The Forge, a Men's Discipleship Study in the Gospel of Mark
This group will continue to meet on Saturdays at 7am in the Connection Cafe. Jesus called His first disciples with the words, "come and follow Me." So listen to see if He is now calling you to come and join other men of Christ Church as we dig deeply into the book of Mark to also discover what it means for us to follow Jesus as His disciples today. This is not a simple study of an old book or theoretical theology. This will be a pursuit of the living Lord Jesus Christ so that He might forge us into the men He has intended us to be. This fall the study will begin in chapter 6. It will be led by Pastor Vann.

C4 PRAYER GROUPS
Shaped in Spirit - a Prayer Gathering
This group will meet Sundays at 6:30pm in the Sanctuary.God has always called His people first to become a movement of prayer...then He uses them to transform the world. He teaches us how to pray alone, in that quiet place of our heart, but also how to pray together, in that powerful movement of His Spirit called the Church. Prayer is where the Spirit meets us, speaks with us, shapes us, and trains us for continuing the life transforming work of Jesus Christ. The spiritual life of the individual is nothing without it. The spiritual life of the church is empty without it. So, each Sunday evening, we will gather both to learn about prayer and to practice what we have learned by praying. All are invited. May God grow us into that powerful movement of His Spirit that He intended for us to become through prayer! It will be led by Pastor Vann.
