201_2591978

 

At Faith Promise, we believe groups are where faith comes alive. As Pastor Chris says, we gather each week in rows but life change happens in circles. The truth is, you can’t grow spiritually without connecting relationally. That’s why we create environments to help you connect with God and other Christ followers. One of these environments is our short term groups. These groups last 6-8 weeks and are a great first step toward connecting with Christ and others in a convenient and welcoming environment. Our short term groups will begin the week of January 24th.

For more information about what short term groups will be offered at your campus, visit the Next Steps area or you can search for Women’s, Men’s, and Co-Ed Short Term Groups Here.

Women's Bible Study

Wednesday Morning Studies:

Seamless By: Angie Smith – Led by Megan Mullins – Room 215

In seven sessions, Seamless covers the people, places, and promises of the Bible, tying them together into the greater story of Scripture. Participants will gain an overarching understanding of the fundamental layout and meaning of God’s Word. Each week of study features key information that ties all of scripture together into the seamless truth of the gospel message and is accompanied by maps, general Bible facts, and word studies.

Deeper Still By: Edna Ellison – Led by Brittney Gulmire – Room 233

Deeper Still is a six-week interactive Bible study for believers who seek to be a “deeper still Christian.” The author explores biblical principles and models for recognizing the path to maturity and moving toward a closer walk with God. Believers who desire to grow in the areas of wisdom and holiness—to live each day in the becoming, as well as the doing of the Christian life—will be challenged to go beyond the basics of Christianity to explore the biblical evidence of spiritual maturity in the Christian life.

Armor of God By: Priscilla Shirer – Led by Alyssa Patton – Room 209

All day, every day, an invisible war rages around you — unseen, unheard, yet felt throughout every aspect of your life. A devoted, devilish enemy seeks to wreak havoc on everything that matters to you: your heart, your mind, your marriage, your children, your relationships, your resilience, your dreams, your destiny.

But his battle plan depends on catching you unaware and unarmed. If you’re tired of being pushed around and caught with your guard down, this study is for you.

To Live is Christ By: Beth Moore – Led by Kristin McLoughlin – Room 217

Participants will get to know the “Apostle to the Gentiles” in a new way and discover him to be a man who formed many close friendships with both men and women. He served faithfully and loved heartily. This study will challenge and encourage you with a new appreciation of servant-hood.

Why I Believe – Finding Answers to Life’s Most Difficult Questions By: Chip Ingram – Led By Phyllis Zuchneid – Room 223
What happens to you when you die? Do you move on to another life? Are you just dead? How can you be sure? Chip investigates life after death. This is a compelling, very encouraging look at what comes next.

Thursday Evening Studies:

Breath By: Beth Moore – Led by Jennifer Dickson – Theater 1

This six-week study, centered on DVD-based teaching from Beth Moore, Breath examines the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Its title is drawn from the words of John 20:22, which records that Jesus “breathed on them and said, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit.'”

Unglued By: Lysa TerKeurst – Led by Heather Allred – Room 217

Based on the book by the same name, the Unglued Bible study by Lysa TerKeurst aims to help women make their emotions work for them instead of against them. She does this by helping them understand how to resolve conflict and find peace in their most important relationships, identify what type of reactor they are, how to respond without regrets, and how to gain a sense of calm in circumstances out of your control.

Gospel Revolution By JD Greear- Led by Sue Skytta – Room 215

Gospel Revolution is an 8-session discipleship experience that leads group members to understand how to let the gospel work in their hearts the way religion never has or could.

Study Details:

We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing.

It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. Sabbath was intended as a gift, and it is still a gift to us today. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life.

WEDNESDAY MORNINGS
Beginning April 8
10:00 a.m.

