NEW ONLINE GROUPS
Starting during the season of Lent, beginning in February 2021

A Bird's Eye View of the Old Testament
Wednesday nights at 6:30PM CT beginning February 24
Leader: Peri Zahnd

This three-week class is for those who don't know much about the Old Testament, or for those for whom it seems like a bunch of disconnected stories. We will meet three consecutive Wednesdays, February 24, March 3, and March 10 from 6:30 - 8:00 PM. We'll look at a timeline of events, a review of the structure, important characters, and the overarching story. Participation in this class is available for a donation of any amount.

To register go to wolc.com/OldTestament.

 

Embracing the Revolutionary Cross
Tuesdays nights at 8:00PM CT beginning February 23

Lent is a season for drawing near to Christ crucified. In this six-week small group, Pastor Derek will be leading an interactive study of The Day the Revolution Began: Reconsidering the Meaning of Jesus's Crucifixion by N.T. Wright. Participants are encouraged to get a copy of Pastor's Derek's book N.T. Wright and the Revolutionary Cross for this online discussion.

Sermon Discussion Group
Tuesdays beginning January 12 at 1PM and 7PM 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 wolc.com/discussion-questions Sunday mornings beginning January 10.

We will have two small group opportunities on Zoom on Tuesdays at 1PM and 7PM CT. We invite our European online members to join us at 1PM central time which is 7PM in the UK. 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.

To join one of these groups email Mike Rogers at  

 

The Garden Book Study
Wednesdays beginning January 13 at 6:00PM CT
Leaders: Mike & Cathy Hubble

The Garden, by bestselling author Jon Gordon, is an enlightening and encouraging spiritual fable that reveals the 5 D’s (doubt, distort, discourage, distract, and divide) that can sabotage us and a proven plan to help us overcome and win the battle in our mind. We'll provide chapter summaries during each group meeting on Zoom, but reading along is helpful! We want to encourage one another and build up each other in the faith as we meet to discuss this book.

The Good and Beautiful God Book Study
Wednesdays beginning January 13 at 6:30PM CT
Leader: Cyndi Lamb

The Good and Beautiful God helps us discover the God Jesus knew and the Kingdom he proclaimed. The author, James Bryan Smith believes transformation must begin with a deep dive into the character of God. This book encourages us to examine the views of God we hold, compare them to the God that Jesus revealed, and begin a process of changing our minds. This group involves reading a chapter a week, practicing the weekly Soul-Training exercise, and sharing and discussing your experiences on our weekly Zoom call!

The Deeply Formed Life Book Study
Wednesdays beginning January 13 at 6:30PM CT
Leaders: David and Pam Whitt

Author and Pastor Rich Villodas says we must restore depth, focus, and meaning for our souls. His book The Deeply Formed Life (Christianity Today's 2020 Spiritual Formation Book of the Year) lays out a fresh, holistic vision for spiritual breakthrough through five unexpected pathways including contemplative rhythms, racial reconciliation, interior examination, sexual wholeness, and a missional presence. A discussion guide will be provided as we meet on Zoom to look at these five pathways and wrestle together as we continue to experience the work of God in forming us into the image of Jesus.

The Lamb at the Center
Thursdays beginning January 14 at 8:00PM CT
Leader: Pastor Derek Vreeland

We find the good life everyone is looking for when we keep Jesus at the center of all we do. The current state of the world is pulling and pressuring us to center ourselves on something else, our jobs, our status, our political affiliation, or our accomplishments but Jesus, the Lamb of God, has the words of eternal life, abundant life, the good life! This online small group experience provides a compelling vision of Jesus at the center of our spiritual life, our moral life, and our life together. Pastor Derek will provide some brief teaching each week and then we will discuss what it looks like to live with the Lamb at the center of our lives.
