This six-week Companions in Christ study challenges Christians to live the whole gospel by connecting spirituality and discipleship.

The Way of Grace, 8 week study led by Gaye Hamor

Wednesday nights, starting Wednesday Sept. 29; 6-7:30 pm at SMBC

The Way of Grace provides a fresh approach to the Gospel of John. It invites us to travel with eight biblical characters (or groups of characters) who discover God’s grace through their encounter with Jesus– including Andrew, Nicodemus, the lame man, Mary and Martha, and others. The Way of Grace asks us to open our hearts to a deeper understanding of God’s grace. It offers transforming interaction with the events and the characters of scripture.

The Way of Blessedness, 9 week study led by Hart Brupbacher

Sunday afternoons following worship, beginning October 3; 12:30-2pm in Loessner Building 205

The Way of Blessedness is a 9-week study using The Beatitudes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. The journey invites participants to discover Jesus’ vision of the kingdom of God on earth, and to develop a personal “rule of life” that helps us reside in that kingdom.

One Response to Are you yearning for a deeper experience of God?

  1. Having been victimized by a cult church, I now value and treasure the proper understanding of Scripture that I received through genuine Christian ministries. Every time I find a church or ministry proclaiming biblical truth and encouraging apologetics, I give praise to God. Christianity isn’t going to church each Sunday but a total commitment to Christ in every aspect of life. I hope and pray that these studies will rouse people from their complacency before it’s too late.