WhatloveisWhat Love Is by Kelly Minter
This study of 1, 2, & 3 John, encourages you to remain faithful to the truth. You will be challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. Led by Jennifer Dickson in Theater 1.
WBS2
Breathe by Priscilla Shirer – One of the greatest challenges among women in our culture is taking time to stop and cease from all the activities and busyness and just breathe. We are in bondage to busyness. We constantly strive to complete the limitless to-do lists that hinder us from experiencing all that God has for us. We miss the moments because we rush ahead to the next thing. By neglecting time for tranquility, serenity, and repose, we limit our Christlikeness and miss out on some of God’s greatest gifts. It is time for us to breathe and build margin into our lives for God. If you are weary, worn out, and exhausted the concept of Sabbath will change your life. Led by Kristin McLoughlin in Room 215.

christianstudyChristian: It’s Not What You Think by Andy Stanley – What does it mean to be Christian? Curiously, the term is never used in Scripture. Instead, Christian was a label used by outsiders to define Jesus’ followers. Jesus referenced ‘disciple’ as the key word he used to describe his supporters along with the fact that they would be known for their love – a novel concept for their time – and ours today. This study examines the characteristics Jesus used to define those who follow him and the implications they have for believers today. What if believers today embodied these traits? Would the non-believing world put aside its definition of ‘Christian’ and instead know us by our love? Led by Phyllis Zuschneid in Room 223.

THURSDAY NIGHTS
Beginning April 9
6:30 p.m.

God’s At War by Kyle IdlemanGodsatwar
In this new series, Kyle Idleman challenges our presumptions about sin by suggesting that all sin derives from the same source—idolatry. While we don’t see many “graven images” around today, Kyle argues that there are still countless gods passionately at war for the throne of our hearts. If we put the wrong god on the throne, our lives will be thrown into chaos, and all of the effort we put into fighting sin and overcoming it will be futile. Led by Sue Skytta in Room 215.

Cross Fit by JeFinalCrossfitLogo2nnifer Dickson
What does a Christian Woman look like in today’s world? How do we embrace who God has created us to be in a world where we have lost our spiritual identity? How do women build spiritual muscle to be the Warrior Princess, a woman of virtue and integrity, we are called to be? Join us as we dig into what God’s Word says about being a woman who knows her identity in Christ. One who knows her head is crowned, her spiritual clothing is beyond compare, and her armor is vital. But most of all she knows her Creator designed her for a flawless purpose. Led by Jennifer Dickson in Theater 1.

Precept Upon Precept – Revelation Part 2 (chapters 4-22)
Boys & Girls Club in Oliver Springs – Led by Luanna Blanton

This study will cover Revelation chapters 4-22. Through careful observation of the text, discover exactly what God says will take place. Please register by April 17. This is a 12 week class with an introduction class, beginning on May 5. For more info, contact Luanna at andblant@bellsouth.net or 865-406-1899.

move onMove On: When Mercy Meets Your Mess by Vicki Courtney
Room 215 – by Kristin McLoughlin

Most people will live their entire lives attempting to clean up their messes on their own or will hide their messes under a multitude of modern-day fig leaves. Are you weary of hiding and pretending? If so, it’s time to find the courage to come clean about the mess you are. It’s time to lay your heart and soul bare before the Lord and say, “I’m not okay, and I need Your help.” Once you face your messes, God—in His sweet mercy—will help you get real, deal, and truly move on. So say goodbye to that person you’ve been pretending to be and celebrate the person God created you to be: a gloriously imperfect mess who is loved by a perfect and holy God.

Esther: It’s Tough Being A Woman by Beth Mooreesther
Room 209 by Jennifer Dickson

Join in a very personal examination of this great story of threat and deliverance as Beth peels back the layers of history and shows how very contemporary and applicable the story of Esther is to our lives today. Just as it was tough being a woman in Esther’s day, it’s tough today. This portion of God’s Word contains treasures to aid us in our hurried, harried, and pressured lives.

invisibleThe Invisible War by Chip Ingram
Room 223 – Led by Phyllis Zuschneid

Beneath our tangible landscape lurks an invisible spiritual realm where unseen battles rage. It’s real. And it’s dangerous. If you’re prepared to remove the blinders and gaze into this unseen world, Chip Ingram is ready to take you there. Hang on to your seat. It’s going to be a journey inside the very folds of our Bibles, a journey that will teach us about our greatest foe, Satan, also known as Lucifer, Dragon, Serpent, and Son of the Morning Star.Although this lying thief comes to “steal, kill, and destroy,” God details in His Word the battle plan to uncover Satan’s cunning deceptions and to resist his sinister schemes. The cosmic conflict exploding all around us will have eternal implications, for us and those we love. This eight-part series by Chip Ingram will help you prepare to do spiritual battle with the enemy of your soul- and win! You’ll learn how to clothe yourself with God’s “spiritual armor” so you can be confident of your certain victory over the scheming enemy.

