Taste of Community Dinners
Sunday, November 13
Interested in learning more about how to connect in a Grace Group? Join us for one of our dinners Sunday, November 13 to get a taste of meeting in homes, sharing your story, and getting an orientation to Grace Groups. You’ll meet ministry leaders who can help you take your next step toward joining a group. Contact Linda Flatt at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Current Study Guides
We recommend our weekly sermon study guides as your best option for Grace Group curriculum. This helps your group engage with our Grace teaching and mission as a church. We develop study guides as a Bible study that can stand alone even when members don’t attend weekend services. If your group meets every other week, you can continue on the study guide for that week. Since we make study guides available before weekend sermons, leaders can customize their study according to what group members need. We encourage you to take advantage of this great resource written specifically for Grace Groups.
Subscribe to Study Guides
By subscribing to this list, we’ll email you the study guide on Friday before the weekend teaching on weeks we write a new study guide. Subscribe now by logging into your Grace Account.
Past Study Guides
To view all current and past study guides for each message, visit our sermons page.
When you want another study option, you have FREE access to RightNow Media, which includes thousands of streaming video resources to help you with parenting, marriage, discipleship and more. You can have group members watch streaming video study sessions on their personal device before your meeting, or you can watch the session during your meeting with a TV capable of streaming video. Many video studies also offer study guides you can purchase online.
Way of Discipleship
To determine the best study for your group’s discipleship, we recommend using our Discipleship Practice Worksheet. After your members pick their top three practices they feel like they need to work on, you can choose recommended studies for each practice using the Way of Discipleship Resource Guide.
Below is a list of helpful resources for leaders and/or group members:
Events & Retreats
Friday, February 3 & March 24
Unplug from the world and spend a day reconnecting with God through one of two tracks:
The Unplugged Experience (led by Ron Stohler). We start by introducing tools for connecting with God, then you choose how to use your sacred time alone. The directed part of the retreat lasts until 5:00 p.m., but you can use the retreat center until 5:00 p.m.
The Enneagram Experience (led by David Bell). The Enneagram is an assessment based on nine distinct personality types. We use the Enneagram assessment in leadership development and the Way of Discipleship to help us grow in Christ and understand how to effectively lead others. If you are interested in the Enneagram track, register for Unplugged like you normally do, take the Enneagram online at wepss.com (it costs an additional $10) and send your results to Beth Bertino at email@example.com. Your results will be kept confidential. David will take you through the Enneagram assessment in the morning and be available in the afternoon for one-on-one consultation.
The day includes lunch. We ask that you register in advance for this retreat.Register
