New Coed Celebrate Growth Group – “Gospel Revolution: Recovering the Power of Christianity” by J.D. Greear starting Monday, June 18, 2012.
Join us at Celebrate on Monday nights for this new Coed Celebrate Growth Group study led by Davin Emerson.
Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this study, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God’s gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel is the power of God, and the only true source of joy, freedom, radical generosity, and audacious faith. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.
The book’s core is a “gospel prayer” by which you can saturate yourself in the gospel daily. Dwelling on the gospel will release in you new depths of passion for God and take you to new heights of obedience to Him. Gospel gives you an applicable, exciting vision of how God will use you to bring His healing to the world.
Based on Greear’s newest book, Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary, the teaching centers on the idea that “the gospel is not just the way we begin in Christ; it is also the way we grow in Christ.”
Gospel Revolution is a DVD-driven 8 session study. Each of the sessions is a combination of live teaching and studio segments that enhance the message. At 18 to 23 minutes long, the session length works because the teaching is very compelling and will keep group members engaged. In addition, the Member Book includes a Video Guide (note-taking section) and Video Feedback (an opportunity to process and discuss the video). Check out this Video Trailer.
Celebrate on Monday nights starts at 6:00pm with great food, then a time of awesome worship and a challenging message from a variety of engaging speakers, such as our very own Chad Funk the leader of our fp Celebrate Ministry. Following our corporate time together we have several Celebrate Recovery and Celebrate Growth Groups for you to plug into to be ministered to and help you navigate your next steps toward growth and in your walk with God.
fp CELEBRATE is a place to Connect, heal, and grow at Faith Promise Church.
Celebrate is a vital part of the Groups Ministry here at Faith Promise Church. As with all of our groups, we focus on creating environments where people Encounter God, Embrace Others, and Engage the World Around Us.
