This summer, our Small Group Ministry will be taking a break. But we’ll be using this time to focus on two things: 1) normalizing personal Bible reading, and 2) normalizing Christians getting together to discuss God’s Word.
Sometimes we think of “discipleship” as something that takes place when we evangelize lost people, or the work that’s performed by professionals through ministry programs. But every disciple is called to the process of discipleship, and every disciple is called to be a disciple-maker. Put simply: Christians follow Jesus, and they help others follow him as well.
Promoting these practices is the goal of our Summer Bible Jam.
Here’s what you need:
- A Bible Reading Plan
- 2 or 3 other believers to form your discipleship group

“Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life” (John 6:68)
When Paul describes how the church is to grow, he presents a vision that involves every believer’s contribution:
“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love” (Ephesians 4:15-16)
Discipleship groups are designed to put this into practice. They’re simply settings for gathering with other believers in order to speak the truth in love to one another, that the body might grow. You set the meeting time and place, how frequently your group gets together, whatever works best for you. But the goal is spending time sharing life and talking about what matters most.
Who could get together?
- Fathers & Sons
- Mothers & Daughters
- Men with Men
- Women with Women
- College Students
- Teenagers with Teenagers
- Friends you haven’t connected with recently
- Leaders with fellow leaders
Here are four questions to ask when you meet and discuss what you have read. Take turns each meeting having someone lead through the questions.
- What does this passage say about God?
- What does this passage say about humanity?
- What does this passage say about the Gospel?
- How does this passage apply to my life?

God intends to use your singleness in radical ways for his glory and your good. More specifically, God intends that your season of singleness be a glorious time of undivided devotion to Christ and undistracted ministry to others. And James wants to help you experience just that. In the series, The Gospel Through You, this powerful letter exhorts us to see the gospel work through us in ways that lead to the kind of true life and spiritual maturity we are meant to enjoy as Christian singles. I hope you will join us for this series and experience more of God in your life as the good news of Jesus Christ works through you.
We meet every 2nd Saturday of the month in room 204 for worship, teaching and fellowship. Desserts are provided. For more info contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We now offer an option for Online Giving through our website.
Online giving is a convenience that many people find useful. Giving transactions are handled through a trusted, secure site that allows both church members and guests to designate gifts to the General Fund or several other funds. The system allows users to create a profile for return visits, set up and personalize recurring contributions and create e-mail reminders for future contributions.
“Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.” (Philippians 4:17)
“Honor the Lord with your wealth” (Prov. 3:8)
