For 2020, we are thrilled to embark upon a church-wide Bible reading project! Every Sunday, we will review the previous week ’s passages and practice using the lenses of love, story, and wisdom. We ’ll use the Bible Project Videos as well. You can find the reading plan here.
RISE stands for Recovery Intersecting Spiritual Experience. Using the book of Philippians, we will discuss themes of fellowship, gratitude, service, faith, and joy.
First Century Christians, led by the Spirit of God, took the “Good News” message to the known world of their day. How did something like that happen? Their belief in the “unseen” promises of Jesus was powerfully manifested in their lives. We pursue that kind of faith today and we invite you to join us on that journey.
Sin and brokenness affect us all, but Jesus came to heal and restore. With the help of His Spirit and our church family, we can confront our brokenness and begin a journey of healing. We’re beginning such an endeavor this January by purposefully considering the more subtle sins our culture has come to tolerate. All sin is harmful to ourselves and to those around us, so there’s one obvious question: do we want to be healed? Our young ladies will lead our conversations based on the book, Respectable Sins, by Jerry Bridges. Please join us as we confront our brokenness and implement God’s wonderful plan for redemption and victory!
A very important part of our time together as a church family is our worship services and other worship gatherings. In these gatherings, various members serve an integral role in leading the family in prayer, Bible readings, and leading us to the table in communion thoughts. This worship leadership class will provide important training and equipping to those who desire to lead the church in these ways. This class is being provided because we want to honor God with our best as we intentionally lead the body gathered in worship. We encourage all who desire to lead in any of our gatherings to attend this class – even if you are already serving the church in this way. We will provide helpful information, training, insights, and expectations for those who will be leading us.
God calls us to be the Church...not consumers of church. This class will focus on answering these questions, 1) What is the Church? 2) What does it mean to be members of the Church? 3) Is the Church God envisioned what we see today? and 4) What’s next for us? We will be using Francis Chan’s book, Letters to the Church, as a guide for our discussions.
This Bible study will focus on the Gospel of Mark. We will use a Francis Chan video series to kickstart our conversations. Francis traces Jesus’ steps through Israel and challenges all of us to consider what it really means to become a disciple of the Suffering Servant.
Join us as we study the challenging and highly practical writings from James with Beth Moore. We will meet for eight weeks beginning January 15. Free childcare is available. Please register online or by contacting Elise Hairston (806-681-4387). The cost for materials is $15.
Open to all who are working through recovery with a friend, family member, or spouse. This is not an Al Anon meeting. Our group is providing a spiritual growth opportunity centered on Jesus Christ as we study the book Codependent No More.
Designed for developmentally delayed adults, Zacchaeus’ Place is our Wednesday night gathering where each week we have a Bible lesson, we sing happy birthday to anyone celebrating, and we have a prayer time that is second to none at Southwest. If you’d like to experience the joy found in this class along with making some new friends, we would love to have you join us.
A small group discussion for men about life and faith.
We care about the spiritual development of our children. And while our church events play an important role, they pale in comparison to the role of a parent in a child’s spiritual formation. Club 513 parents and students are invited to join us on Wednesdays in February as we continue our conversations intended to create a community of parents working together to build spiritually healthy families, while nurturing resilient faith in our kids. Students will be with Rachael, and parents will be with Melissa. Kids Village parents and students will have a similar experience in April. Registration is needed for parents only; children may participate with or without a parent.
Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12-step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain, or addiction of any kind. Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our lives.
Equipped Disciple is an 11-week training series designed to help followers of Christ establish great spiritual habits with scripture and prayer in the context of a small group. This class will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00. The class will finish by the end of March. Free childcare is available, and the cost for materials is $15. Registration is required online.
