark is unique in many ways: shortest Gospel, action-packed Gospel, and the Gospel that opened the floodgate of penning Jesus’ story. This six-week Bible study will explore reading this unique Gospel in its social, historical, and cultural contexts and then engage Mark’s story in the “so what” questions of contemporary life. Dr. May is Professor of New Testament at Central Seminary in Shawnee, KS. He and his wife Pam are active Word of Lifers.

To join this six-week study group, email Pastor Derek at

The Upper Zoom
Tuesdays at 1 PM CT
Leader: Mike Rogers

One thing about the messages we hear at Word of Life Church is they are worth hearing again and discussing as we each grow in the grace of God. Discussion guides will be posted at Sunday mornings. We are meeting on Zoom on Tuesdays at 1PM CT. These groups will be a great opportunity to get to know one another better, discuss the main points of each message, be reminded of the scripture references, and learn to apply what we are learning together.

Celebrate Recovery (CR)
Tuesday nights at 6:30 PM CT
Leader: Pastor Tyrese Barnett

Celebrate Recovery (CR) is a small-group-based support ministry for those looking for encouragement to overcome the difficulties of life. We meet every Tuesday night from 6:30-8:30 PM in the Life Center. 

CR is not just about recovery; it is about life transformation. Many people find themselves stuck in some kind of cycle of bad choices or pain - from which they feel they will never be free. At CR, there is hope. There are people who care. There is a way out. CR is not just a place for people struggling with addiction, but a refuge for anyone looking for help.
