1) The Magnificent Story by James Bryan Smith
This study will be facilitated by Dennis Richardson (316-619-8892)
Meets in Room 15E
We are story-making people. We love reading stories—and we love hearing the personal stories of others. We need stories, or narratives, to make sense of our world. And those stories shape our lives.
What is the story you have been told about the gospel? About God? About the Christian life? About Jesus? About the cross? About yourself? About heaven?
Your answers to these questions will form a story that will determine how your life will go. The answers reveal your ability to trust, to love, to hope—and even your capacity for joy. Any story worth giving the power to shape our lives must pass a simple test: Is it beautiful, good, and true? If it is, then it is a magnificent story—and that is where transformation takes place.
From James Bryan Smith, author of the bestselling book The Good and Beautiful God, comes this spiritual formation resource meant to help both individuals and groups understand the magnificent story of Christ in their lives. Soon to be followed by The Magnificent Journey: Living Deep in the Kingdom (Fall 2018) and The Magnificent Mission: Called and Sent by the Storyteller (Fall 2019), the field-tested material within includes spiritual practices at the end of each chapter and a group discussion guide.
Uncover the true story of beauty, goodness, and truth that will satisfy the ultimate longings of your heart.
2) Introduction to Wesleyan Small Groups
with Pastor Isaac Chua
Meets in Room 13E
Join us in this introduction class as we explore what made the early Methodism movement so successful. We will explore how John Wesley encouraged people to practice spiritual disciplines and care for each other’s souls in the process. The purpose of the small group is for participants to experience the transformational grace of God through journeying together with fellow believers. This will be a 12-week group. For more information or questions, contact Pastor Isaac at
3) Women of The Word
facilitated by Ginny Hall 316-200-4209
Meets in Room 11E
Come join a group of ladies who desire to provide love and support to each other as they deepen their faith and apply it to their daily lives. Topics of study vary and are chosen by the group. Cost of books vary and will be discussed by the group.
4) The Good Neighbor Experiment
with Pastor Lance
Meets in Room 12E (The Chapel)
Better Neighboring for People of Faith
What if loving our actual neighbor could change the world? The Good Neighbor Experiment provides simple, doable and universal neighboring practices to help people of faith live the greatest commandment where they actually live.
How does it work?
GNE is more of a practice group than a small group. GNE is made up of 4 six-week Labs.
Lab 1 focuses on the 3 Ingredients of Neighboring. Lab 2 guides participants through a basic neighboring practice. Lab 3 ask the group to host a neighboring event. Lab 4 provides case studies of how neighboring can become part of a churches DNA.
What is a Neighbor?
We believe a good neighbor is a person who intentionally develops relationships with the people living near them from a place of abundance and joy. GNE will require you to talk to neighbors, but in authentic nonthreatening ways.
What are the results?
Participants of GNE have seen increased energy in their churches, renewal of their personal faith, and strengthened neighborhood connection. Neighboring is proven to increase health, reduce crime, and promote trust.
