Christian Life Development groups are groups that come together to edify one another through the in-depth study of God’s word through a variety of study topics, methods, and directions. The goal of these groups is for us to have a better understanding of God, how he is acting in our world, how he is acting in our lives, what he desires from us, and how we can better understand ourselves. There is always a variety of opportunities to learn and grow more throughout the week. Check out the current opportunities below!
Monday Nights
Its Not Supposed to be This Way
Leader: LoriAnn Garcia
When: Monday @ 7:00 PM | Dates:TBA  Location: Building A, Room 7 | Cost: $7.00
Reality often ends up so very far from the life we long for, doesn’t it? We can deeply understand daily disappointments and life-altering loss that impact people sometimes on a regular. Despite some of our struggles we can find strength in God and his word.  In this six-session video Bible study, Lysa TerKeurst offers a safe place to share your disappointments, fresh biblical insight to get you through painful situations, and life-giving perspectives for living in between Eden and eternity.
 
Tuesday Mornings
Think Differently
Leader: Marcia Waugh
Time: Tuesdays @ 10:00 AM |  1/15 to 3/19
Location: Building A, Room 7 |Cost: $15
Beyond behaviors and deeper than attitudes, thinking determines outcome more than anything else. The Book of Romans challenges us to be no longer conformed to the patterns of the world but rather to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. So much of what we are missing in life is associated with the way we process events in the world around us, draw conclusions about our circumstances, and act out of conclusions uninformed by the truth of Jesus and the gospel. In a world constantly bombarded by the fictions of a self-absorbed culture, managing our thinking becomes an even trickier proposition.
 
Wednesday Mornings
The Jesus Journey
Leader: Pastor Jerry Waugh
Time: Wednesdays @ 11 AM | 1/9-5/15 
Location: Family Life Center | Cost: None
The Jesus Journey. This is a verse by verse study of the book of Matthew. In this study we will see how Matthew intended to show how Jesus Christ was the promised Messiah. More than any other Gospel, the Gospel of Matthew quotes the Old Testament to show how Jesus fulfilled the words of all the prophets.

Overcoming Emotions that Destroy
Leader: Pastor Jerry Waugh
Time: Wednesdays @ 6:30 PM | 1/9-3/13
Location: Building D, Room 7 |Cost: $8
Do tensions and day-to-day frustrations result in stressed interactions with your loved ones? Anger is an emotion we all can relate to. But anger does not have to be an uncontrolled, negative emotion. In Overcoming Emotions That Destroy, authors Chip Ingram and Dr. Becca Johnson offer encouragement and advice on how to identify your own anger profile—as either a spewer, leaker, or stuffer—and show you how to harness that anger so you can grow personally, relationally and spiritually.
 
Letters to the Church
Leader: Ben Ellis
Time: Wednesdays @ 6:30 PM | 1/23-3/13
Location: Building D, Room 11 | Cost:
“We have strayed from what God calls Church.”   For our generation of believers what we want and expect the church to be is far from what we experience when we walk in the front door every Sunday.  We know that God intended something better for His people, we know that God wanted His Church to live and function in certain ways, but what are they and how do we live that kind of life style?  Come join a discussion of what the church ought to be, we will discover who God wants us to be and how we can live that out in real life.
