GENERAL GROUPS

FEARLESS

MONDAY | 6:30-8:00PM | VIDEO/BOOK STUDY

LEADERS: TANYA & MIKE WHITE

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Martinez Home | Duration: Ongoing (this study starts October 4)

Fear may fill the world but does not have to fill your heart. Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear. Layoffs at work. Slowdowns in the economy. Health scares. Division. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into the prison of our anxious minds and keeps us from the freedom Christ offers. New York Times bestselling author and pastor Max Lucado invites us to turn to faith, not fear, as our default reaction to the threats of life. In this book, Max will help you:

  • Find freedom from the fear of insignificance.
  • Take comfort that the Lord will never leave your side.
  • Unleash your worries and become filled with peace.
  • Today, learn to trust more and fear less.

Our group is a hybrid class both zoom and in person. We are a group of prayer, passion, concern and Gods Word. We love to share our thoughts and outlooks on life. Join us as we take a journey learning to be fearless.

WHY DO I FEEL UNBLESSABLE

TUESDAY | 6:30-7:30PM | BOOK STUDY

LEADERS: PERRY PICCHI

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Creekside Church | Duration: 8 Weeks (starting 10/5)

In the book "Why do I Feel Unblessable" is a descriptive and applicable study of how many Christians can fall into this category. It will help clarify that the God of this universe is in touch and in love with us more than we know. The key is to accept this love in spite of our own perception of ourselves, unanswered prayer, or events in ones life. There will be stories of restorations also.

40 DAY SUGAR FAST

TUESDAY | 6:30-8:00PM | BOOK/SUPPORT GROUP

LEADERS: KELLY SEALANDER & DORCY HANSKEN

We will be reading and committing to a 40 Day Sugar Fast. The book is called 40 Day Sugar Fast by Wendy Speake. It's a book where physical detox meets Spiritual transformation. This is all about a process that begins with giving Jesus our sugar and ends with Jesus giving us more of Himself-the only thing that can ever truly satisfy our soul's deep hunger. If you are the person who struggles with sugar for comfort or reward, eats mindlessly or out of boredom or struggles with self control, this fast will help you discover not only freedom from your craving but an entirely new appetite for good things God has for you.

WOMEN'S GROUPS

LADIES JOURNALING

SATURDAYS 9:00-10:30AM | BIBLE STUDY | LEADER: MONIQUE THOMPSON

Frequency: Twice a Month | Location: Creekside & Zoom | Duration: Ongoing

Journaling is an excellent way to both record and process what God speaks to us. It's also a useful tool to use at a later time, to reflect on and review some of the 'gems' that you have received. Without writing them down, you may forget those blessings and some very important lessons! And while journaling is a very personal time with the Lord, you may want to share some of your journaling with your small group or mentors. Through discussion, you may be able to look deeper into what God is speaking to you, gain new insight and encourage others & receive encouragement from others. This group is for all women whether you have journaled before or not. It is a casual time to get together twice a month  and read a passage together, write about what we are reading and then if comfortable share and discuss what we have read. All you need to bring is a Bible, pen/pencil, journal, and an open heart.

WEDNESDAYS 7:00-8:30PM  |  VIDEO STUDY | LEADER: CATHY MITCHELL

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Creekside Church & Zoom | Duration: 6 weeks (starting November 10)

This study was born in a hard season - a pandemic that locked down the world, compounded by the ancient sin of racism and the volcano of rage ignited. Perhaps you have wondered if the lingering effects of this season would ever end. If so, God has a six-letter word of encouragement for you: E-S-T-H-E-R. The book that bears her name was written to be read in hard seasons. It was crafted for those who feel outnumbered by foes, outmaneuvered by fate, and outdone by fear. The message God wants us to take to heart is, Relief will come.
