Northcliffe Groups
 
 
Christian Life Development Groups (CLD Groups)
 
CLD Groups are opportunities for us to be challenged to grow in our walk with Christ in a safe place. These groups 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.
 
Our goal in every CLD Group is that we will grow closer to God and to who He desires us to be.

Dates: October 23 – November 20, 2019
Location: Building D, Room 7
Cost: None
The story of Jonah is really a story about all of us.  Each of us can look at times in our lives where we have attempted to run from what God wanted us to do.  And what many of us runners discover is while we can run from God, we can’t outrun God!  In this series, we will rediscover the epic grace of God for each of our lives.  In this five part series, we will see our stubbornness and the grace of the God of second chances for our lives.  Spoiler Alert: The book of Jonah is not really just about the fish.

Teach Us to Want

Leader: Cheryl Uroda
When: Tuesdays, 9 AM

Location: Building D, Room 1
Cost: None
We all want things: certain relationships, just the right job, affirmation from others, a life full of passion and purpose. Contemporary culture says to go after desire, pursue your “I want” list ruthlessly. Christianity seems to send a different message: Wanting is sinful and selfish. Faith is about obedience and sacrifice.
How do we reconcile the longings in our hearts with the God we’re called to follow? 
In five sessions, based on her 2015 Christianity Today Book of the Year Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith, author and Bible teacher Jen Pollock Michel takes women on a brave journey through their many desires, longings, and ambitions.
 
Fear and Faith
Leader: Maryann Mccleave

When:  Monday, November 18 at 7 PM
Location: Building A, Room 7
Cost: None


Failure, rejection, sickness, losing a loved one, being alone—the fears we carry are many and heavy. Fear can be a tyrant, a bully we can’t hide from. It can paralyze our spirit, damage our relationships, and hinder our faith. In five heartfelt sessions based on her book, Fear and Faith: Finding the Peace Your Heart Craves, speaker and author Trillia Newbell invites women to explore their fears and how those fears impact their relationships, self-esteem, peace of mind, and walk with God. Each session features real-life stories of women who are wrestling with fear due to tragic events, difficult circumstances, or deep anxiety about what may or may not happen. Trillia will walk through Scriptures that show God’s love and strength when we are afraid and His faithfulness in times of trouble.