Starting Point – Find Your Place in the Storya5
Room 233 – Led by Sarah Krimmelbein

Find Your Place in the Story Welcome to Starting Point—a journey of discovering the broad arch of God’s story and where you fit into the narrative.

Starting Point is a natural, enjoyable, and potentially life-changing experience.

FinalCrossfitLogo2Cross Fit: Worth More than Rubies
Satelitte-1 – Led by Jennifer Dickson

What does a Christian Woman look like in today’s world? How do we embrace who God has created us to be in a world where we have lost our spiritual identity? How do women build spiritual muscle to be the Warrior Princess, a woman of virtue and integrity, we are called to be?

God’s Appointed Times – The 7 Feasts of Israel Then, Now, Futurea3
Room 223 – Led by Phyllis Zuschneid and Susie Fillenworth

Israel’s feasts are more than just a series of cultural observances. These feasts are appointed by the Lord, and are owned by the Lord. He calls them “my feasts,” the timing and sequence of each designed to reveal to us a special story. Together the feasts form God’s prophetic calendar, outlining the work of history’s most important person – Jesus, the Messiah. This DVD study covers the feasts’ historical background, tradition, modern day Jewish observances, their relevance to the New Testament and to us today, and their prophetic significance as we look to the future. Four of the feasts occur during spring or early summer and were fulfilled by Jesus during the actual celebration of the feasts. The last three occur during the fall within a brief 15-day period. The prophecies of the fall feasts have yet to be fulfilled. Susie Fillenworth, a “completed” Jew, will be joining Phyllis in leading this study. “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of things that were to come, the reality, however, is found in Christ.” (Col. 2:16-17)

not-a-fanNot A Fan by Kyle Idleman
Room 215 – Led by Sue Skytta
You may think you are a Christian—but are you sure? Jesus’ call to follow him is more than an invitation to pray a prayer. It is a summons to lose your life and find new life and ultimate joy in him “What did Jesus really mean when he said, ‘Follow me’?” What if we really listened to Jesus’ words and heard what he is saying? He doesn’t want enthusiastic admirers. He wants Completely Committed Followers. When people truly engage with Jesus’ personal invitation to follow him, everything changes, for he is worthy of all our trust and affections.

 Stuck by Jennie Allen, Single Mom’s Bible Study
Room 217 – Led by Tina Bright, Wanda Ringheimer, Dianna Parker

God has a plan for the stuck spaces inside of us, the places we feel broken, but we have to go to Him. Stuck is a journey to take an honest look at the fight going on inside, leading us to the God who has a plan to restore it, to restore us.

a2Undaunted by Christine Caine – This study offers life-transforming insights about how to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience. It also teaches us how to actually grow from those experiences and become equipped and empowered to help others. Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage. Her personal stories inspire readers to hear their name called, just as Christine heard her own—“You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chosen”—to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. Part inspirational tale, part manifesto to stir readers to lives of adventure, Undaunted shows the way with spiritual wisdom and insight. Meets in Room 209 and is led by Jennifer Dickson.

Meets in Room 209 and is led by Rhonda Lyles.

a8Free Indeed by Robert Morris:
As Christians, did you know we can be demonically oppressed? Even though we’ve received salvation and complete restoration through Jesus, it’s possible for the enemy to have a stronghold in areas we leave open to him. In this new series, Free Indeed, Pastor Robert talks about the different kinds of doors we leave open to the enemy, how we can close them, and what it means to be truly free. Meets in Room 233 and is led by Sue Skytta.

Single Mom’s Group

Meets in Room 215 and is led by Linda Moore.
