Word on Wednesday Fall Small Group Bible Study

As the writer of Hebrews discusses in chapter 5, we need more than milk to live as we grow and mature.  Infants live on milk, but as they grow and mature, solid food is needed for development. The same can be said of our spiritual growth and maturity.  This fall we are embarking on a journey for all ages to grow and mature in their spiritual maturity by studying God’s WORD.  There is something for EVERYONE.

 

We all need a mid-week boost and a time for encouragement in our spiritual journey.  Please take a moment to look through this brochure and find your place to connect with other believers who are going on their own spiritual growth journey. 

 

Growing Together,

John received messages from God for seven churches that existed in his day. These were real churches, each facing challenges that threatened their existence and effectiveness. By studying these letters, believers

today can find encouragement and instruction for their church.


The focus of this study is to understand each church’s context of ministry, the challenges faced by that church, and the instructions given to that church. Today’s believers will be challenged to look for ways the lessons learned from these churches can be applied to their setting with the goal of strengthening and encouraging churches of today.
