GENERAL GROUPS (men/Women)

SHARING LIFE GROUP

WEDNESDAY | 6:30-8:00 PM | BIBLE/BOOK STUDY

LEADERS: ERIC & PEGGY JOHNSON

Frequency: Weekly | Location: Creekside Church | Duration: Ongoing

Sometimes what we believe about the Christian life comes from a single but prominent point of view—an older Christian we look up to, a preacher, or a parent. But is there only one way of living the life of a Jesus follower?
The Christian life—even one centered on grace—can still feel like a long list of dos and don'ts. But what if there's more (and less) to our faith than we typically believe? In this series based on his book A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God, pastor Larry Osborne tackles popular assumptions about Christian living that create stress and failure rather than growth and joy.

WOMEN'S GROUPS

LADIES JOURNALING

SATURDAY | 9:00-10:30 AM | BIBLE STUDY

LEADER: MONIQUE THOMPSON

Frequency: Twice a Month | Location: Online/In-person at Creekside | 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! 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 and start your Saturday morning 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.
