CLEAR PATHWAYS TOWARD SPIRITUAL GROWTH
A ten-week conversational environment where people can explore truth and experience community, while discovering God’s overarching story found in Scripture. Each week explorers will work through a conversational guide book, where they can reflect on Bible passages and thoughtful questions, as well as listen to inspiring, deeply informative messages by Andy Stanley.
Thousands of years before Jesus appeared in Bethlehem, God was preparing His people for His blessed coming. We cannot therefore fully appreciate the purpose of Jesus’s mission until we immerse ourselves in this ancient story. Come join us as we take a look at this exciting revelation of God’s eternal story.
S.H.A.P.E.: Spiritual Gifts, Heart, Abilities, Personality, Experience.
God uniquely prepares each of us to engage in His work, but often we get a little lost trying to discern this calling. In this very practical study by Erik Rees, we will work through a series of small group discussions and reflections that will help us to discover our spiritual SHAPE.
This resource was originally written as a supplement to Rick Warren’s Purpose Drive Life. We will take an online survey to help us get started, and then we will reflect together on God’s unique call upon each our lives.
