SPIRITUAL GROWTH

Topic 1 (6 weeks): “The Purpose Driven Life” (Rick Warren)
The Purpose Driven Life is a guide to a spiritual journey. On your journey you’ll find the answers to three of life’s most important questions:

  • The Question of Existence: Why am I alive?
  • The Question of Significance: Does my life matter?
  • The Question of Purpose: What on earth am I here for?

Topic 2 (4 weeks): “The Blessed Life” (Robert Morris)
"There is no greater adventure on Earth than simply living the life of generosity and abundance that is available to all of God's people--but so few ever dare to live it. It is a journey of reward. It is the blessed life." (Robert Morris) Our culture is saturated with false teaching on what it means to be blessed, but what does the Bible say about it? How can we truly live blessed lives? 

Facilitators:  Jim Dick (“The Purpose Driven Life”), Karen Murphy (“The Blessed Life”)
Day/Time: Tuesday, 6:30-8:00 p.m.
Location: Winchendon

 

BIBLE STUDY

Click here to register

Topic: “The Book of Jonah” (Eric Mason)
Jonah gives us a picture of a man on the run due to his own selfish desires. At the end of the day, God is less concerned with what we do for Him than who we are in Him. This study of the Book of Jonah reveals how God uses extraordinary circumstances to break our hearts of selfishness, convince us of His tender care, and unite our lives to His glory.
