Small groups are a great way to get plugged into the PCM by getting to know more people and studying the Word of God together. The small groups will start this fall.
Spring 2017 semester small groups:
EXPERIENCING GO- TUESDAY 7PM
This is an interactive study that invites students to join God in His work. This is an intensive course that will help you evaluate and grow in your Spiritual life. This requires around 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. The work is NOT optional but essential to get the most out of this study. If you are looking for an easy small group to be a part of this is not the one. I personally went through the original “Experiencing God” during my Junior year of college and it impacted my life from that point on to today. I was amazed how much this one study did for my spiritual journey and I would put it as a large marker on my spiritual time line. Pray about whether this is the study God wants you to be in.
JESUS ON LEADERSHIP/ NEHEMIAH- MONDAY 8PM
This small group helps develop leaders that follow the pattern of Jesus’ ministry of training people to do kingdom work. Developing servant leaders is what the PCM desires to do. This study will help you become a servant leader and give you skills that you can use not only at the PCM, but in your church and work environment as well. Mark 10:45 tells us “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” This a five week study the will give you a spiritual gifts test and personality test then show you how that affects how you serve in ministry. This is a prerequisite for leadership team but it is not just for those who want to be on leadership team.
After we finish the Jesus on Leadership book we will continue the rest of the semester going through the book of Nehemiah. This will be an inductive study of Nehemiah which is one of the best examples of a complete book that shows us how we should be leaders. During this time you will be asked to read two or three chapters of Nehemiah a week and ready to discuss and learn more about what God teaches about leadership through Nehemiah.
THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING, LESSON FROM JAMES- WED 7PM
This study has only been offered to Freshmen until now. This is open for everyone who has not been through this study. We will be diving into the book of James through “This Changes Everything, Lessons from James”. This study will challenge us with our identity with Christ. This will take just under an hour of reading and preparing a week.
